The best and one of the most popular sandy beaches of Spetses is Agioi Anargiri Beach on the west side of the island. The beach is connected to the capital Spetses Town by a bus, but you can also go the beach by special boats from the port. The buses to the beach can be very busy sometimes, and on the beach-boats it is usually much more quiet.

Spetses Town has a town beach. Spetses Town Beach is a pebble beach, although there is also some sand. The beach is shallow here. Around the town beach is sufficient accommodation and you all amenities (tavernes, bars etc) are available. The beach is not very big, so it can get pretty busy.

Two miles south of the harbor Dapia (in Spetses Town) is the popular Agia Marina Beach, surrounded by cypress and pine trees, where a cute little pink-white chapel stands. This beach is mostly sandy and there are some pebbles at the sea edge. In Agia Marina beach you will find all facilities. There are taverns, you can rent parasols and sunbeds and you can do watersports. The beach is accessible by bus or water taxi, but also on foot.

Xylokeriza Beach is located in the southeast of the island on the route of Agia Marina Beach to Agioi Anargiri, at 8 km distance from the new port Dapia. The last stretch to the beach you walk along a path. There is a tavern on the beach but it is less developed than most other beaches on Spetses.

It consists of sand and pebbles and the beach is at walking distance from Agioi Anargiri where you can go by bus. The beach is less busy than its southern neighbor.

From Spetses Town, there are boats going to the beach at the quiet village of Kosta, opposite Spetses on the mainland. Beware what kind of boat you get in, because there are regular boats for a number people and there are the more expensive taxi boats.
