The sea tempts you in with its azure-tinged waters, and there’s nothing more idyllic than strolling through ancient olive groves and quiet villages. The Altura Hotel in Tsilvi offers fantastic sea views, with the beach just a stone’s throw away.

Things to do in Tsilvi

Resort Summary

Once a small, traditional fishing village, Tsilivi is now second only to Laganas in terms of size and nightlife. Fringed with pine trees and olive groves, the bustling resort has become a popular destination with families and party-goers looking for a cheap Zante holiday with a difference.

Families will enjoy the Blue Flag-accredited beach with its shallow, calm water that is perfect for paddling. The resort also benefits from a multitude of other fun activities including a fantasy mini-golf course set in beautiful gardens complete with dinosaur statues and water features. There are plenty of quieter, child-friendly bars and restaurants away from the wild party scene, and the bowling alley offers neon-lit, late-night games.

In recent years Tsilivi has gained a reputation for great nightlife – as the sun goes down the main street comes alive with live music bars, traditional pubs and nightclubs which provide a fantastic evening for everyone.

You’ll find food to fit all dining budgets and tastes in Tsilivi, from international to Greek. For a taste of authentic Zante, head to the traditional tavernas dotted around the village and sample skordostoumpi, made with aubergines and garlic, or order a mezze table and experience a host of different Greek flavours.
