Relaxing days and laid-back nights

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.
