Alykes is a family holiday resort in northwest Zakynthos
, with a long sandy beach. It shares the same bay as Alykanas
and the distance between them is very short.
Compared to the busy villages of Laganas
, Alykes is a bit calmer, although it has enough restaurants, cafes and mini-markets. Most of the beach is organized by beach tavernas and beach bars, so plenty of sunbeds are available for a small charge. Alykes is very suitable for kids as the sea is shallow many meters away from the shore. Various water sports are also available.
