The Dassia resort can be found on the green east coast of Corfu, and if you are young or you simply like to have fun and practice sports, or both, then this resort has been made exactly for you. Dassia is one of the rather large Corfu resorts, providing a wide range of hotel and restaurant services as well as sports and entertainment. It is located only about 12 km from the capital and there is local bus going to the resort. The whole town is located on a mostly plain surface, and some parts of the beach are even paved, so they can be accessed even by people with disabilities. All the life is concentrated on the main road lined by bars and restaurants, from which some of the streets go directly to the beach.
In the Dassia resort, you can choose from a wide range of accomoodation facilities including huge luxury hotels but also small family pensions. You will also find there lots of shops with everything you might need, including souvenir shops to buy some gifts for your family and friends.
The main beach in Dassia is located opposite the Albanian coast outside busy roads. It is quite long and plain, formed mostly by pebbles and coarse sand. It has a very gentle entry into the sea. The water there is mostly calm and the beach has been awarded the EU Blue Flag for its cleanliness and top quality. Of course you can rent there an umbrella and a deckchair, too. Besides idling on the beach, those of a more adventurous nature can experience some excitement practicing some of the water sports being offered in the place, including diving, water skiing and windsurfing but also driving a motorboat or riding a banana boat.
Dassia is a summer paradise of sportsmen, not only for the already mentioned water activities. Given that the area of the resort is quite plain, it is perfect for cycling and those who prefer to do sports in a more relaxed way, but still the resort can be enjoyed also by more physically fit hikers. The local landscape is really picturesque, full of olive groves and more green vegetation, so driving a bicycle or a hiking tour can become a very nice and relaxing experience. If you prefer some calmer activity, you can go to play golf to the local golf club.
What to do in Dassia?
In the local tavernas and restaurants, you can order anything including Greek or Chinese cuisine. There are also pizzerias and fast food restaurants, and obviously bars with delicious ice-cold drinks to refresh yourself during a hot summer day. In the evening, you can sit down over a glass of good wine or go dancing to some of the local clubs with music of all kinds, including Greek folk music but also modern music. If you get weary of the local venues, you can visit the nearby resort of Ipsos, located only about 2 km far away, sought after especially by the youth coming to enjoy some hilarious entertainment. So, if you love to stay awake all night long, you should definitely go to Ipsos as well.
You can go for a nice walk in the resort itself and go to see an exhibition of fine arts, for example - there is an art gallery located on a hill called Kato Korakiano. To go to the resort surroundings, you can rent a car in some of the local car rental services, or take a taxi or go by bus or by boat. There is reguar bus connection also to the island capital of Kerkyra which is definitely worth seeing. There you can visit the local historical sites and museums, sit in some of the many tavernas, or play cricket on some of the local grounds. In the nearby surroundings of Dassia, about 2 km far away, you will find more lively resorts of Ipsos a Gouvia which are full of bars and discos and can be reached comfortably by walking.
