Jennifer Alder - you'll love it - Just returned from the Daisy Studios around the corner from the Zante Star. Your around 5mins stroll from the beach and a 10min walk fom the town centre. 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
Though the beaches are still very clean ,some parts are difficult to walk through ,lots of rocks and sand bags ,but generally stilll very nice sea very very rocky when you walk in best to wear some sort of shoes ,though past lifetime beach bar the sea get clearer
jet ski's are mintt ! very very fun ! mintt staff as well !
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.
Hi been to Tsilivi 5 times in july and september in fact we where there last july beach not over crowded in fact very quiet at times the whole resort quiet last year.
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.
I have been going to the island and used the watersports in tsilivi for around about 15yrs now, what can i say.
2 Weeks in Tsilivi, staying at the Alamis just up the road and went to Tsilivi Watersports a few times!!
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.

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.
DVD, Sunglasses, jewellery, fishing rods, sun hats, sod me it was like being at a car boot sale, only you tend not to be pestered every day.......and those deaf mutes that dump their garbage on the table when you are about to eat or drink.......PLEASE..... just have a day off.....
loved tsilivi, what a great resort, great beach, great people!!! dont know why people always b***h about the dvd guys.. not once did they pester us or people around us if you said no they would simply walk away and wouldnt bother you again!!!
1st time in Tsilivi and loved it!!The view from Freddies beach bar....Superb!Wonderful place,Wonderful people.The first of many trips to this lovely island.Jo and Rich Owen.xx
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
