Alykanas is a relaxing beach resort on Zakynthos, the third-largest Greek island off the country’s west coast. Zakynthos (sometimes called by its Italian name, Zante) is Greece’s southernmost isle in the Ionian Sea, and one of the country's prettiest islands. The resort offers a good mix of modern apartments, hotels, and villas, some of which have wonderful views of the Ionian Sea.
Thanks to its tranquil setting on the northern coast of the island and 20km from Zante Town, it’s a perfect choice for a more secluded, off-the-beaten-track Greek island destination. Whether you want to spend most of your days soaking up the sun on the beach or taking part in adrenaline-pumping watersports, Alykanas holidays are perfect for getting away from it all.
The area is also an ideal destination for cycling and hiking, with beautiful vineyards and mountain views that will take your breath away. In the evening you'll find the nightlife here more sedate than many other Greek resorts, but you'll still be able to enjoy Greek or karaoke nights and try some fantastic cocktails right by the sea.
Things to do
During your Alykanas holiday, spend some time in Zante Town, where you'll find a much bigger variety of places to eat out and shop. The island capital is also home to the beautiful Agios Markos Church, which is more than 400 years old and has the same design as Venice's St Mark's Basilica. Or head to the Byzantine Museum to learn more about Zante's history, and see the island's most treasured artworks.
Great beaches all around
Great beaches come as standard in Zante, but you’ll discover that along with golden sands and glass coloured waters, the beaches in Alykanas have superb refreshments and a famous shipwreck you can go and look at. This shipwreck happened when a smuggler’s boat got into a spot of trouble and its journey came to an early end in 1983. All of this can be enjoyed in the constant golden sunlight that Alykanas enjoys.
Take a train trip through the countryside
Alykanas can be found in a stunning area of Zante. By taking the Trainaki train ride you’ll get the chance to see the rustic countryside that surrounds Alykanas. From the colourful olive groves with their many spectacular terraces to the charming Vertzagias caves, there’s plenty to see and do when you venture a little further field.
Check out the great artwork on show at the monastery
With the picturesque beach and countryside you’ll find that they are complemented by the artwork that is on show at the monastery of St John the Baptist. Whilst there, you’ll have the chance to discover the riveting pieces of art by renowned artists such as Poulakis and Bafas.
