Atspas beach is one of three beaches located in Skala Maries and is also known as a sugar beach. It’s 6km from Limenaria on the west coast. When approaching Skala Maries, don’t go right on the highway but turn left to enter Skala Maries. Before entering village on the right at the first villas and cafes, you’ll see down on the left small beach with umbrellas.
It’s a small and highly visited cove. Best known for fine sand, in the water and on the shore, as well as a very long shallow water, so it is very suitable for families with young children. Beach is known for beautiful sunsets, large cane umbrellas, and very clean water.
Sunbeds and umbrellas can be used by ordering a drink or food at the bar Porto Gatos. On the beach there’s a volleyball net, but no shower.
You can park your car on the road.
You can spot the starfishes in the water and octopuses on the surrounding rocks.
From time to time, especially after the bad weather, the beach is full of leaves, and at the end of July and in August it is crowded, so water may get dirty.
Many people say that the sunset on Atspas is the most beautiful. The beach is the most beautiful in the late afternoon, without a crowd, and the water in the shallow water warms up.
At 50m away there’s a supermarket and at 500m excellent taverns that are located in the center of Skala Maries.
On this beach you can enjoy peace, warm water and light music from the bar until night.
