Holidays to Dassia give you top-notch watersports, authentic Greek restaurants and easy daytrips – all on Corfu’s pretty east coast.
One of the bigger Greek islands, Corfu is an ideal choice for your Cruise & Stay holiday. Take a break here and you'll fall in love with its amazing Mediterranean weather, fabulous secluded beaches and richly diverse history with impressive architecture.
Dassia is a small town on Corfu’s east coast, with beautiful surrounds and plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. You don’t have to travel far if you just want to spend time enjoying the wonderful coastline and dramatic views back over to Greece’s mainland. Visit the 200-metre stretch of shingle beach with a jetty where you can try your hand at any number of watersports. For total relaxation, grab a good book and find a shady spot under one of the olive trees that line the beach.
The coastal road
The hub of Dassia is the road along the coast, where you’ll find the most popular bars and restaurants, including buzzy karaoke joints and pubs hosting quiz nights. Whether you're starting or ending your cruise here, make sure to spend at least one night experiencing a traditional Greek evening, complete with ouzo, authentic national foods, dancing and even plate-smashing. The coastal road is also the place to pick up your souvenirs, from t-shirts to leather goods.
Bike trails and scenery
Take advantage of the bicycle hire shops in Dassia and prepare to get active on two wheels. Follow the bike trails from Dassia up into Corfu’s hills, making sure your route takes you past some rest points to enjoy local cheese and olives. The views you’ll see on the way are breathtaking, plus you’ll get the opportunity to discover some lovely little villages for a real insight into local life on Corfu.
Visit Corfu Town
Just 10 minutes from Dassia is the richly historic Corfu Town. Spend a morning of your Cruise & Stay holiday knowledge-hunting in the museums, and get to know the true heritage of this island. Then, you can take up the afternoon exploring the fortresses in the area. Or simply find a good spot on the local esplanade, or Spianada, for an afternoon of people watching over a delicious lunch. Greek salad anyone?
