Anthony Quinn Bay

The Basics

This is one of Rhodes’ most undeniably picturesque beaches, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, or simply watching the sunset. Many boat tours and shore excursions make a swimming stop at the bay, along with Kallithea Springs and Afandou Beach, the longest beach on the island. Options range from a laid-back sail aboard a traditional wooden ship with time for snorkeling to a day aboard a party boat, complete with champagne, beer, and music on full blast.
