In Alykes, the garden of restaurants and bars are bursting all summer long with large groups of people having great fun.
The small river of Skourtis runs alongside the road and features a beautiful stone-built bridge, manufactured by the British during their possession of the island. The salt-pits, which in Greek are called Alykes and have lent their name to the resort, are located behind the village and at one time were the most significant contributor to the island’s economy.
Alykes in Zante is also the home of one of the island’s hot springs that has been given the strange name of “Kolosourtis” which loosely translated means “bottom-dragger”!
Alykanas and Alykes in Zakynthos have practically merged into one, as there is only 1km between the two resorts. Alykanas is spread out across the fertile plain amongst olive groves and has a large selection of shops, bars restaurants and tavernas which are quiet and relaxing in low season, but considerably more lively in the high season. The beach is a continuation of the coastline golden sand from Alykes. There are many hotels, apartments and studios to choose from to suit everyone.
Old Alykanas is situated on the outskirts of Alykanas towards the coast and is the original village; here you can find small tavernas and accommodation in quiet and peaceful areas.
