One of the best things about a holiday in Ixia is the sunset. After a day of swimming and sunbathing down at the beautiful sandy beach, there’s simply nothing better than retreating to your hotel balcony, or perhaps grabbing a drink in one of the beachfront bars, and watching the sun set over the Aegean Sea.
The beach itself can get a little windy during the summer months, and as a result this has become a popular destination for both surfing and sailing. You’ll find a great selection of water sports on offer when you come on holiday to Ixia, including windsurfing, kite-boarding, and everything in between!
The best place to head for a taste of the local culture is Main Avenue. There is a wide selection of shops and mini-markets here, the perfect place to pick up provisions, or even a souvenir from your holiday in Ixia. You’ll also be able to find a large number of restaurants around this central district. As well as a range of venues serving more international cuisine, there are plenty of traditional Greek-style tavernas here, which specialise in classic dishes such as seafood, moussaka and crisp Greek salads. Visitors will also have the chance to try some of the local wine.
If you’re interested in uncovering some local history during your holiday in Ixia, then head for the archaeological sites on the nearby hill of Filerimos. This makes for a fascinating day out, and here you’ll be able to admire ancient wonders such as the remains of the Temple of Zeus and Athena Poliada, and the stunning 14th century Church of the Knights.
