Alikes, Zakynthos Island

Alykes is a small, lovely tourist resort situated at a distance of 17,5 kilometers northwestern to the town of Zakynthos. This scenic place has taken its name after the saltpans near the beach.

There are several things worth seeing in the area. First of all it is the excellent environment: there is a small river flowing in the beach of the settlement, with a very interesting stone bridge with five arches.

The visitor will enjoy an excursion to the scenic village of Katastari (1250 permanent residents) at a distance of 2 kilometers western to Alykes: situated within an overgrown environment with vineyards and olive trees, the village offers a marvelous view of the beach of Alykes.

Don’t miss to visit the interesting Folk Museum at Pigadakia, some 3,5 kilometers at the Southeast. You will see a rich collection of traditional house ware, along with tools and equipment of old professions.

If you are interested in old Monasteries, you should visit the Holy Monastery of Aghios Ioannis Prodromos (St. John the Baptist), established in the 17 th century; it is an ideal place to take photos, as from here you will have an excellent view of the cove and the blue sea, usually very calm.

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. If you prefer a more casual staying, a big camping with full facilities is available.

You will enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the excellent, long sandy beach of the settlement, very well organised with sea sport facilities and crystal clear sea.

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. The main road of the settlement is full of bars, cafes and gift shops.

In case of health problems, a local Medical Center is available at Katastari, at a distance of 2 kilometers western to Alykes.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (17,5 kilometers far away) is possible by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes. At the eastern part of the settlement within the small cove, you will find a safe marina for small tourist yachts and fishing boats.
