The East Coast in Pictures

 

We set out from the town towards the southeast, along the road which runs parallel to the eastern coast of the island. We drive through the seaside settlements of Agia Marina and Reni Koskinou and on to Kalithea, known for its healing waters. The crystal clear waters of its lovely bay have an abundance of marine life and are an ideal place for diving and snorkeling.

This is one of the largest tourist settlements of the island, with a marvelous beach, many hotels, shops, sports facilities, etc... About 5 min drive from Faliraki and 15km from Rhodes Town is the famous "Antony Quinn Bay" a nice sand and pebble beach surrounded by green hills. It became famous before the movie "The Guns of Navarone" when Anthony Quinn fell in love of the bay and bought lands there. Since those days this place has been called Anthony Quinn Bay.

The white houses "Captain houses" with the blue sky create a beautiful contrast! Lovely old residences, hearkening back to the 16th and 17th centuries, when they were constructed by wealthy merchant seafarers as visible evidence of their success.
