Ixia, adjoining Rhodes’ Old Town to the west, is one of the island’s most laidback resorts. Ixia holidays offer sun, sea and sand galore – plus plenty of chances to explore Rhodes’ historic highlights.

Ixia sits at the northeastern tip of Rhodes, the largest island in the Dodecanese. It’s just a ten-minute drive from the heart of the Old Town and fringed by a long, mostly pebbly beach. If you want to experience the best the Greek Islands have to offer, holidays to Ixia are the perfect choice. There’s a wide choice of all-inclusive hotels, kid-friendly activities and a slew of ancient sites and picturesque villages to visit just inland.

Nature in Ixia

Ixia might be a modern, purpose-built resort, but nature is in evidence everywhere on Rhodes. With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, wildflowers and wildlife flourish. Venture away from your hotel and you might spot butterflies, wild horses or even fallow deer.

Your guide to Ixia holidays

Beaches near Ixia

Beaches near Ixia

As well as Ixia’s own beach, partly public and partly covered with rows of sunbeds, there are a handful of other excellent beaches around Rhodes’ northeast tip.

  • You’ll almost certainly head into Rhodes Old Town on Ixia holidays. Stop for a dip at the pebbly Elli Beach, the closest to the heart of town.
  • Ialysos Beach is the first beach you reach heading west from Ixia. It’s similarly windy and pebbly, with great surfing for beginners and several surf schools.
  • If you’re looking for a good snorkelling spot, spend the afternoon at Kallithea Beach, a rocky bay with a small sweep of sunbeds and a café.
  • You’ll find Rhodes’ wildest nightlife in Faliraki, a fifteen-minute drive or taxi from Ixia. Come to start a night out with cocktails on the wide, sandy beach.
  • Anthony Quinn Bay, just to the south of Faliraki, is one of Rhodes’ most beautiful bays. This rocky cove is named after the actor Anthony Quinn, who swam in the aquamarine waters here while filming on the island.
Best beaches for day trips

Best beaches for day trips

Rhodes is a small island so it’s easy to also explore further-flung beaches on holidays in Ixia.

  • Tsambika beach, set below a monastery of the same name, is one of Rhodes’ most gorgeous sandy beaches. The water is calm and shallow here, making it a particularly good choice for families.
  • The shimmering waters off Gennadi Beach are calm for swimming during the day, while beach parties keep things lively well into the night back onshore.
  • St Paul’s Bay is almost entirely enclosed by rocky walls, its small sandy beach protected from the wind and waves. This is as scenic as swimming spots come in the Greek Islands.
  • More tempted by total isolation? Make tracks for Mavros Kavos. This hidden beach is a local favourite, backed by dunes and free from development.
  • Prasonisi, a spit connecting a tiny headland to the island’s southern tip, is a pro kitesurfers’ playground and where the Aegean and the Mediterranean meet.
