Ubicazione e mappa - Villa Pouliezos Apartments in Alykes

Located on the northeast coastline of the island of Zakynthos, 15 kilometres from the capital, Alykes and Alykanas are two enticing beaches, adjacent to each other, occupying an area of approximately 3 kilometres in length. The golden sand slides very gently into the crystal clear waters, which makes the beaches ideal for families with children. The waters are always clean due to northern winds and sea currents. These beaches are far from any cumbersome industrial development; however they feature tourist facilities which have adjusted well to the natural environment without compromising the demands for comfort.

Alykes is a beautiful, lush area with a breathtaking mountain view. It is dotted with restaurants, tavernas, bars, super markets, souvenir shops and more. Most of the shops are strewn along the main road of the village of Alykes. On the beach you will also find tavernas and snack bars for lunch or a refreshing drink after your swim. For those inclined towards water sports and adventure, the options are countless; name it and you will find it: jet skiing, paragliding, banana riding, water skiing, etc.

A special attraction in Alykes is the Pentokamaro Bridge overlooking the Skourtis River. The bridge is built entirely of stone and its name denotes the fact that the bridge incorporates five arches (kamares in Greek). We do not know the exact date of its construction, but we know that it was erected during the period of the English rule on the island. The bridge is truly worth a visit! Two more attractions are the monastery of St John the Baptist and the salt pan (alykes in Greek) which gave its name to the surrounding area.

Alikanas (or Alykanas) lies next to Alykes in an area dotted with olive trees. The beach here, too, is wonderful featuring an inlet with fishing boats. You will find bars, restaurants and more. Life is quiet during the low summer season but thrives during the high season. Night life is not particularly intense. However, there are a few bars where you can enjoy your cocktail and good music. It is ideal for those in search of relaxation and tranquility.
