Dassia beach has always been one of the most popular Corfu beaches, especially for the locals. It's only 11km from Corfu town and there is a frequent bus connection with blue buses from San Rocco square. Dassia is rewarded with the EU's blue flag for the cleanness of the water and the beach facilities. The beach is a mixture of sand and fine pebbles and extends up to a mile in length, with pleasant stretches of tree shade. Sunbeds and parasols can be rented for 7-8Euros for two people for the whole day.
The sea is shallow with warm water but this is not the ideal place for relaxation or privacy - it can get very crowded.
If you decide to go there by car, parking should not be a problem. To get to the beach take a right exit on the main road - there are many paths and pretty much all of them get you to the beach. You can also use the beach front of the Ikos Dassia hotel but the sunbeds there are for the exclusive use of the hotel guests.
Water sports, restaurants, beach bars with swimming pools, showers and changing lockers can be found all along the beach while many shops, rental offices and accommodation for every portfolio streches along the main street. You can also access Dassia from port or San Rocco square in Corfu town by blue bus; departs almost every 15min.
Tip: At either end of the beach things are quieter, but there is less sand and mostly pebbles.
