Beautiful beach with shallow water for a long way out, no rubbish about and lots of beach bars that have sun loungers for hire.

At the North East of the island of Zakynthos lies the sleepy, resort of Alykes. With probably one of the best sandy beaches in Greece, Alykes beach. Backing onto the beach is the Asterias taverna, established for 50 years and traditionally Greek to its core. On the beach here, are the blue and white umbrellas and sunbeds serviced by the eversmiling, multi- lingual Vladimir. With great disabled access and free carparking, toilets for all a terrace restaurant and bar open all day everyday, Vlad supplies a 'service to sunbed' for his clients, many of whom return year after year just to see him tirelessly patrolling his patch, chatting and providing a first class service to his guests.

Every time I visit Alykes I spend every day on the the lovely beach at the Asteria Taverna.
The reason - the best beach service ever provided be the one and only Vladi.
All Vladi's visitors (long-standing or new) are greeted with a big smile, a great sense of humour and looked after and treated as good friends.
So, to put the icing on the cake of a great holiday in Alykes, go and see Vladi, he never fails to deliver.

The beach itself is nothing that special, as its stoney and fairly small but its easily accessible, close to everything and the views are to die for. The best part though is the sea, which is not only very warm, but also not very deep so ideal for people who are poor swimmers (like me) and young kids.

Alykes beach is absolutely brilliant. There are busy sections with sunbeds and quieter sections without. As you walk out of town along the beach, eventually it gets narrow and stony. But the sandy section is huge. The water is very shallow and warm, it is crystal clear and there are no rocks to tread on, one of my favourite beaches ever.

We stayed at the beautiful alykes for 2 weeks , everyday we spent on the beach outside the asteria with the man himself the one and only fantastic Vlad. He really does go out of his way to help in anyway possible, the place would not be the same without him.
We also ate at the asteria for lunch regularly and not to be disappointed food excellent and a nice Cole beer to wash it down with
