Alkes with its three kilometer golden, sandy stretch of beach that sweeps round to its neighboring resort Alykanas, Alykes has been named one of the best to be found North of the island
A perfect getaway for families with its shallow waters, but also to surfers with the northerly winds creating some fantastic waves. The resort caters well for all tourists, with a small but fantastic selection of restaurants and tavernas serving up delicious, traditional Greek dishes, and international foods all day.
From motorbike rentals to whizz about through the orchards and vineyards during the day, to sipping on icy cocktails as the sun sets at the end; you will always find something to do on this beautiful island. Salt flats lie not far from the centre, along the Skourtis River, which separates Alykes and Alykanas; here you can take a stroll and spot the wildlife habitats, home to geckos and owls, and enjoy the peaceful vibes.
Spend an evening checking out the most photographed spot in Greece, Smugglers Cove. Specifically great for shallow swimming, and be sure not to miss the Blue Caves which shimmers the water, and gives you the possibility of spotting a dolphin.
A relaxed charm makes for a perfect place to stay, with a handful of highly rated hotels and holiday lets on offer, all within walking distance to the beach and selection of shops. There is also a camping ground situated just a few meters from the beach.
