Alikanas, Zakynthos Island

The small, coastal tourist resort of Alicanas is found at a distance of 16 kilometers northwestern to the town of Zakynthos and 2 kilometers southern to Alykes. It is a lovely settlement with an extended (some 3 kilometers long) beach in front of it and 350 permanent residents.

If leaving the beach doesn’t seem too hard for you, you may wander around and visit the area where, as archaeologists suggest, it was built the most ancient town of the island, the Mycenean Arcadia. Several potsherds and ceramic vessels found here evidence for this.

Several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let are available both within the village and in the area around. Most of them are open from April or May until October.

Food is good here, as all over the island; the taverns and restaurants of the village offer fresh fish and a variety of local dishes and Greek and International cooking. You will also find many bars, cafes and gift shops. If you choose this place for your holidays, you will enjoy a peaceful staying (unless you choose to come here during the peak periods) with many alternatives of nightlife and amusement.

The visitor will enjoy swimming at the long, well-organised beach with crystal clear sea, close to the settlement, within the cove of Alykes, as well as at the beaches of Xehoriatis and Aghia Kyriaki.

For health problems, you may address to the local Medical Center of Katastari (4 kilometers to the West) or the Health Services of the capital Zakynthos, 16 kilometers far away at the South.

Access from the town of Zakynthos is possible by public buses, running regularly, by taxi, as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes. You will need some 20 minutes to arrive to Alicanas, from the town of Zakynthos and some 30 minutes from the airport.
