Windsurfing in Ixia - Rhodes

Spot type: windsurfing only

Spot

Ixia is the northernmost of the surf spots on Rhodes. The beach of Ixia is long, 20 m wide and often crowded. It consists of gravel and sand. There are sun beds and parasols. The beach is too narrow but also too crowded for the launching and landing of kites.

The predominant wind direction is side-onshore. In the morning, the wind is weaker, making the conditions suitable for beginners. In the afternoon, the wind speed is increased by thermal effects. During the summer, it reaches 4 to 6 Bft almost every day. Near the shore, you can find a narrow zone of shallow water. There are 3 surf centers in Ixia.

Ixia is a town newly built for tourism. Accordingly, there is a wide range of hotels, sports facilities, night clubs, etc. For those who love the older Greek architecture, Rhodes City is just 5 km away. You can reach a large number of restaurants, bars and clubs within a few minutes.
