5 = Superb! Best we visited. Worth going far out of our way to swim there again
4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = Good. We would choose it for swimming among other beaches if we were in the area
2 = Average. We could go for swimming again if we happened to be in the area

  • Notes:
    Pisina beach is the best beach in Sivota. Soft white sand (that sticks to everything), beautiful blue water, isolation, and enough vegetation to create the illusion of a tropical island. It's only accessible by boat from the town of Sivota, and it does get fairly crowded in the summer.

    You can take a water taxi from Sivota harbor and the ride would take anywhere from ten minutes if you go straight to the beach, or half hour if the captain takes his time and sails around the islands and inside the caverns on the cliffs. You pay one price, for going and the taxi captain will let you know what time they'll be back to pick you up from the beach.

    Alternately, you can rent a motor boat for the day at Sivota and then you can stay on the beach longer after all the water taxis have taken their passengers back to town. You could get to it in a kayak or canoe, but if the weather turns sour, you might be stuck on the beach, or worst, in the middle of the sea in a little kayak.

    Whatever method you choose to get to Pisina beach, don't neglect to bring your own water, food, and shade along because there are no amenities on the island. Bringing your snorkeling gear is also highly recommended. The beach is shallow so it's perfect for children too.
RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
