A few words about Alikes..
Taking a tour of the southeastern side of the island, along the rocky extent of Aliki, constitutes an exceptional experience for any visitor. Consisting of two bays that were considered a commercial centre in antiquity, Aliki slowly unfolds its natural beauty resembling a work of art.
The west bay with its many traditional tavernas makes this ideal for seafood lovers. The visitor can enjoy the tranquility of this place and spend time relaxing and gazing at the crystal clear waters that highlight the harmony of man with nature. Adjacent is the peninsula, which is inextricably related to history as in antiquity along with the bays it composed a natural port. During ancient Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine times, trade flourished in the area due to the export of the precious white Thassian marble, famous all over the then known world. It is no wonder that this place lures visitors into a magic journey of history and beauty.
The ancient marble quarry dating back to the 7th century BC and the two Early Christian Basilicas are significant archeological finds on the edge of the peninsula. Visitors can walk along the stone dams on the surface of the sea. This is when images of another era succeed each other right in front of your eyes causing spontaneous sighs.
The most significant archeological find was the statue of Kouros in 1896, which was transferred to the Museum of Istanbul.
Aliki gives birth to fascinating images bringing together water, earth and sky. History along with beauty floats on its tranquil waters. The visitors dazzled by its beauty await the sunset to conclude a wonderful day.
