Dassia Tourist Guide || Corfu
Dassia lies on the East coast of Corfu around 13km from the airport and the port in Kerkyra town.
The resort is twinned with Ipsos which lies a mile to the North. Most accommodation in Dassia lies on roads leading towards the beach, and unusually for Corfu the resort features a number of large hotels. The narrow, gently sloping shingle and pebble beach is great for watersports including water ski-ing, banana-boating and parasending. Eating out is no problem as there are many inexpensive beach bars and cafes. Dassia is popular with holiday-makers of all ages, especially young groups and couples under.

Dassia Search

Dassia resort is about 1 mile long, through which travels a very busy main road. All the bars, tavernas, tavernas and shops etc are fronting this main road, most of them being located to the right hand side of the road, heading north. Most of the accommodation in Dassia is self catering studios and apartments, most of which have a pool, very few have a bar and reception. To the left hand side of the road, heading north you will find several dirt tracks, these all lead down to the beach. These dirt tracks are very hard to travel when you are attempting to push a pram, so I presume the same would apply for those accompanying wheelchair users and those who have difficulty walking. You can be really cheeky and cut through the Dassia Chandris Hotel car park, which has a concrete path right down to the beach. the action in Dassia is all set on the very busy main road.

The nightlife is a very relaxed affair and not for those who are looking to dance the night away. For those who do fancy tripping the light fantastic, Ipsos (also known as Ypsos) is a 5 minute bus ride away. It can be reached by foot in around 30-45 minutes and has the full quota of English theme pubs, discos . All the bars and restaurants appear to be run by local families with the exception of Great Shakes at the Ipsos end of the resort. Great Shakes is very much an “English Pub”, with Quiz Nights, Karaoke, and the Eastenders Omnibus with your Sunday Lunch.
There is a taxi rank and the southern end of the resort. Most of the taxis are black Mercedes and the fare into Corfu Town from Dassia was 5 Euros. Although it is advisable to agree a price before getting in.
