James Villas Corfu

Dassia Corfu travel guide

Dassia beach on Corfu is located on the east coast of Corfu and faces the coast of Albania and the Greek mainland.

Although well signposted from Corfu Town ,the resort is easy to miss from the highway and any number of visitors overshoot the turn-off and make their way back.

There is plenty of parking in Dassia but spaces quickly get taken, especially near beach. There are several access roads to the beach and drivers usually park along these.

Dassia beach is on a flat and narrow coastal strip backed by wooded hills and it almost merges with its twin resort of Ipsos just to the north.

Dassia beach is a long and narrow stretch of gently sloping pebble and shingle. It gets sandy under in the water but drops sharply so this is not a great beach for children.

Several large holiday hotels ensure Dassia beach is often crowded and any number of restaurants and cafes serving up staple tourist fare with chips.

There are sunbeds and showers but for toilets vistors use the beachside cafes and cantinas.

Dassia has a wide selection of watersports and a couple of small piers for boats. There is some natural shade from trees on the back of Dassia beach, often in the gardens of beach-front apartments.

Public transport in Dassia is good with regular buses to resorts both north and south and Dassia taxis are plentiful.
