Dassia Bay holidays take you to Corfu’s east coast where you’ll find turquoise blue waters and soft golden sands. The town is surrounded by fragrant pine forests which make it perfect for explorers wanting to hike or mountain bike, while there are plenty of opportunities to simply relax and enjoy the views from the comfort of your sun lounger.
Active visitors to Dassia Bay can make the most of the water sports available on the unspoilt beach, with banana boat rides perfect for families and water skiing for older guests.

Wash this down with cocktails and fine wines in one of the local bars as you listen to live music or simply relax and wind down for the evening. If you want to pick up gifts and souvenirs to take home, there are plenty of shops to explore in the town.
