Anthony Quinn Bay
4.5
About
This bay served as a filming location to the movie 'Guns of Navarone', which was starred by the bay's namesake, Anthony Quinn. Here, you can rent a pedal boat to zip through the waters or chill on a lounge chair and bask in the glorious Greek sun. The beach sits adjacent to Ladiko Beach and you can park for free between both beaches—but get there early in the morning to secure a spot. Alternatively, hop on the public bus from the village of Rhodes or take a boat tour around the island and stop for a refreshing splash here. – Tripadvisor

    Must See !
    Very nice bay where the film with Anthony Queen was managed The Bay is fantastic with crystal water and so many fish below the surface It is a Must See of the island but the best way to do it is with a boat as the beach is very small a d very busy. . If you want a nice tip is also to rent a boat to go there. It is cheaper than a cruise. Close to the bay you have Seals House which isxa giant inside cavern where the seals come. Please di not disturb and keep yourself outside of the cave

    Quite nice bay
    This is a lovely bay for swimming in, especially if you get there early. Bigger than Ladiko Bay which it is immediately next to, and frankly I don’t think there’s much difference in terms of prettiness. There are some nice short walking trails which give some spectacular views. There’s lots of space around the beach and the edge of the bay for sun beds and umbrellas but they’re expensive at €30 a day for 2 beds and one umbrella. Further round to along the southern edge it feels a bit like sunbathing in a quarry (I think it actually was) as there’s less vegetation and the rock face is bare. You might find some small spaces around the bay to set up your own shop-bought umbrella if you want, which works out cheaper if you’re going to be there for a few days. Good for snorkelling. The restaurant there is pretty, plays quite loud clubby music, and serves basic food. Quite expensive though as you’re basically a captive audience. There’s very little other choice for food and drink within walking distance so it’s worth considering taking your own snacks. Accessible by road and there is car parking. Gets very busy with day trip boats. I counted 20+ boats at one point, so if you are staying locally, make the effort to go early in the morning and you’ll be treated to a beautifully tranquil bay virtually to yourself.

    Beautiful and busy bay
    Arrived with Royal Sailing Rhodes who as part of a boat tour stopped here so we could swim. The tour wasn't able to drop us off though which would have been better for those of us who wanted to walk on the beach. The bay itself is very picturesque with clear clean water but this makes it busy during peak season with a lot of boats stopping by.

    Perfect afternoon!
    We arrived at Anthony Quinn Bay not sure what to expect from the reviews, but we had the best afternoon! We took a taxi and arrived at 4pm and stayed a couple of hours, the views are stunning and the vibe was laid back and lots of families. We hired a couple of sun-loungers and an umbrella for €30 between 8 of us (4 adults/4kids) and that did us fine, as most of the time everyone was in the sea. The kids enjoyed snorkelling and saw lots of fish and other sea creatures which they absolutely loved. The sea is stunning and I would recommend the short walk around the bay to look the different views. There is a shower on the beach and there are toilets at the top of the stairs which were clean and well maintained. This was by far our favourite trip whilst on Rhodes and I would definitely recommend a visit, even if just for a couple of hours like we did.

    Love this Bay It’s beautiful!
    It’s an amazing place view is spectacular! Sea is so clear so snorkelling is a must! My second time visiting, the lady in charge of the sun beds is very sweet I can’t rate this beautiful spot enough we had teens with us but all sorts of ages watch out the steps down are a bit steep.

    Beautiful swimming day
    Beautiful Bay with clear blue waters and a fab bar close by. Also a little hut serving beers for 4 euros. A lovely sea swim relax day. Be aware 2 sun beds and umbrella are 30 euros, we went at 3pm so luckily got a bed but sure not so easy earlier. and best to take your own refreshments.

    Nice bay to visit.
    The bay is for swimming rather than sun bathing. The area is very pebbly but really enjoyed swimming in the water. Definitely need to wear sea shoes ton protect your feet. Toilets on site free to use. Only spent an hour here to literally swim and see the bay.

    Stunning little bay!
    Little gem of a bay. Went here to do a touch of snorkeling and sunbathing. Safe to say wasn't disappointed. Hired a pair of flippers from the dive shop at the top of the bay for 10 euros for all day. Sun lounger 15 euros for all day. Reasonably priced. The views were fantastic perfect blue water, little sun trap. Make sure you take suitable shoes as it's a pebble beach and isn't the most pleasant to walk on.

    Go early!!! Parking a nightmare otherwise, 15 euros per sunbed, rip off
    It's a beautiful bay with sunbeds placed in every inch of spare space on the small rocks. We found a rock to chick our towels on as I refuse to pay 15 euros per sunbed as we only wanted a quick dip in the sea. You need rock shoes ideally.

    Anthony Quinn Bay / Ladiko Beach
    A great bay , with Ladiko Beach opposite where the sand is ..Unfortunately the sunbeds on the beach are 15euros each , if you are spending an entire day there then maybe it is worth it , The bay itself is stunning , water is clear with fish if you like snorkelling and warm too .! There is a place to eat on the beach and a little way up the road leading to and from the bay there is a lovey hotel and cafe , I stopped and ate here , lovely food , and a relaxing place to chill for a while , especially f you are walking from other places . A bus can be caught here too . 5 stars qould be given but the sunbeds were too expensive for me personally , There are a few small places where you can put a towel down if you desire . Definitely worth a visit .

It’s a lovely peaceful place. The waters calm, perfect temperature. We did some snorkelling - that’s was okay. Bus from Faliraki 1.20 each, drops you off at the top of the hill and you can just walk down to either Anthony Quinn or ladiko bay. Perfect for a day out very chilled atmosphere. The only down side rubbish left by people, nappies , empty drink cartons - terrible not to pick up your own rubbish.

Anthony Quinn Bay is a beautiful inlet of water with crystal clear waters. There is free parking at the top, the some steps to climb down to the bay. On the stony beach, there are sunbeds and umbrellas to hire. The waters are very clear so good for snorkelling although we didn't see many fish. As we visited in April, the water was blooming freezing! There is a bar at the top called Kounna Beach & Resto Bar. It has fantastic views across the bay. Due to the time of year we visited, it wasn't very busy, but I can imagine in high season that the beach gets very crowded and lots of boats come into the bay and drop anchor.

We went to the bay at the end of the day. The sun was going down. There was lots of room to park and it’s just a short walk to the bay. There is a restaurant where you can sit and eat that looks out over the bay or you can just walk around for the view. There were boats coming in and it’s was a beautiful place to watch the sun go down.

The bay is absolutely stunning and most certainly worth visiting. However, it was so overly crowded when we arrived there that there weren’t any sunbeds or even places to sit left. Besides, the tiny rocks kind of hurt your feet. I would recommend visiting the bay but if you are looking for a place to enjoy a day of swimming, snorkeling and nice drinks, the beach and cafe right across is way better.

Lovely spot for snorkelling. Free parking and you can take four out on a pedalo dive boat for 15-20 euros per hour. Toilets and snorkelling equipment available to hire and a clean Taverna that overlooks the bay.

Disappointed to say the least. I asked the hotel I was staying at if could get there by bus she said no its a narrow road. Its a low the bus stop was next to taxi ramp amd there is a bus that goes to Ladiko beach which is next door to Anthony Quinn Bay. The taxi dropped off at Ladiko Bay and lied and said its Anthony quinn beach. I then asked a bar tender at the restaurant and he explained its a 15 min walk up the cliff. So trekked there to find it swarming with people. Old chairs with no umbrellas ( only a handful already taken) the Bay is crystal clear but how can you enjoy that with people mulling around you whilst you try to relax
On top of it every boat comes in every 30 mins with a truck load of people to swim. The restaurant above the Bay is noisy. It's just not relaxing at all. So after a disappointing start to the day it was also a disappointing finish. Had to trek back to the taxi rank which is where I discovered the bus stop and it was already too late tobfetvthe bus as the last one had left according to the timetable. It would help if there was clearer tourist info around town. Its clearly a popular place to visit.

We went to see if the snorkelling was better than at the neighbouring ladiko beach.
Water was clear when we arrived but after the many boats (and people there) it was less so.
In our experience there were more varieties of fish at ladiko and access there easier.
It's an organised area, with sunbeds costing €30 per set with umbrella.
It's not really a beach... just a strip of pebbly shore. We were lucky to find a space to put a towel down, but with many beds it's tricky to find.
The access is not easy if you have mobility issues as it's down some wooden steps and you may have to walk some way to find a bed.
I would definitely revisit, if only for the food and view from the restaurant above

Biggest disappointment. Beach is very filthy ( cans, dirty papers, condoms, smell of piss) and sun beds 15 euro each. You cant lay on your own towel on public beach. Very little space u can feel the breath of person behind you. Water is not So beautiful like on pictures. Dont waste your time to go there.
