Alykanas Resort

Resorts in Zante


Getting to Alykanas:

Alykanas and Alykes are the only main resorts on Zante that have a significant transfer distance. Alykanas is approximately 17 km and 26 minutes away from the Airport and the taxi fare is 28 euros. A shared shuttle bus service costs from 12 euros each so it's only worth it if you're a solo travel. If you're looking to save some money then sharing a taxi with another couple is the best option. Official taxis are licensed to carry 4 passengers and their luggage. If you take the free transfer coach with your tour operator you should go direct to the resort because of the distance, but you can still end up waiting a long time for another flight to arrive at the Airport so they can fill the coach.

Alykanas Summary:

Alykes and Alykanes are less developed than the resorts in the south, but they too have grown-up recently and this year you will you find karaoke bars for the first time which you will either love or hate. It's still much quieter than resorts like Tsilivi and Laganas, and will probably suit more people now than previously. Horse and carriages have replaced taxis and will provide free transport to local restaurants. The beaches are excellent, long and sandy and very safe for children. It is still a very relaxing and friendly place but if peace and quiet is your priority then why not look at Amoudi a couple of kms south of Alykanas. No British tour operator covers this resort and there have been few changes in recent years. If you get up early you can even have the beach completely to yourself.
