White beaches, sea turtles and partying around the clock make Zakynthos a favourite holiday destination
Alykanas is a well-developed resort, mainly for those who seek relaxing, quiet vacations.
“Elpida” hotel is situated in a very privileged location, because it’s a very short distance from the beach and the center of the resort.
Alykanas beach is a natural extension of Alykes beach. Wide, sandy and always clean, the beach is ideal for children and offers very easy access, since every road of the area leads to some part of it.
There are water-sports facilities at Alykanas because the northern beaches of the island are not a reproduction site of the Caretta-caretta sea turtle. Power boats are allowed, too.
Alykanas and Alykes have bus service to Zakynthos town and other parts of the island several times a day, but you may also easily rent a car, motorbike or bicycle.
There are quite a few restaurants in the area, offering a wide selection of tastes from the greek and international cuisine.
There are also many small taverns, where you may enjoy a traditionally prepared meal. Many of them offer live music and greek dancing shows.
Numerous bars, cafeterias and nightclubs complete the cosmopolitan picture of the area.
At the center of nearby Alykes resort there is a marketplace offering from bread and pastries to jewelry.
During the summer months, the mild Mediterranean climate offers fresh evenings due to the sea breeze and northerly winds.
There are several sight-seeings nearby and you can easily explore them. The famous “shipwreck” beach, the blue caves, and the “Xygia” beach with sulphurous baths.
