Tsilivi is a popular resort that continues to expand to accommodate its growing number of devotees without losing its traditional charm. Situated on the north-east coast of Zante, Tsilivi is only nine kilometres from the airport and benefits from a short transfer time.

It is worth taking a trip inland to the picturesque villages with their whitewashed houses swathed in climbing blossom and fertile vineyards where the authentic spirit of Greece is found. The tavernas here serve good wholesome food and wine.
A Tsilivi holiday would be incomplete without a trip to Smuggler’s cove. It is the most photographed cove in the whole of Greece with its tall cliffs, golden sands and wrecked ship half-buried in the sand. Although it can be viewed from above, the best place to see it is from out at sea.
Tsilivi nightlife has a good mix of lively and not so lively venues and as such, it pleases a variety of people. There are many tavernas and restaurants where you can enjoy an evening meal under the stars enjoying conversation in the company of friends. There are also limited numbers of karaoke bars and clubs where you can dance until the early hours of the morning.

In the evening stall holders set out their wares in order to relieve visitors of their Euros. Those looking for a greater variety can make the short journey to Zante Town where its maze of streets are filled with shops of every description. Popular souvenirs include leather goods, jewellery, ceramics and embroidered linens.
Tsilivi has a large number of restaurants and tavernas providing a wide range of food catering for almost all tastes. There are establishments serving British fare for the less adventurous palate, burgers for the fast food addicts and international dishes for those who need their Friday night curry or Chinese. There are, of course, many tavernas serving traditional food. As in all Greek islands, fish features prominently on menus and locally caught fish, simply cooked, is always satisfying. Moussaka is another Greek favourite made from minced lamb, aubergines and a béchamel sauce. A good way to try traditional food is to order Mezedes, the Greek equivalent of the Spanish tapas, which includes a variety of bite-sized fish, meat and vegetables.
Local wines are inexpensive and very palatable.
Children are always made very welcome in restaurants and their tastes and portion size are usually accommodated.
