Sun, Surf and Culture
Along the town’s scenic two-kilometre shingle beach is a promenade that meanders along the Aegean coastline. The beautiful promenade also links Ixia with Rhodes Town. With views of Turkish mainland, the resort’s beaches and promenade are perfect spots to watch spectacular sunsets. A great place to unwind with lively bars and bustling shops, the promenade comes to life as the sun goes down. In addition to enjoying the warm waters and attractive beach, strong winds and large waves make Ixia a perfect spot for windsurfing, parasailing and sailing. Convenient rental shops right on the beach also make enjoying watersports in Ixia easy.
