Ladiko Beach

A picturesque landmark you shouldn’t miss when visting Rhodes.


Ladiko Bay

A unique destination

‘Ladiko’ is a little jar used for oil in Greek households. The beautiful Ladiko beach took this name because it used to be the place for loading and unloading olive oil. The cargo boats of the time used this spot as a commercial trade station with the local olive oil producers when they loaded their cargo for Egypt or the Middle East. The local fishermen have discovered around the area many clay pots from old shipwrecks trading in the area. It is located right behind Anthony Quinn bay and it is surrounded by caves. The scenic Ladiko bay is now a busy little beach where many boat trips stop for a dive in its clear water, and many diving activities are offered.
