Alykes

Location: In the resort of Alykes next to Alykanas about 20km northwest of Zakynthos town
Getting There: Quite a distance from the other main resorts, you will probably combine a visit here with a tour of the island. The main road will take you through Katastari, although there is a more scenic route around the coast
Access: Several access points, most without any steps
Sunbeds: Yes, but plenty of areas where you can lie on the sand
Toilets: In the nearby bars and restaurants
Watersports: Yes, including boat trips to the Shipwreck and Blue Caves
Safe for Kids: Yes, the water remains very shallow along most of the beach.
Food & Drinks: Plenty of nearby bars and restaurants
Turtles: No
Seaweed: Not usually a problem
Sand or Pebbles: Fine sand mixed with small pebbles in some parts of the beach
Car Parking: Usually fairly easy to find a place to park nearby

Came to Zante with my mum a few weeks ago and had a great time.  We had mixed weather but the beach was lovely and Mr Kev made the stay even more enjoyable - attentive but not intrusive!

A great beach and it was made all the better by Mr Kev. He made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble, serving drinks, food etc. He also gave us some great tips about the resort and island. He was always there with a happy smiling face. We tried other beaches but this was definetly the best.

just thought id comment on alykes beach, after reading other comments i cant agree more about kev and the beach outside the buca bar, ive been to zante for years and my sister lives there, so i should know when i say this beach is the best, as for kev, what a top bloke, he was there when you wanted him and wasnt there when you didnt, we didnt have to do anything, everything was there for us, including tablets for when my wife got stung in mouth by a wasp, and he was also brilliant with the kids. hope to see him again in july, 10 out of 10. as for the bloke on the other side of the beach, wot a pain. , he pestered us and got rude when we chose to go to kevs side of the beach, 0 out of 10. bit of advice if your looking for somewhere to sunbathe for the day, got to kevs side.

click to enlarge   click to enlarge beach outside buca bar was fantastic and made all the better by kev (mr kev). nothing is too much trouble for him, he brought lilos and toys for our children. my son lost his mask in a wave and mr kev gave him another. the kids broke one of the bats and kev was straight over with another set for them. he brought us great ice creams from buca bar too.
 he keeps the beach clean and is always on hand for anything you may need, including a "good b***h" eh kevin!!!

he's easy to spot, just look for a tall guy in red shorts who resembles a tanned eric sykes and thats your man!!!

hope he's there next year, top bloke and a lovely clean beach.

thanks for everything kevin, from garry janet sally and jack xxxx

ps: hope your daughter didn't leave you too skint this year after her trip over

Went all over the island and this beach was definately one of the best. The water is exceptionally clear and warm (and thats saying something as i have been to the Maldives). The best spot is in front of the Asteria. Vladimir looks after the beach here and will keep you entertained, he is very funny and polite and a general sweetie, once you've met him its hard to forget him, hes such a character.

 
The water is very shallow and calm and takes you forever to get out of your depth, great for kids. Can't wait to return.

Beach is lovely - soft, gentle sand and very shallow.  You can go out about 200m and it still wasn't above my chin (I'm only 5ft 4) !

We used the sunbeds on the beach near the Golden Dolphin watersports.  Not as many sunbeds out this year as in previous years but a great welcome from Nikos at Golden Dolphin as usual.
 
Very safe for young children.

what a fantastic beach visited this beach every time i have been. the last time i came was with my friends. the beach is so clean and you can see to the bottom of the water. MR Kev let us use the lilos and the ringos for free. he always brought us drinks so we didnt have to get up and he was always checking we were ok. he is a lovely man and cant wait to see you next year Mr Kev.

thanx

This is the best beach on Zakynthos

 
 
 
See Dennis at the south end of the beach for the best sunbed hire....he's a diamond, a nice guy who speaks to his customers and makes them feel welcome.
 
This is a good beach for families and the elderly....very safe and clean

 Brilliant beach in Alykes.  This was our third time here and we just love the beach.  Better than the Caribbean!!!!  White sand, crystal clear water (tho very salty!!!) and extremely safe as you can walk way out and only be waist deep.

Beach is lovely, nice sand, in the sea, it is a little gravely, be careful of the wind we got a little burnt as it was windy. sunbeds a little pricey I thought at 7 euros, but when on holiday. Lots of taverners and bars to eat and drink at on the beach.

I love this beach as it is very clean and 10 yards away from my appartment.You can rent out pedoloes ,jetskies and even go on the bannanna boat wich is a lot of fun . there is a peer by the beach where you can go fishing and catch many types of fish.the sand can get very hot so it is a good idea to where sandles.There are not a lot of people on the beach in the morning but the beach gets more busy at lunch time.The brilliant thing about the sea is the fish bite your toes but it doesnt hurt just tickles.

This is the beach to the left of the Jetty near the Athena.It is also where alot of the local people go and  and is less English which trust me is a big plus.

We loved this beach, we always sat at the front to the left of Bucca Bar , it was great the sea was nice and shallow really far out so great for kids. not to busy but not too quiet.  Sunbeds are seven euros for two but lots for people just sit on the sand.
