What's Alykes like

Alykes is a village on the north east coast of Zakynthos, about 15km from the capital Zakynthos Town and that’s around a 20 minute drive.

Alykes is a natural extension of nearby Alykanas and provides travellers with a desirable mid-point between the hyper-developed areas south of Zakynthos Town and the unspoiled remote villages on the north-western parts of the island.

A wide variety of hotels and apartments are available, so while this village is on the quieter side, you won’t feel removed from civilisation. There are also several traditional Greek tavernas in town and Alykes’ close proximity to other resorts makes it easy to get out and about if you tire of the town’s own offerings.

One of the main reasons for visiting Alykes, beside the relaxed atmosphere is the beach, it’s wide and sandy, slopes gently into the sea, has water sports and multiple tavernas so it’s easy to see why people love it. To find out more go to the Alykes beach page.

Alykes nightlife

Night life in Alykes is laid back and casual. There’s plenty of places to sit around enjoying a drink or an extended meal but don’t expect clubs or any sort of parties. You can find Greek nights with dancing and traditional music, there’s also live music and karaoke too so there’s plenty to keep you entertained.

If you get bored of the night life in Alykes then head to Alykanas. it’s probably slightly more active in the evenings but definitely still not what you would call lively. If you do want a big night out then you can always make the short trip to Tsilivi.

What to do around Alykes

If you fancy stepping out from Alykes and not just to Alykanas then options are kind of limited, you can explore the north east coast where you'll find Xigia Sulpher beach, Makris Gialos beach, the odd tavena and eventually St Nicholas Port close to the northern tip of the island.

Alternatively head south to Tsilivi or even Zakynthos Town to take in what those popular tourist hotspots have to offer.
