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 canteen. The crystal clear water and gorgeous underwater scenery also makes Anthony Quinn bay one of the best areas in Rhodes for snorkeling.

Wondered why we were the only 'old' people in this bay. Apparently it's the sharp stones? Hadn't noticed myself. Anyway I can't understand why no one has mentioned the most stunning cliff walk from here over to Faliraki. It's only about 2 miles in total but even the first mile to the top of the ridge is amazing. This walk should be in Rhodes top 10... even young people might enjoy it, as they cope so well with sharp stones.

I have to admit that I visited Rhodes more than seven times, and have really found this Bay as one of the most exclusive and enjoyable places I have been to in my life. Visit the place YOU will not regret it.

This bay is a must see! just got back from Rhodes and this bay was the best snorkeling ever, perfectly clear, very warm, not too deep and as calm as ever, this is the place to teach the kids, don't forget a pair of swim shoes as we found the rocks sharp and HOT! getting down to the waters edge. Getting there is easy from Rhodes town bus station under 2 Euros but when you get there you must walk down a very steep hill and the bus back is a hard slog back up the hill to the bus stop at the very posh Hotel (cant remember its name?) at the top of the hill. Dont miss it!
