Alykes Beach in Zakynthos

Information About Alykes

Alykes Zakynthos: The area of Alykes Zante (or Alikes) is located 18 km north-west of the capital of Zakynthos and took its name from the salt-pits (alykes in Greek) hidden behind the village of Alykes. Those salt-pits used to be the main source of income and wealth of the islanders. A beautiful sandy beach can be found in Alykes, attracting many visitors for its amazing sand and crystalline waters. The main road passing through the settlement is boarded by a lot of restaurants, bars and tourist shops.

Numerous accommodations are available in the area. The coastal settlement of Alykanas is to be found a couple of kilometres from Alykes and is less popular (and less crowded) than Alykes. It offers a beautiful sandy beach which is the continuation of Zante Alykes Beach and also has crystal-clear waters. The whole area has many archaeological sites of great importance and interest for one to visit.

Alykes is so welcoming and you feel completely safe. Never once felt uncomfortable walking around at night. The beach and sea is just the best. Like stepping into a warm bath. This is what Alykes is all about, wonderful beach.The people in Alykes are lovely. The tavernas serve wonderful food at any time you want it. The people go out of their way to make you welcome. Add to that the sunshine. There is nothing else you could want. If you walk up the mountains you get a picture of the history of the place and other attractions are just a boatride away. Interesting scenery. Because of the salt flats it is slightly different. Maybe a little clean up between the Astoria and Montreal Hotel is needed, but it really isn't a problem. Somehow adds to the charm! The local food is exquisite. You should always be tasting local cuisine when you visit a different country. For those people who are more fussy they serve a variety of foods from all other countries. So there is something for everyone. There is only one restaurant we would not return to. Go to Alykes. Stay at the Montreal and sit on the beach, enjoying the sunshine and view. Visit a different Taverna every evening. You will come back totally refreshed. I am told Argassi is also a lovely place.
