Anthony Quinn beach (Vagies), Rhodes Island

The small beach of Anthony Quinn is situated at the eastern coast of the island, at a distance of 15 kilometers far from the town of Rhodes, between the famous beaches of Faliraki and Ladiko. The beach is found within a small cove, officially called Vagies. However, after the film “The Guns of Navarone” was shot here, the locals gave to the beach the name of Anthony Quinn, the star of the film. It is considered as one of the loveliest and calmest beaches all over the island.

It is a small beach, some 250 meters long and 10 meters wide, with fine sand, pebbles and rocks, both out and inside the sea. Not much organized, the only facilities it offers to the visitors are some umbrellas and sun beds. No sea sports are available at the beach. Also, you will not find here accommodation or food and drink facilities, apart from a small bar on the rocks. However, many people come here for the crystal clear sea with the fascinating colors, for the rocky sea bed, ideal for the fans of underwater swimming, and for the calmness they enjoy, as is it is secluded enough from the nearby crowded and noisy resorts. The rocky low hills surrounding the beach is one of the features contributing to the seclusion of it. An additional pro are the pine trees, some of them just at the edge of the sea, which apart from the shadow, contribute to the nice colors of the environment. Several swimmers settle on a flat rock to enjoy sunbathing.

The beach is a favorite choice of young people, especially Italian, as the rocky sea bed and the rocks on the beach make it unsuitable for families with small children. Most of the people come here only in July and August, as before July and after August the water is quite cold.

In case of health problems you should address to Faliraki, some 3 kilometers to the North, where you may also find other services. Close to the unique bar of the beach, you may find a card phone.

Access to the beach from the town of Rhodes is easy by taxi, or by rented or private car and motorbikes. If you reach the beach by boat or yacht, a small jetty is available for mooring.
