Ixia is one of the most popular and cosmopolitan resorts of Rhodes. It is a newly built settlement at a distance of approximately 4 km from the town of Rodos. It is characterized for the high density of hotel facilities, which provide a wide array of services, from sports facilities and pools to bars and discotheques.

Endless blue

At the endless crowded beach of Ixia (620m), with its crystal clear waters and golden sand, visitors can enjoy a swim and get involved with sports such as windsurfing (here the wind is strong enough, suitable for windsurfing lovers) and diving (the beauty of the seabed excites all divers). It is a lively beach, which, thanks to its efficient organization, offers plenty of options. However, if you seek quietness, you can move towards the other end of the beach, on the way to the Kremasti and the Theologos, where the atmosphere is quite different and does not resemble the image of a busy tourist resort at all. it is also ideal for families with children.

Facing the sunset

Ixia is the perfect place for relaxation and a settlement with one of the most famous sunsets. This is why many couples decide to get married here. The combination of deep blue of the sea meeting the orange hues of the sunset create the perfect setting for the most important day of your life.

'Melekouni' like honey

Are you hungry or thirsty? Don't worry! In Ixia you can find over 25 restaurants and many all-day bars where you can enjoy local delicacies, such as garlic bread and melekouni (a dessert based on honey) or a breezy drink.
