Alykanas, Zante, Greece

With its beautiful beaches, whitewashed houses and welcoming atmosphere, this village is as traditional as they come. The resort does offer a few tavernas, restaurants and bars, some of which do stay open quit late. A good resort for families and couples.


Alykanas offers three sun-bleached bays, village houses and friendly locals who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Alykanas still has all the modern feel you could hope for in a charming holiday village and offers a perfect location for laid back, relaxing holidays.

There is a lovely sandy beach at Alykanas and you can walk along the beach to the resort of Alykes Village. The beach is perfect for snorkelling.

Out and About
