The beach is sandy and partly pebbly, very well organized in its major part. The sea is clean and crystal clear, as the rest of the beaches of the northwestern coast. Once relaxing on the sun beds, at the shadow of the multi-colored umbrellas, you will have a nice view of the opposite coast of Asia Minor. The beach also offers many alternatives for sea sports at all its length. But the sport dominating here is the windsurfing. The beach is so popular and so favorite to windsurfers that the locals advertise Ialyssos as “the capital city of windsurfing”. And they are pretty right, as every year several local, Panhellenic and European Champions of windsurfing are organized here. Moreover, in 2007 the World Champion of Windsurfing has been organized in Ialyssos.
Health services are available in the resort (a local Medical Center and a pharmacy), where you will also find a Police Station and a Post Office.
Access to the beach from the town of Rhodes is very easy by public buses with frequent service, by taxi (a taxi station is also available at the settlement), as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes.
