Once a small fishing village, Tsilivi has flourished into an idyllic, action-packed resort perfect for families. Its chilled-out personality offers holidaymakers a taste of relaxation, alongside plenty of attractions and activities. Swathed in olive groves and wreathed by vineyards, it’s managed to keep its traditional Greek allure. With a two-kilometre sweep of golden sand lapped by sapphire seas, its beauty was rewarded with a Blue Flag status. Here you can tan on the shore, dip your toes in the sea, or even take a shot of adrenaline with some water sports.
When the sun sets, the quiet streets come alive with cosy tavernas and waterfront restaurants offering a flavour of Greece, with mezes, sizzling meat dishes, and moussaka being a menu staple. In recent years Tsilivi has gained a reputation for its vibrant nightlife – visit the local bars for a quiet drink or evacuate to the dancefloor in one of the nightclubs. Kids are well catered for, with thrilling slides at Tsilivi Water Park, a fantasy golf course and a sleek bowling alley. Why not set sail on the water, with scenic boat trips available to Turtle Island, where you could be lucky enough to spot nesting loggerhead turtles. History fans are in luck as Zante Town is a short fifteen-minute drive away, with a crumbling old fort and world-class museums on offer.
