Ialissos, Overall a good family destination

Written by Bryan
We stayed in Ialissos. If I were on my honeymoon or single, I would choose another island (or perhaps I would choose another part of Rhodes), but for a family with small children, or a wind/kite surfer, or people who don't want to be in a total party spot, Ialissos works just fine.

Ixia Beach

You're unlikely to pick Ixia for a swim unless you're actually staying at one of the hotels nearby or you're looking for waves. Basically this is a series of adjacent beaches rather than one single beach, most of them organised and operated by the seafront hotels. Some sections are private others are open to the public. The beaches are narrow and have a mixture of sand and pebbles, you're likely to find seaweed, too, as it's usually quite windy here. It's a favourite spot for surfers with two water sports centres renting boards and jet-skis. Along the esplanade behind the beach there are supermarkets, kiosks, bakeries, patisseries and restaurants. (4 km from Rhodes town)
