There are no Showers on the beach of Dassia. Toilets in the numerous bars on the Dassia Beach.

Child Suitability

As the beach is far from the main busy road it is suitable for children - in as much as you do not need to worry about cars.


Parking is nearby, but some walking will be required. There is a network of excellent footpaths to the beach and along the top.

Cleanliness and Urchins

The beach is clean, but as with many of the beaches on the North East coast, it does suffer from some seaweed on the beach - not unpleasant though in any way.

The lively resort of Ipsos is just a ten min walk. (Dassia is not without some excellent bars and smaller clubs though). The exclusive resort of Kommeno is just round the headland towards Gouvia and the famous 'Church Island' is worth a visit.

Back to Top of Dassia PageHow to get there by Car

From the main Paleokastritsa road look for the turning to 'Kassiopi'. The Kassiopi road takes you to all of the resorts and bays along the NE coast of Corfu. Follow this road and just before Ipsos - the main road goes straight through the resort - you cannot miss it.
