There are plenty of exciting activities to enjoy during the day, such as windsurfing opportunities or the chance to hire a dinghy and gain a slightly different perspective of the shoreline. Visitors to the beaches – which are a mix of sandy and pebbled – can swim in the sea, but it can be a little rough so it is not ideal for young children. Most hotels and resorts have their own swimming pools, however, so there are still opportunities for swimming and sunbathing.
As well as sporty activity to pass the time of day, shopping in Ixia is another popular pastime for tourists, as is the range of local cuisine that can be found in the restaurants. As well as the hotels, there is a selection of self-catered accommodation for those who want to try and cook up their own Greek feast. As with most Greek islands, Rhodes has its fair share of intriguing archaeological sites, such as the remains of the temple of Zeus on the hill of Filerimos. Package holidays in Ixia can cater to the needs of most tourists, whether it is the culture that they are travelling for, or the sun, sand and sea.
The hotels in the resort are fairly self-contained, and much of the night-time entertainment takes place in the hotels themselves. However, there are opportunities to venture further into the town to find the pubs and bars, but for a more bustling nightlife, visitors can head into Rhodes Town, 5km from Ixia.
