Gazing across Ixia’s azure waters, it’s easy to forget this easy-going resort is just 3 kilometres from bustling Rhodes Town. Its close proximity to the island’s central hub is one of the many reasons why visitors love coming on Ixia holidays, although with great food and entertainment right on the beach, you may find you never make it that far.

Holidays to Ixia are a cultural and culinary treat – enjoy seafood platters and salads dressed in high-quality olive oil from just a few miles away, accompanied by a glass of ouzo if you’re feeling adventurous. Be sure to leave time to visit the ancient temple ruins in neighbouring Triandam, which are interwoven with centuries of myth and legend. And the bright lights of Rhodes Town are just a 10-minute bus ride away, offering a range of retail delights from Turkish rugs to locally made ceramics.
