Anthony Quinn Bay
In the 1960s, a famous actor named Anthony Quinn came to Greece to film the movie ‘The guns of Navarone’, filming some of the scenes at this specific beach. Eventually, the beach’s name was changed from ‘Vagies’ to Anthony Quinn Bay. We don’t know precisely why the name changed, but we understand why the actor and directors decided to film there. The bay is picturesque in every sense of the word. From its turquoise waters to the rocky shore and surrounding cliffs, the bay is one of the top spots in Rhodes (and Greece) to visit during the summer. If you come at the right time, you can enjoy the magnificent setting practically all by yourself.
