The tourist resort of Dassia

Dassia Beach resort, 8km north of Corfu town, was the site of Europe’s first Club Mediterranee, its promontory now empty and awaiting development by its new owners.

Dassia lays inside the northern gulf of Corfu island and offers a 2-kilometer long, flat sand and shingle beach, popular with families, with sunbeds and umbrellas for people who like to sunbathe with comfort, also it is fringed with hotels, tavernas, and bars catering for every taste.

Swimming is very safe as the beach shelves gently into the sea, and there are also plenty of water sports to be enjoyed, indeed, dives to the clear turquoise waters can be done from a platform right in the middle of the resort.

Dassia is one of the few Corfu beaches that offer shadow under the trees that are very close to the sea, behind the beach.

Along the road which is back from the seafront, there are many more shops and bars, and a short walk inland brings you to the Corfu branch of the National Art Gallery, on the grounds of one of Corfu’s grandest mansions.

There are also some very attractive villages and walks which can be enjoyed without too much exertion, as it is relatively flat.

There is a campsite, and also 4-star luxury hotels, plus plenty in between, so there really is something for everyone here.
