Alykes beach (Kavos)

It is situated in the east, southeast part of the bay of Karystos, about 5.5 km from the town centre.

The area is called Alykes, or Kavos.

The beach faces southeast and its western extremity is sheltered from the north winds.

There is a cantina, sunloungers and umbrellas.

The beach is about 450m long.

It is mainly a sandy beach with some pebbly areas. Due to its extensive length, the seabed is not uniform. The water is largely shallow and sandy and at the edges there are rocky formations that stretch back to the shore.

This is a beach frequented by all age groups.

The variation of sand and rock continues further off the shore, making the water ideal for snorkelling and amateur fishing. It is generally a good beach for water sports.

It is easily accessible via the asphalted road that comes from Karystos.

Starting from Karystos we head east and after the village of Aetos we take the right hand turn and follow the coastal road.

At the west extremity of the beach there are high rocks that offer natural shade and shelter from the sun.
