Alykes Resort

Resorts on Zante


Alykes Summary:

Alykes and Alykanes are less developed than the resorts in the south, but they too have grown-up recently and this year you will you find karaoke bars for the first time which you will either love or hate. It's still much quieter than resorts like Tsilivi and Laganas, and will probably suit more people now than previously. Horse and carriages have replaced taxis and will provide free transport to local restaurants. The beaches are excellent, long and sandy and very safe for children. It is still a very relaxing and friendly place but if peace and quiet is your priority then why not look at Amoudi a couple of kms south of Alykanas. No British tour operator covers this resort and there have been few changes in recent years. If you get up early you can even have the beach completely to yourself.
