Ixia Rhodes was one of the first man made holiday resorts in Rhodes and is very popular (also known for Ixia nightlife). Holidaymaker's from all around the world prefer holidays to Ixia, mainly for its good position near the airport and Rhodes town but also for people who enjoy surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing. For sure there are plenty of things to do in Ixia Rhodes.
Ixia’s 2-kilometre shingle beach is washed by warm blue waters, and looks out towards the Turkish mainland. The beach is a really popular spot for watersports, especially windsurfing, parasailing and yachting, thanks to the easterly sea breeze – the waves can really pick up in the afternoon. There are private sections where you can hire a parasol and a sunbed. And along the edge of the sand, you’ve got bars serving drinks and snacks.
From Ixia to Rhodes town
Rhodes Town, the island’s historical capital city, is a 10-minute bus ride away. The old town appeals to history buffs, culture vultures and shopaholics thanks to its line-up of museums and scenic squares, plus its Turkish Quarter that’s brimming with shops. And don’t miss the magnificent Street of Knights where the Crusaders set up shop in the Middle Ages.
Ixia Rhodes things to do
If you want to keep the kids entertained most hotels run kids clubs throughout the day, leaving you free to explore the island. The town of Ixia doesn't have much to do itself, with only a few souvenir shops and local supermarkets so your best hiring a car or catching the local bus to Rhodes Town which is only 3km away.
If you want to explore further afield you can book boat trips from Rhodes town to visit the island of Symi on a day trip or even to Turkey. Landing in Turkey you are in the resort of Marmaris and can explore the many Bazaars and market stalls here and come with a bargain or two. Make sure you don’t miss the last boat though or you will be stuck in Marmaris for the night.
Wondering about Ixia nightlife? There are a handful of pubs in Ixia, where you will find the locals very friendly and inviting, and a good tip for any visitor to Rhodes, is that the more times you return to the bar, and stay in a bar the more freebies you are likely to get.

A word of warning is do not count on these freebies and the like or too expect them and whatever you receive is from the heart.
