clean beach in Piraeus

Hi

We have one day on a cruise in Piraeus. We have visited the sites in Athens before so just wanted to spend the morning on the closest beach to the cruise terminal.

Which beach is best and what is the easiest way of getting there. Happy to walk if not too far.

Have read on a cruise forum somewhere someone saying that best not to swim at Piraeus as the sea is very polluted. Is this true?

Thank you.

It seems that the X96 makes some stops on the way to the airport including Voula beach, so that's a good option. It will take almost an hour to get there from Piraeus though.

Yes, the X96 does make stops along the way, for pick up only! Sorry :) From the airport it's drop off only, so cant be used for a coastal trip.
