It's not really sensible to answer this question because "metal" is a broad term. It's like asking are flowers red? Some are red, but not all. Generally metals have high melting and boiling points. Very few metals are liquid at or near room temperature, and some have very high boiling points. If you compare elemental metals with e.g. noble gases then clearly the metals have, in comparison, high boiling points. On the other hand some metals have lower boiling points than some ceramics.

Why do ionic crystals have high melting points and high boiling points?

Ionic compounds are basically the combination of a metal and a non-metal. However, its high melting points and boiling points are part of the physical properties of ionic compounds, and high heat is usually required to break the bonds of ionic compounds. The ions which are held together by strong electrostatic force of attraction may results in high melting point and boiling point.
