Dassia is conveniently located on the east coast of this tantalising island, just 14 km from Corfu town (Kerkyra). It faces Albania and the Greek mainland - on a clear day the views across the Ionian sea are dramatically beautiful. Dassia is on a flat, narrow plain right beside the sea, backed by lush, tree-covered hills. It is a busy, active resort that likes to wake early and stay up late. During the day, make the most of the shingle and pebble beach - after a refreshing swim in the calm sea, lie back, relax and let the sun slowly warm your skin and soul. Water-sports are popular, including waterskiing, banana boats and boat hire.
Why not invest in a speedboat for the day and visit some of Corfu's hidden, deserted coves. Dassia is popular with couples and groups of friends who want a little bit of night-life and a lot of atmosphere. There are many bars, tavernas and a couple of discos, playing anything from traditional Greek folk songs to the latest chart hits. Don't forget to pack your dancing shoes.
A regular bus service runs along the coast, and taxis are easily available to take you into the lively neighbouring resorts of Gouvia or Ipsos after dark. There is a long, narrow shingle beach which shelves gently into the warm waters. It is backed by olive and pine trees that rustle relaxingly in the sea breeze. Dassia reputedly offers the best water-sports in Corfu
and the flat water is particularly excellent for windsurfing. Choose from the wide range of snack bars, pizzerias, beach bars & restaurants in Dassia. They can mostly be found either side of the main road, but some of the smaller side streets offer quieter more traditional atmospher..
