Tsilivi is also known as Planos because the resort consists of two small villages which have merged, Tsilivi being right around the sea and Planos around the main road. The main road is close to the sea anyway, and there is no visible border between the two villages, so both are literally one and the same resort. It can be also said that Tsilivi is the name of the beach of Planos. It is a preferred place for holiday on Zakynthos by people of all ages.
Tsilivi is located on the east coast of the island, 5 km away from the capital. It has a sandy Blue Flag beach with shallow and clean water. There are also a couple of smaller coves nearby. The resort has many hotels and guest houses, as well as restaurants, car rentals, cafes, shops and a few night clubs.
