Things to do in Ixia
Taking a holiday in Ixia truly does give you the best of both worlds. You’ll have every amenity you’ll need in the laid-back, beachside resort, as well as staying a stone’s throw away from cultural and historical hot-spots like the quintessentially Grecian village of Lalysos, or the island’s famous, UNESCO-acredited Old Town. Its name is no exaggeration, either: this is the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe. Here, you’ll find shops and markets touting traditional Grecian food and linen lining ancient cobbled streets, museums to suit the taste and era of every history-buff, and picturesque domed roofs that give the town it’s irresistible Grecian atmosphere and famous aesthetic. Spot the Temple of Venus and amble through the Street of the Knights before retiring from the Old Town’s bustle and unwinding back in mellow Ixia.
Is one Greek island ever enough? Ixia also makes for the perfect jumping-off point from which to hop through some of the arpeggio’s finest offerings. Take a boat to gorgeous Symi, or even Kos, to make the most of your Grecian holiday.
Best beaches in Ixia
There’s a reason the Mediterranean Sea is one of the most popular in the world, and a holiday in Ixia will certainly show you why. The resort’s long expanse of shingled shore-line is ideal for lazy days spent soaking up the sun, moving only to take a refreshing dip in clear, emerald waters, or to head for a nearby beach bar and tropical cocktail. While some of the beach is used by hotels or has umbrellas for hire, there are private areas, too, as well as plenty of opportunity to learn water-sports like jet-skiing and kite-surfing with local professionals.
It’s also worth noting that the draw of Ixia’s bay doesn’t dim when the sun does: enjoy spectacular sunsets which throw the bay into pink, gold, and orange light, or walk its moonlit silver shores for a cool end to what is sure to be a hot day.

Your Ixia questions answered
Yes, you can. There is a beachside walkway you can use, which eventually turns into a rough, hilly path. But if you’re able to do it, you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views.
