Ixia Beach is narrow and has a mixture of sand and pebbles. It is located 5 km south of Rhodes town. Basically this is a series of adjacent beaches rather than one single beach, most of the organized and operated by the seafront Ixia hotels. Some sections are private and others open to the public.
It is a favorite spot for surfers with two water sport centres renting boards and jet skis, it is very long and almost always windy. Along the esplanade behind the beach there are supermarkets, kiosks, bakeries, restaurants and patisseries.
When entering its waters, be careful of the big pebbles lying on the sea bed but do not stop here. If you move a little deeper, the scenery changes to sand while the waters are refreshingly cool.
