Alyko is a beautiful area that consists of a few coves. The south and biggest cove (landmarked by Saint George chapel -on the right side as we approach the beach) is the most popular and best with fine and whitish sand and azure waters. The whole area is ideal for snorkeling. In Alyko there is a cedar trees forest and a small pier where sometimes day cruise small boats stop over.
