Spathies is located 7.5 km south from Nikiti. Coming from Nikiti, after the turn for Kalogri, continiue straight for about 1 km and you will see the turn for Spathies. You can park the car on the widenings along the road. Considering that there is not much space it is not a bad idea to visit this beach in the early morning during the high season. Spathies is actually consisted from two separate beaches in the small and big bay. Small Spathies beach is closer to the road and you will come across it first. It is only 50 m long and in the middle it has a big tree that makes a natural shade. Almost all of the visitors gather under the tree so it gets a bit crowded in this part of the beach. The beach has turquoise water, fine sand, calm sea so it’s a really good place for children and enjoyment. If you are not in the mood for crowd continiue by foot, so that small Spathies stays on your right, and after a minute walk you will get to big Spathies beach which is the opposite from the previous one. It is 200 m long, with no crowd, ideal for everyone looking for little peace. There you can also find a bit of natural shade, but still its recommended to bring your own umbrella. Both of the beaches are not organized, with no umbrellas, sunbeds, toilets or showers, so you should bring your own equipment and plan your meals because there are no restaurants or shops with food. Close to the Spathies beach is the famous Kalogria beach, so you can visit themboth in the same day.
