We love playing mini-golf as a family, so were really pleased to have found this place. There are two courses of 18 holes, so we did them both on different nights & enjoyed them both. Great family time, thank you

Reviewed By Ian V - Denton, United Kingdom

Very busy and popular, the shallow depth of the sea made it quite warm for swimming further out. We went on the Porto Paradiso sun loungers with their very friendly beach bar serving good snacks, recommended.

Callinico Winery

Reviewed By dnowland_12 - Leeds, United Kingdom

Came upon this winery whilst driving up the island from Tsilivi, very nice buildings and Gardens but unfortunately there was no tour and information talk, we were left to wander around by ourselves. After looking at what was to be seen, we were offered a sample by a young lady behind the bar counter. An enjoyable respite from our journey, but a guided tour would have made the visit better.
Worth a visit if you are in the area but I would not go too far out of your way to find it.

This was so much fun! Everybody can do this, we thought it would be very difficult but the whole family was standing up and the sea had a lovely temperature so an occasional fall only added more fun. Great Irish guy who explained us how to do it and helped us with the boards. Everybody should try this on a Zakynthos holiday!

Golden Dolphin Day Cruises

Reviewed By Minou111

We have been to Alykes and done the ship wreck and round the island tours so wanted to do something different which left locally. We found a day trip to kefalonia. We had the option of going over and then a tour of the island or just going to the island and spending the day in the small village where the boat docks. We did the 2nd option which was perfect. The beach is 3 mins from the harbour, restaurants on the front offer free sun beds and parasols on the beach as long as you use their restaurant. We found an idyllic spot, bought a drink and then spent morning in the sun, lunch was a huge tuna salad at the restaurant and then after a walk around the village it was back to the beach until it was time to board the boat back to Alykes.
At no time did the restaurant come to you asking you to buy drinks, you were left alone, nor were they hounding you for payment, we paid for lunch then went up to the bar to pay for the whole bar bill in one go when it was time to leave.
The sea is warm and shallow. Lots of Greek families there so a lovely atmosphere and very little loud music from the bars so a chance to relax.
Our fellow travellers said that the bus tour was lovely but as the weather was so hot I think several had wished they had done the same as us.
If we are back in Alykes and the weather not so hot we would consider the tour of Kefalonia but then again a day on a lovely beach with superb restaurants 2 mins walk away ....
