Dassia or sometimes Dasia is a resort, set on both sides of the main coastal road on the east coast of Corfu
, approximately 13km north of the capital Kerkyra
. This means it’ll take around 20 minutes to make the drive and transfers from the airport will be about the same.
Dassia has a good selection of restaurants to suit all tastes as well as all the usual tourist facilities like car rental shops, souvenir shops, supermarkets, dozens of hotels to choose from as well as a camp site. There’s even a scuba diving centre and a paintball centre to keep your teenagers entertained.
Dassia beach has a purpose built Jetty for water sports so this would be a good place to be if you or someone in your family likes Jetskis, banana boats, parasailing, paddle boards and other high adrenaline water activities. Also on the beach are a number of trendy tavernas with nice quality sun loungers and other seating options.
Night life in Dassia is good, there’s a number of bars around the sea front and even a couple of clubs. There are Greek nights with traditional dancing, live music and Karaoke too so Dassia has something for everyone and enough to keep you going all week.
Also in the area are the villages of Ipsos
to the north which is a short 20 minutes walk away and Gouvia
to the south which has a nice Marina where you can grab a drink and watch the boats come and go.
