Dassia is a popular resort located between the villages of Gouvia and Ipsos (situated 12km away from Corfu Town), easily reached by a regular bus connection. Boasting a friendly and cosmopolitan atmosphere, Dassia has surfaced as one of the most inviting places for someone to spend a relaxing vacation in Corfu. Right in front of the village is a magnificent, narrow beach that stretches for a couple of kilometers. It is consisted of sand and pebbles, with two rows of sunbeds and umbrellas for those who want to enjoy a comfortable sunbathing.
The beach of Dassia is quite flat with no sand dunes, offering a perfect view of the Albanian coasts and the island’s surroundings. At the centre of the beach there is a platform where one can experience an amazing dive to the crystalline waters. This beach is quite lively and developed, and is highly recommended for summer activities. Trees at the back of the beach provide some nice shade, and also small tour boats are available for a short trip to the nearby beaches. A walk along the beach reveals a series of smaller bays which are ideal for total privacy. The beach offers a fascinating view to the Monastery of Pantokrator.
Elea Beach is a friendly and well-maintained hotel, ideally located directly on the seafront- with only the pool area separating the hotel from the beach. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and a large olive grove, Elea Beach hotel is an ideal place for families and for couples of all ages.
