Tsilivi Zante

In a pretty setting and with a lovely curving sandy beach, Tsilivi has managed to combine a traditional village atmosphere with that of a modern holiday resort.

The beach is one of the best on the island, but it can get very busy in July and August. Most accommodation is located away from the town centre and the main road so you should get a good night's sleep. Only a few of miles northwest of Zante Town, there is an hourly bus service to the capital. Road signs in this area are hopeless so make sure you've got a map if you venture out.

A wide range of water sports are available. The night life can be quite lively with a growing number of bars and discos to suite all tastes
