Ixia Holidays | Cheap Holidays to Ixia 2017


All Inclusive holiday to Ixia

The town of Ixia is just three miles (5km) from Rhodes Town is the developed resort of Ixia with a wide range of accommodation to suit most holidaymakers' tastes. The west coast receives a constant summer breeze, which tempers the heat, and provides excellent conditions for windsurfing.

The shingle beach follows the curve of the main road with most of the tourist accommodation along the road; bathers should take care, as the waves can be a little rough. Most hotels have pools and deckchairs for those who prefer not to brave the sea.

Ixia is ideal for family holidays or an older clientele; there are only a few pubs and bars that close at midnight, but most hotels provide family entertainment programmes, and while there aren't many attractions in Ixia itself, its proximity to other resorts like Falariki and Rhodes Town means that all the amenities of a larger town are only a short taxi ride away.

Ixia is a resort town and as such has all the amenities visitors could desire, including some decent shopping opportunities. The esplanade behind the beach front is full of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, cafes and bars and this is a good street to wander looking for local food and souvenirs. If you are self-catering you shouldn't struggle to find reasonably priced groceries. As it is generally quite 'touristy' those looking to experience authentic Rhodes markets and shopping may have to travel a little further afield to one of the more traditional villages.

There are loads of restaurants, bars and cafes in Ixia - the main avenue in particular is full of places to eat out. The restaurants used to serve 'a bit of everything' in true resort style to try and accommodate tourist tastes and foreign preferences but increasingly eateries are starting to specialise in certain kinds of food, ranging from traditional Greek meals to pizza or Chinese food, and everything in between.

Ixia is not known for its nightlife and is ideal for holidaymakers who want to enjoy a quiet and relaxing beach break. However, for those who do want to party Rhodes Town and Faliraki - one of the most famous resorts for those who get feisty after dark - are very close by and easily visited.

The most impressive archaeological site near Ixia is the hill of Filerimos, where visitors can explore the remains of the Temple of Zeus and Athena Poliada, as well as the Byzantine fortifications, a 14th-century church and several other shrines. For those who want to head out on excursions Rhodes is full of exciting and fascinating places to visit.

Ixia boasts a series of adjacent beaches which are attractive but not ideal for swimming. They compensate for this by being a favourite with windsurfers and other watersports fanatics with whom the resort is popular. Some of the beaches are private and reserved for hotel guests but others are open to the public.

Rhodes Sightseeing

While the most popular 'modern' attractions on Rhodes are its beautiful beaches, this Mediterranean island's rich past has laden it with a wealth of historic architectural, cultural and religious sites that must be explored. Wander the charming streets of the Old Town and experience day-to-day life, little changed for centuries, or climb Filerimos Hill to visit the medieval ruins. There are interesting castles at Kastellos and Monolithos, and don't miss the Acropolis of Rhodes, the ancient settlement's terraced ruins dating from 200 BC.

If you want to spend your time at the beach though, Rhodes has a number of good ones where visitors can sun themselves or enjoy watersports like scuba diving and surfing, including resorts like Rhodes Town, Lindos, Faliraki and Ixia. There are also smaller and quieter beaches at Ladiko and Afandou, and nude sunbathing is allowed at Tsambika.

If you are travelling with kids Rhodes is a great island to explore as children enjoy the beaches as well as a number of other natural and scenic attractions. The Valley of the Butterflies has kids searching the skies to see the diversely coloured creatures in flight, while the local aquarium has them entranced by the wonders of the ocean. The Faliraki Water Park will also keep children entertained for hours.

Ixia Climate

The Rhodes climate ensures hot, dry weather in summer and mild winters. Temperatures in July and August, the hottest months and peak tourist season, range from 82ºF (28ºC) during the day to 72ºF (22ºC) at night, which is a bit cooler than some of the Greek islands, although still quite hot enough! Rainfall is almost non-existent in summer but showers can be expected between October and March. Despite the heat being somewhat oppressive by some standards summer remains the most popular time to visit Rhodes and during June, July and August the island is packed full of tourists with prices escalating accordingly. The lure of summer in Greece is obvious but for those who would prefer not to get caught in the crowds the best time to visit is in spring or autumn. Late spring, May, is particularly lovely on the islands with most of the benefits of summer and fewer disadvantages; by May the sea is getting warm, there are fewer people, and Rhodes is as lush as it gets. Early autumn, September, is also a great time to visit Rhodes because it is warm without being swelteringly hot, the water is almost as balmy as during summer, and most of the tourists have left.
