northwest tip of Rhodes, Ixia is a rather
small resort close to Rhodes Town.
Ixia has a long beach with a mixture of sand
and pebbles. The water is crystal clear with
a pebbly shoreline.
The beach is divided into many sections,
most of them organized and operated by the
large seafront hotels. However, you will
also find public sections with sunbeds and
umbrellas for hire.
The bay of Ixia often has moderate winds
making it popular with windsurfers and
Ixia’s pebble and shingle beach is rather
unsuitable for children.
The main watersports in Ixia are
windsurfing, kitesurfing and jet-skiing.
There are two water sports centres providing
windsurfing and kitesurfing equipment as
well as jet-skis.

restaurants and bars.
Ixia was one of first purpose-built resorts
to be developed in Rhodes. It is a rather
quiet family holiday destination with many
top hotels. Many of the hotels are set in
landscaped gardens equipped with large
swimmingpools and sunbeds.

choose from. Nightlife is made up of several
bars and two nightclubs.

Rhodes, Rhodes Town. Here you can explore
