Rhodes Ladiko Anthony Quinn beach
Ladiko Anthony Quinn beach Rhodes: The famous Anthony Quinn beach is located 20 km south of Rhodes town between the beaches of Faliraki and Ladiko. The original name of the beach is Vagies. The beach however was made famous by the film The Guns of Navarone that was actually filmed here. Since then the locals decided to name the beach after the great protagonist Antony Quinn.
Despite its famous background, the beach was always considered as one of the calmest and most beautiful spots of the island but its excellent waters attracted many tourists since then. It is a rather a small and narrow beach with a combination of sand, pebbles and rocks. It is not entirely organized and the only facilities a visitor can enjoy are a few umbrellas and sundecks.
The rocky hills that surround the beach create a wild yet impressive scenery adding to the greenery landscape of pine trees. Faliraki is the closest area from the beach, at a 3 km distance, where you can find many services available after a full day under the sun.
