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.

Lovely day out

Boat Trip to Anthony Quinn, Kallithea & Traganou Bays
This was a lovely, cooling way to spend a day in Rhodes. Each of the three bays were beautiful and we had plenty of time for snorkelling and swimming. The lunch was fresh and traditional and the beer was cold. Our transfer from hotel to boat trip also went very smoothly and the staff at each point were friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

We were so glad that we booked this excursion. It was our trip of a life time. This was one of our best excursions. Captain George was a great host and Chef!! My husband, also a Chef had great conversations with the Captain George. The islands we visited were breathtaking and the water was a blue I can't describe!! Thank you Captain George and your wonderful ship assistant for making this one of the most incredible memories!

The Story Behind the Name

Anthony Quinn purchased the bay and beach from the Greek state for a nominal sum, a gift to him for putting the island on the map. Later, however, as Quinn progressed with plans to transform the space into an arts and film center, the ‘gift’ was taken away, causing friction between the actor and his beloved second home.
