Ialyssos (Ialissos)

Distance from Rhodes City: 8Km Add your review about Ialyssos (Ialissos)

The scenery is more or less the same, wherever you may find yourself along the Ialysos shoreline: the heach is highly organized with the gardens and swimming pool just behind and at the rear the multi-storey hotels with their tennis courts and other facilities. Just as at Ixia, the hotel beaches alternate with organized public beaches, used mainly by visitors from those local hotels that do not have their own private beach. It is an ideal place for those who love active swimming as well as for surfers, since there is often a good wind. Equipment for hire is available. There are kiosks, mini-markets, fast food outlets, cafes and restaurants just a short distance away.

Ialysos is the second-largest town on the island of Rhodes, located on the island's north-western coast. Ialysos was one of the first three ancient cities dating back to 1500BC. Here you will find one of the most important archaeological sites on the island on the hill of Filerimos, featuring the remains of the temple of Zeus and Athena, the remnants of the Byzantine fortifications, the 14th century church of the Knights of St. John and the 13 stops Jesus took to the road of Calvery-a path of Cypress trees with impressive shrines on both sides. There is a 70m high cross at the end of the path, with a steep stairwell leading to the top - needless to say the views from this vantage point are second to none!
