Holidays to Ixia, Rhodes

Overview

Conveniently located just 10 minutes’ drive from Rhodes Town, Ixia is one of Rhodes’ first resorts purpose-built for tourists, and has plenty of 4 and 5-star accommodation for those wishing to treat themselves on their Greek holiday. The luxurious hotels give the resort a peaceful, ‘away from the crowds’ feel, and the nearby busy city seems a world away. People come here for a relaxing beach holiday, and it’s particularly popular with families.

Things to Do

Ixia’s main attraction for tourists is its beautiful luxury hotels many of which are surrounded by large, spacious gardens and have their own sunbed-lined swimming pools to lounge by. The beach is pebbly and has strong breezes, which draws windsurfers and parasailers itching to take advantage of the good winds and waves. The seafront promenade is lined with shops and restaurants, and from a beachside bar you can enjoy Ixia’s beautiful sunsets.

Day Trips

Rhodes Old Town is an unmissable day trip, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with medieval walls, winding cobbled streets and beautiful buildings. Visit the 14th century Palace, explore the Archaeological Museum, or sit with a drink at Mandraki Harbour. From here you can take boat trips to Symi Island or even Marmaris in Turkey! You may also want to climb nearby Mount Filerimos to see the ruins of an ancient Roman temple and panoramic island views.

Family Fun

Faliraki Water Park is a fantastic day out for the whole family, with something to suit children of all ages! Faliraki has one of the largest water parks in Europe, so there are tons of slides to choose from as well as a lazy river, a wave pool and funfair attractions. Kids will also love the Valley of the Butterflies, a beautiful nature reserve inhabited by thousands of tiger moths.
