Distance from Rhodes City: 4Km Add your review about Ixia

The first thing that will catch your eye is the large number and variety of hotels extending as far as your eye can see, and all the Sun-baked tourists soaking up the sun at the poolside or the beach, who throw themselves into all sorts of activities - water sports, shopping, tasting some of the specialties offered by the restaurants, which are constantly opening up along the main avenue, moving away from the rationale that was the norm until recently, which was to serve 'a bit of everything'. All along the shoreline and other streets parallel to it, you will find a multitude of hotels and small commercial centers with anything you need. If all the above seems a bit too touristy for your taste, then carry on to the end of the beach (on the way to Kremasti).

If you are not actually staying here, ancient Ialysos, one of the most important archaeological sites on the island located on the hill of Filerimos, would probably be the most important reason for visiting this area. This is where you can find the remains of the temple of Zeus and Athena Polias, as well as the remnants of the Byzantine fortifications, the 14th century church of the Knights (the Virgin Mary of Filerimos was worshiped by both the Orthodox and the Catholic faith) and the Via Dolorsa (Calvary) a cypress tree lined path featuring altars dedicated on the twelve stances of Jesus’ martyrdom and culminating to a gigantic cross, overlooking the plain and a major part of central Rhodes, with bird-eye’s views on the East and West coast.
