Things to do in Ialyssos
Life in Ialyssos is centred on the long, long beach. There are loads of facilities here, including plenty of water sports, particularly windsurfing and kite-surfing. The town dates back thousands of years and you can wander around the atmospheric ruins of ancient Ialyssos on the top of Mount Filerimos, or linger over coffee in one of the cafés in the traditional village. Culture buffs will enjoy a visit to nearby Rhodes Town, which UNESCO has designated a World Heritage Site for its perfectly preserved historic centre. Inland, you can visit the enchanting Butterfly Valley or hike and bike across mountain peaks.
The town’s 3-kilometre-long beach is a gorgeous stretch of sand and shingle, which extends into the neighbouring resort of Kremasti and beyond for several kilometres. Some of the hotels have private beaches, but there are plenty of public stretches too. It’s got all the amenities you could ever need, from lounger rental to life guard posts. The northern coast of Rhodes is known for its fantastic windsurfing and kite-surfing, and there are lots of places to rent equipment or even take a course. The wind tends to pick up in the late afternoon, when the water can get choppy, but the beach remains a hugely popular family-favourite.
