My limited* experience with Shimano SPD was that a drop of oil on the cleats can resolve the hard-to-get-out problem. (*) Only had them for a year quite a while back, didn't like the feel.
You could try grip tape on the pedals (skateboard shop). I use hiking boots.I don't like sand and dirt in shoes Still slippery when wet. Deck shoes for sailing is another option. They are supposed to grip even when wet.
