Alykes beach is very centrally located near the harbour in Kato, Paphos and has shallow waters and rock pools which makes it ideal for families with small children. The beach has plenty of sun loungers and parasols but as it is quite small and very popular, it can get crowded at peak times. There are, however, sandy terraces along the promenade which are ideal if you want to relax on a sunbed, take in the sea view, read a book, people watch or just to soak up the rays.
During the summer months, there are various water sports on offer and a lifeguard is always in attendance. If you fancy a break from the beach there are plenty of shops to explore or cafes and bars offering a good selection of snacks, meals, and drinks.
