Blue Flag beach and seafood tavernas
Located on Zakynthos’ north-east coast, Tsilivi has stacks going on. During the day, settle down on the Blue Flag sandy beach – the shallow waters and watersports make it a great playground for families.
Greek cuisine is a huge draw here, with tavernas serving up local favourites and the freshest seafood (we recommend a little taster of the lobster and prawns). If you are looking for more of an ouzo-filled evening, there’s a generous dose of bars to choose from.
Flight time from the UK to Zakynthos is around 3 hours 30 minutes.
Transfer time from Zakynthos airport to Tsilivi is approximately 15 minutes.
Zakynthos is very much a summer destination, with temperatures starting to climb around Easter time. May and June are pleasantly warm, and by July you can expect the mercury to nudge 30 degrees. Being an island, you can often expect a sea breeze or two - a welcome break from the midsummer heat.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
