Minimalistic Post-Traditional Elegance Ixia is the suburbs of Ixia, the second-largest town on the island of Rhodes, and is located on the island’s north-western coast. Ixia was one of the first three ancient cities dating back to 1500BC. The scenery is more or less the same, wherever you may find yourself along the Ixia shoreline: the beach is highly organized. Just as at Ixia, the beaches alternate with organized public beaches, for those who love swimming, and for surfers as well as 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.
