Why are ionic bonds stronger than covalent bonds?

Ionic bond is much stronger than covalent bond because it involves complete transfer of electrons because of which there is formation of cation and anion and there exist huge electrostatic forces of attraction. They also have high melting and boiling point which proves that the ionic bond is very strong. Covalent bond is not as strong as ionic bond.The covalent bond is formed by the sharing of electrons between the elements to become stable and to form compound.
