Anthony Quinn beach

Anthony Quinn beach - Timea Turjanszki

The Anthony Quinn beach, is a fantastic natural port with stunning emerald waters, on the east coast of Rhodes. The name comes from the once famous Hollywood actor who fell in love with the place during the filming of the Hollywood epic The Guns of Navarone. The outstanding natural surroundings of the bay where used as the main scenery for the film.

Anthony Quinn attempted, unsuccessfully, to buy the land and create an artist and filmmaker center. The locals nicknamed it Anthony Quinn bay, and the name stuck.

The beach is very popular and can get overcrowded during the peak months of July and August. It is ideal for swimming and snorkelling in the clear waters and relaxing on the beach soaking up the scenery.

The swallow waters and the natural pools make it suitable for children. There are some sun loungers and umbrellas for rent, and restaurant/cafeteria with fantastic view to the bay.

The larger area where the e beach is located is called Ladikò and it is easily accessed from the main road that connects Faliraki with Afandou. It is distant about 16 km from downtown Rhodes and about 1.5 km from Faliraki’s center.

Highly recommended!
