Ladiko – Anthony Quinn Bay

Amongst the most stunning and popular of the island’s beaches, 15 km south east of the capital and 3 km from Faliraki, is that at Anthony Quinn Bay, named after the star of the 1960s box office hit “The Guns of Navarone”, which was filmed in the region. It is easy to understand why the actor fell love with the area, purchasing land once the filming was complete; set against the verdant backdrop of pine clad hills, the translucent waters lap gently against the rocks. Boats often anchor at the small jetty and, due to the amazing subaquatic topography, the beach is a perfect spot for snorkelling or scuba diving.

The small beach of Ladikos Bay is defined by its crystal clear waters enclosed by a bay, carved out by the action of the sea over time. This delightful magical landscape, considered one of the best small beaches on the island, attracts many visitors and is ideal for those wanting to relax after a long night of festivities.
