Alykes

Alykes village is located 18 km to the north-west of Zakynthos town. Alykes means a Salt Lake- a place of production of salt when it is made by evaporating sea water under the influence of heat from the sun and wind. Alykes nowadays is a widely renowned resort with a great sandy beach, a real tourist magnet during the summer. One can visit the old (16th cent.) St. John the Baptist Monastery. Other sights that are worth a visit are: the famous Navagio (Shipwreck) and the Cape Schinari with its wonderful caves, with therapeutic waters and spectacular sunlight reflections, making the water change through a kaleidoscope of colors. Alykes village is very friendly and great for families. It was built on a flat spot, which is great for cyclists who can also visit the nearby areas of Tragaki and Planos. If you walk along the beach of Alykes, you will reach the village of Alykanas. It is a small, traditional village built around a church and a small marketplace, surrounded by fertile fields and many farms. The beach there has fine sand, and you may also enjoy your favorite water sport (jet-skis or windsurfing).
