Why not visit Ixis this Summer?
An all-in-one beachside hotspot within striking distance of medieval Rhodes Town, there’s plenty to see along this northernmost tip of the island. Palm trees and seafront pavements envelop the inviting cobalt waves, while you’ll find two temples, a monastery and incredible architecture a stone’s throw from Ixia.
Ixia beach is a luxurious hotel beach resort, among the most cosmopolitan on the island of Rhodes. It’s the ideal destination for visitors seeking top-notch accommodation near Rhodes Town.
Long, partly pebbly, partly sandy, and usually wavy, the beach is mostly preferred by windsurfers. Some parts are privately owned by the hotels in the area. There are water sports centres from where you can rent windsurfing and surfing boards, as well as jet skis. Basically Ixia is a series of adjacent beaches rather than one single beach, most of them organised and operated by the seafront hotels. Some sections are public and others are private.
The large number and variety of hotels is also the first thing will catch your eye, extending as far as you can see, along and all the Sun-baked beach enthusiasts soaking up the sun at the pools or the beach, who throw themselves into all sorts of activities – water sports, shopping, tasting some of the specialties offered by the restaurants, which are constantly opening up along the main Ixia avenue, moving away from the rationale that was the norm until recently, which was to serve ‘a bit of everything’.
All along the shoreline and other streets parallel to it, you will also find small commercial centres with anything you need. If all the above seems a bit too touristy for your taste, then carry on to the end of the beach (on the way to Kremasti village). If you are not actually staying here, ancient Ialysos, one of the most important archaeological sites on the island located on the hill of Filerimos, would probably be the most important reason for visiting this area.
Whatever takes your fancy, day trips can include:
- Catamaran Cruises
- Hop on/Hop off sightseeing bus
- Scuba Diving
- Wine Tasting
Fancy some five star?
We recommend: Atrium Platinum Luxury Resort & Spa, part of the Jet 2 Holidays Luxe Collection. (This collection features 4 and 5 star properties in exclusive locations. You’ll also appreciate their stylish decor, great service and fine dining restaurants.)
Modern design, sea views, luxury furnishings… need we say more? If that’s not a great start enough, you’ll be plotted close to the beach, with excellent board options and two outdoor pools – one’s even lagoon-style. The bright rooms and suites will keep you well rested, while five restaurants showcase cuisine from Greece, Thailand and beyond. Fancy a tipple in the sun? Atrium Platinum’s two bars will be calling your name. You can’t beat exploring locally on holiday, so how about visiting Rhodes Town? Afterwards, sink into a massage, hit the gym or take the youngsters to the kids’ playground on-site.
