Located on the northeast coast of the beautiful Greek island of Zante, Tsilivi strikes an ideal balance between peaceful accommodation and lively nightlife. It is a great resort for fun-loving families, couples and groups and, while it does not compare to island party spot Laganas in terms of wild nightclubs and bars, Tsilivi still has plenty of energy when the sun goes down.
The island of Zante, which is also known as Zakynthos, is the most southerly of the Ionian island group. The group is located to the west of the mainland of Greece and is blessed with some of the best beaches in the nation. Just one look at Smuggler’s Cove (or Navagio/Shipwreck Beach) is enough to convince you of this fact: sands and cliff faces of pure white, azure waters that dazzle in their clarity, and a pesto-coloured coating of trees that seem to cling to the rock… this island beach is one compelling reason to book Tsilivi holidays.
The long beach within the resort of Tsilivi itself has won a Blue Flag for is pristine sands and clear waters. There are sun loungers for hire and water sports to have a go at, as well as quiet spots where you can simply lay down your towel and sprawl in peace on those long, hot summer afternoons.
Family holidays in Tsilivi are a joy. There is a new water park in the resort, as well as mini golf and 10-pin bowling. International restaurants with varied and well-priced menus cater for a wide range of tastes, so even the fussiest of eaters will leave satisfied.
In Tsilivi, all-inclusive holidays are a popular option, with a generous number of three-and four-star hotels catering for guests around the clock. If you are after cheap Tsilivi holidays, you can find bargain prices on all-inclusive accommodation, as well as cheap package deals for hotels that offer board on a self-catering or bed-and-breakfast basis. Think about how you would like to spend your time in Tsilivi and whether you like to explore the local restaurant scene before you make up your mind about which hotel to pick. You don’t have to worry too much about day-to-day spending on all-inclusive breaks, but if you like to eat out and experience the local hospitality you might not get the full value of an all-inclusive stay.
