Take some time out of your normal routine to enjoy everything that a holiday to Alykes has to offer. Formerly a municipality of Zakynthos (Zante), this Greek holiday destination is a base for exploring the island, uncovering secluded bays, and experiencing a dose of luxury. Facing the ocean are a profusion of restaurants, hotels, and shops. Alykes holidays are the ideal choice for water sports enthusiasts, food connoisseurs, and all-around sun lovers.

Based just 19 kilometres from the airport, the overall journey to Alykes won't be too tiring, making it an ideal location for a holiday in 2020. Whether your afternoon is spent sipping cocktails on a rooftop bar, spotting dolphins on a cruise, or renting a jet ski, Alykes will not disappoint. Located on the same island where the earthquake-surviving Roma Mansion stands, Alykes is well-developed, but traditional enough to give you a taste of authentic Greek life.

Top attractions

Beaches, lighthouses, cycling paths and a whole lot more is waiting to be discovered on a holiday in Alykes. The beach resort is blessed with its location on Zakynthian territory, what with the island being home to famous Shipwreck Beach. Snorkel, dive, or simply marvel at Greece's most photographed bay, which is also known as Navagio beach. After visiting and inspecting the rusty wreck, swap the sand for sapphire-coloured waters by investigating the Blue Caves or Keri Caves in a kayak.

Did you know that you will be located just a short drive from Zakynthos National Marine Park when you book a holiday to Alykes? The loggerhead Caretta Caretta sea turtle breed in this protected part of Laganas Bay. Another interesting attraction worth adding to the 'must visit' list is Askos Stone Park. Animal lovers will be in their element as they wander the land that donkeys, goats, tortoises, and peacocks roam freely on.

Should you be searching for natural attractions, Alykes' beaches will leave you open-mouthed. Xigia is one of the most famous beaches on the island. Arrive early to beat the crowds and claim a section of sand, as sunbathing spots can be a little limited at this small cove. Sulfur can be seen in the water and if you paddle out, you'll find yourself approaching caves that camouflage into the cliff face. Xigia's sulfur-rich water is said to have healing properties, but be aware of the fact that the sulfur will turn silver jewellery black!

Another beach you can visit during your holiday in Alykes is Makrios Gialos. Many people will stumble across this scenic beach whilst cruising around the island on a scooter or in a vehicle. Clean and flawless, the atmosphere is pleasant at Makrios Gialos and the crystalline bay is not saturated with crowds of holidaymakers, much like the beaches in nearby Kalamaki and Tsilivi usually are.
