Located on the eastern coast of Corfu, just 8 kilometres outside Corfu Town, Dassia is renowned for its beautiful beaches and laid-back nightlife. You can spend as much time as you like during your Dassia holidays relaxing on the 200-metre-long beach, which is backed by olive and pine trees and rolling hills. On a clear day, you can see all the way from the beach to mainland Greece. Daytimes also offer the opportunity to try out some water sports or go for a stroll through the small town.
Instead of big nightclubs, Dassia holidays offer more low-key evenings, though they’re far from dull. You’ll find bustling tavernas with live music and traditional Greek dancing, and beach bars serving cocktails along with the sunsets. Its relaxed attitude and pretty setting make holidays to Dassia popular with all kinds of travellers, from couples to families.
Try out water skis
The sea at Dassia’s main beach is impossibly clear and shallow, and is said to be great for water skiing, so this is your chance to give it a go.
Head to Albania for a day
It’s possible to get to Albania and back in a day by boat – you could take a trip to explore the archaeological sites at Butrint National Park.
Watch the world go by
With its reputation for easy-going evenings, take things at Dassia’s pace – pull up a chair at a beach-side taverna and drink coffees, cocktails and views for hours on end.
