The beach of Ixia is situated in front of the homonymous tourist resort, at the western coast of the island, to the North. It is very close to the center of the town of Rhodes, 4 kilometers at the Southwest. The facilities offered in the resort (accommodation, food and drink, shopping) are available for the visitors of the beach. The beach is pretty well organized, although not at all its length. In fact, there are not organized parts, while the organized ones are found usually in front of the hotels and in general are reserved for their guests. The beach is sandy, with pebbly parts and it is one of the favorite places for windsurfers, but also for the fans of other sea sports. The road along the coast is full of various stores, from bakeries and super markets to restaurants, taverns, cafes and bars, as well as souvenir stores and department stores. Due to the hotels, the vicinity to Rhodes and the full facilities it offers, the beach is usually very crowded. However, the southern end of the beach, on the way to Kremasti and Theologos presents a quite different image. Much less crowded, it offers more calmness and better conditions for those who prefer swimming and sunbathing without being jammed on the beach or in the sea.
