Ixia, on the Greek island of Rhodes, was one of first purpose-built resorts to be developed on the island, back in the 1970s. Its main pull is that it gives guests the best of both worlds: proximity to Rhodes Town, which lies just a 10-minute drive away, and an out-of-town beachside location.
Present day, with its 2400 years of history, Rhodes is a city that impresses and fascinates its visitors. Its medieval aspect, fortified behind an impressive wall, merges harmoniously with the refined, cosmopolitan air of a modern resort with luxurious hotels, broad avenues, rich commercial stores and offers one of the highest developed tourism infrastructure in Greece.
Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on Rhodes. Here the dramatic natural landscape is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the more modern town. You will find the most important archaeological monuments at the acropolis, but interesting ruins are scattered at various points within the town and just outside it as well.
Today, Rhodes has to offer an enormous variety of colors and forms, activities and sightseeing. Its marvelous beaches, big modern buildings, picturesque neighborhoods and imposing medieval edifices are all swamped in greenery - in the town itself the streets are lined with trees.
This is one of the most impressive beaches on the island. Two sandy coves ending in an island that you can reach on foot or by swimming, depending on the weather and the level of the water. This is a paradise for surfers, especially in July and August. To reach Prasonisi you will have to drive all the way to the most south part of the island.
Rhodes has been blessed with many, wonderful, long stretches of beach. The nortwestern side of the island, from Rhodes town and the cosmopolitan Ixia down to Mandriko and Skala Kameirou, has large beaches developed for tourism. On the Southeastern shore are the equally developed beaches. You will also find many small sandy coves, almost hidden.
