Zante Dolphin Studios and Apartments

There’s a peaceful and relaxing vibe at the Zante Dolphin Studios and Apartments. You can knock up meals in your own kitchenette, but there’s also a snack bar and the occasional barbecue.

The hotel’s sun terrace is surrounded by pines that add a sense of privacy. A big pool is sunk into the terrace in the middle, with a raised section for little paddlers. If you want to get away from the heat for a little bit, there’s also a games room with a pool table, lounge area and a big-screen TV.

Overview of Alykes

Zante’s stunning scenery is what draws holidaymakers to its shores. It was once nicknamed ‘the flower of the east’ by the Venetians, and it’s just as beautiful today as it was back then.

On a holiday to Zante, you can expect to encounter untouched beaches and stunning mountain ranges that invite you to explore. As Zante’s only a small island, you’ll find it easy to do so. From the Zante Dolphin Studios and Apartments, you can easily reach the resorts on Zante’s northern coastline, but you can also jump on a boat and head to the island’s more developed southern shores.

Things to do in Zante

With a stay at the Zante Dolphin Studios and Apartments, you get the best of both worlds. It’s in a pretty and peaceful part of Alykes, but you’re within easy reach of the tavernas and bars.

It’s a 10-minute walk to the seaside, which is home to one of the best beaches on the island. The resort is less developed than some of the places on the island’s south coast, so it’s largely traditional and home to plenty of bars and tavernas.

The beach is also the perfect place to be if you want to explore. You can catch a boat cruise or head inland on a jeep safari. When you visit the picturesque island of Zante, you’ll have plenty of chance to explore a cinematic paradise.

Resort Summary

The unspoilt village of Alykes, while less developed than neighbouring Laganas and Tsilivi, is bursting with charm and is popular with families and couples looking for some down-time from modern life. From the old stone bridge over the Skourtis River to the wildlife-filled salt flats, Alykes has managed to retain its Greek authenticity.

There are plenty of activities on offer – including boat excursions and watersports – and a picturesque beach where you can spend your days lounging in the Mediterranean sun. Everything you need is within walking distance including supermarkets, gift shops and a fantastic array of outdoor dining establishments. The resort enjoys a wonderful selection of traditional tavernas too, where you’ll find freshly prepared, homemade local dishes, and fresh seafood straight out of the ocean. Centred around the church square in Katastari, a 20-minute walk from Alykes, you’ll find street markets selling local produce and freshly cooked souvlaki.

Every July, a three-day festival is organised in the area to celebrate the arts from all over Greece and its European neighbours. Local performances include musical concerts, operas, traditional Greek plays and dance.
