Anthony Quinn Bay, Rhodes
The beach at Anthony Quinn bay is one of the most beautiful and famous beaches on Rhodes. The waters owe their deep emerald colour to the lush green vegetation which surrounds the beach.
Natural stone surfaces ideal for reclining under the sun, pine trees reaching down to the water’s edge, emerald green water – Anthony Quinn certainly showed impeccable taste when he fell in love with its miniature bay. The beach is known today by the actor’s name since he bought this part of the island when filming “The Guns of Navarone” here.
Anthony Quinn Bay is situated on the east coast of Rhodes, about four kilometres south of Faliraki. The waters owe their deep emerald colour to the lush green vegetation which surrounds the beach. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on Rhodes.
It’s mostly popular with young people – especially Italians – since the sharp rocks both in and out of the water are not ideal for families with young children or elderly people. Because of it’s small size, the beach gets fairly crowded during July and August.
The finest spot is the rock right in the centre of the beach, with room for just a few sun beds.
At the top of the rocks you will find a Cocktail bar restaurant. The crystal clear water and gorgeous underwater scenery also makes the beach one of the best areas in Rhodes for snorkeling.
Ladiko beach offers fine sand, small rocks, sun beds, umbrellas, tree-clad hills all around, emerald water, showers and a taverna. It is very popular, especially in August. Ladiko beach is just a tiny cove, but offers everything you could possibly want!
The sun beds have also spread over to the opposite shore with the rocks, ideal for those looking for some peace and quiet. Just a few meters further, you will find Anthony Quinn bay, so it is a bit of both worlds if you prefer.
This is also an ideal place for snorkeling.
