Getting There: Road routes can be difficult to follow as there is no direct main road. There is an hourly bus service to Zakynthos town
Access: Several access points leading direct onto the beach with no steps

Showers: Yes
Toilets: In beachside bars and restaurants

Plenty  of  boat  trips  to  be  done,  one  leaves  from  the  'harbour'  in Tsilivi  itself  twice  per  day  and  is  40euros  pp.  The  blokes  got  a   stall  there  full  of  info  and  its  the  opposite  end  of  the  beach.  For  the  laugh  of  the  holiday,  go  to  the  Two  Brothers  Bars [find Popeys Resteruant, go up the hill  and  keep  going] for  music and home made entertainment, including regular visits from Elvis Presley [not joking] Great  meals from Benikos  and the  Olive Garden   [Daisy Studios and just keep going]  Planet Pub has a nightclub atmosphere, Freddies  Beach  bar, Menir Resteraunt  all  recommended. Been  to  Tsilivi  5  occasions  in  6  years  and  recommend  it  for  its  friendliness,  great  food,  plenty  of  shops  and  plenty  of  things  to  do - without  being  mental....enjoy

click to enlarge A lovely, relaxing beach, with no idiots kicking footballs all over you while you're sunbathing. Try the wide range of watersports. Ilias and Emilio will look after your needs.

Have booked today for Tsilivi and found this website which could be really helpful as we have never been to Zante before. It sounded just what we were looking for so we just went for it! We are booked into the Zante Star Hotel for two weeks from 16/09/2010 so any info would be great please. I must say so far all the comments have been positive. We usually go to Kos and stay in kefalos which we really liked but as Olympic no longer fly from Birmingham to Kos it was time for a change. We are three 'ladies' who like local wine,sun,sea,sand and boat trips if available and of course a good laugh. So will we like it there?

Without doubt this is the best beach on the Island. The water is shallow for quite a way, which makes it safe for children. Some of the beach is a but pebbly so if you have sensitive feet then beach/snorkling shoes are a good investment. The water is fairly warm and is safe from jelly fish and other nasty creatures. There are plenty of places to buy a drink or get a snack from and there are people walking up and down the beach selling cds, snacks and massages but they don't bother you which is good. The beach offers a good selection of watersports, which are a bit pricey. For 30 euros yiu only get 10 mins on a jetski for example. A canoe is 10 euros for an hour. There are some nice hotels a little further along the beach and you can hire sunbeds for 4 euros a day-this includes a table with an umbrella and 2 sunloungers-my boyfriend and I bought out own umbrella for 6 euros and lilos which we took home with us.

Just back from two weeks in Tsilivi, and spent most days on the lovely beach. It's quite a long, narrow beach, but very comfortable.

Unlike Laganas, there's no ghettoblasters pounding all day, or young guys kicking balls in your face while you're trying to sunbathe.
The sea is nice and shallow for quite a distance out, with only a small amount of pebbles to encounter as you wade in.
Tsilivi Watersports offer plenty activities for the more active holidaymaker - pedallos, Crazy Shark, Banana, Canoes, Para-sailing etc.
Sunloungers are mainly 6 euros for two.
You'll find the usual cd/dvd sellers, but they tend to accept a polite 'no thank-you' more readily than they do in Laganas.
There's a live webcam on the 'gozakynthos' website, so check the beach online for yourselves.

Hii Guys
I'm off to Tsilivi in 12 days.. so excited!! I was just wondering if it is true that during peak season the beach is often so full to the point where there is no space? I've found this to be the case on many sites but my boyfriend and his friends are determined on playing football on the beach. Will it be possible for them to do so?

The beach needs to be cleaned a lot more, over the years it has been getting worse, litter, cig ends, etc.

 The beach isn't as big as it once was. There are a lot of stones just near the waters edge this year making getting into the sea quite difficult.
 
Near to the Tsilivi Beach Hotel part of the beach is washed away, making it difficult to access the quieter end of the resort. Take care of the overhanging olive tree if heading this way (especially at night!)
 
The amount of sunloungers is ever increasing but there are still some areas where you can place your own towels or play beach games.
 
Although still a nice beach it could be improved if people took there own rubbish/cigarette dumps with them at the end of the day!

This beach is lovely, the sea is very warm like a bath. There are some chracters who work along the beach. The dvd sellers etc can get annoying, and the people who offer massages. The best beach worker is the fruit salad man! " Fresh fruit salad!"...Juicy Lucy, Monica Belucci", "Fandabidozi"

Just returned from our 5th visit  and the beach had changed quite a bit, the rock pools near the harbour have disapeared & also a small part of the beach near the watersports has been washed away. Still love it, still child friendly & will go back for my 6th visit    We didn't find the DVD  or other sellers a pain just say no thank you & they go away.

Back in the UK 2 days from 16 glorius days in Tsilivi, already booked next trip for October this year... only 16 weeks to go, can't wait. One of the best things about tsilivi is the beautiful beach. Clean, warm clear sea and plenty of space. Would reccomend it to anyone

Well I hate to say it but Tsilivi beach was a huge disapointment for us this year. This was our third time there and we were absolutely horrified when we saw what had happened to it. Tsilivi 'was' a beautiful, relatively unspoiled beach....... untill now. Who's idea was it to install the walkway half way down the beach and plaster the sand with rows and rows of ugly regimented plastic sun beds? It looks awful. The walk way is a good idea but needs to be along the back of the beach. We thought we'd taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up in Laganas. 

Sorry guys but you've ruined one of the best features of Tsilivi

the beach was amazing. Could walk in the sea out a long way and still able to touch and see the bottom. Sun beds are cheap enought. 6euro's for two (for whole day).

If you do decide to go on beach, when you walk on turn left and walk up that way. If you stay in the middle or right there is alot of pebbles, stones and shingles on the edge of the sea which really hurts when walking on them. Only prob with going left is that it does get a little busy. Ensure plenty of cream on as the breeze hides the fact that your beginning to burn.
 
Onlty problem we found was the men selling copied DVD's but if your polite and say no they leave you alone. Just pretend your sleeping and they will just walk right past as thats what we did hehe x

 Fourth time to Tsilivi (3 to Laganas) and one of the best beaches around.  I'm not a strong swimmer so the fact that it is really shallow for a long way out, is great - never mind good for the kids - good for the adults too!!!!
 
Spent most of our sunbathing time at the Local Bar - free sunbeds so you're still on the beach, and good snacks when you want!
