There’s ample to do once the sun goes down, there’s karaoke if that’s you’re thing. Pub quizzes, live music and Greek nights too.

Don’t expect the night life to be as lively as Laganas, that’s the main 18-30 resort in Zakythos and is very lively, Tsilivi is more of an all rounder, it’s great for families but has some good night life too.
In Tsilivi, you’ll find all sorts of entertainment that’s absolutely perfect for those with families that need to be kept entertained. There’s a mini golf course, bowling alley, amusement park, and a reptile house, which offers guided tours of over 50 species.
Another option for entertaining the little ones is Tsilivi water park, it offers loads of slides, tubes, a kids area and lazy river amongst others. Perfect for a day or two.
For those that like a bit of culture, there’s a Venetian Watch Tower at the northern end of the beach, it’s fairly small but does give decent views of the area. There’s also a maritime museum and an olive oil museum too.
