Holidays in Tsilivi are very popular with holidaymakers from various European countries, most notably Britain and Ireland. The beautiful sandy beach is considered one of the best in Zakynthos and although it gets very busy during the summer holidays, it is always clean and well-maintained. Those looking for a quieter beach would do well to hire a car as there are countless idyllic bays and coves all over the island, many of which can only be reached by car or taxi.
Many people visiting Tsilivi do so on package holiday deals so it can be extremely difficult to get a room in peak season if you travel independently. Tsilivi has rapidly grown in size over the past couple of decades and it’s now a lively, modern resort. There are many self-catering properties in Tsilivi and staying at one of these allows you to make the most of the countless tavernas and restaurants in the resort. Western-style fast-food is widely served, along with traditional Greek dishes. Nightlife is centred around the bars in the town with some of the most popular places becoming very lively after dark.
Daytimes in Tsilivi tend to be spent poolside or on the stunning beach but it’s possible to explore much of the island from here. Zakynthos Town is just a short drive away along a scenic route and is worth a visit, although there’s probably not much to keep you there longer than a few hours. Boat trips regularly leave Tsilivi in the summer months and take in famous spots such as Smuggler’s Cove and the Blue Caves.
