Dassia Beach may be narrow at approximately 15 metres wide, but it does have a lot going for it. Two hundred metres long, the mixture of sand and shingle pebbles is largely flat, providing family-friendly entry into tranquil waters. It is able to offer two rows of thatched umbrellas for hire, the latter row partly located on the area of grass behind.
Located between the villages of Gouvia and Ipsos, the beach is a 10-minute drive from Corfu Town, with shops, bars and restaurants lining the coast road. The holder of a Blue Flag for cleanliness, Dassia Beach sits on the eastern coast of Corfu, with views towards Albania.
There are a number of outlets offering water sports equipment for rent, including banana boat rides and paragliding sessions. The smoothness of the water here also makes water-skiing a potential pastime.
