Anthony Quinn Bay beach lies at the end of the narrow fjord-like bay of the same name. It comprises pockets of golden sand tucked between natural biscuit-coloured rock formations. These provide protection from even the strongest waves. Pines and other native flora offer some natural shade, alongside umbrellas and sun loungers which are available to rent.

Well known for the clarity and turquoise colour of its waters, Anthony Quinn Bay is best appreciated by saltwater lovers, who have the option of swimming and snorkelling amid underwater rocks, or drifting slightly further out on a small motorized boat.

Anthony Quinn Bay takes its name from the 1960s actor who filmed scenes from World War II movie The Guns of Navarone on the beach. Before this time, it was known as Vagies Bay. Approximately 250 metres in length, it lies only a few minutes from Faliraki on the island’s east coast.

As a result, Anthony Quinn Bay is popular with visitors and residents of Faliraki. All the same, the beach is a great place to while away a few hours. A bar/café is located a short distance up a concrete staircase, while parking can be found just a couple of minutes away.
