Dassia is conveniently located on the east coast of this tantalising island, just 14km from Corfu Town. It faces Albania and the Greek mainland - on a clear day the views across the Ionian sea are dramatically beautiful. Dassia is on a flat, narrow plain right beside the sea, backed by lush, tree-covered hills. It is a busy, active resort that likes to wake early and stay up late. During the day, make the most of the shingle and pebble beach. Watersports are popular, including waterskiing, banana boats and boat hire. Dassia is popular with couples and groups of friends who want a little bit of nightlife and a lot of atmosphere. There are many bars, tavernas and a couple of discos.
