Elea Beach Hotel

A stay at the Elea Beach Hotel includes top-notch views and a good helping of famous Greek hospitality. The rooms come with mountain or sea views, and on a clear day, you can see as far as the Greek mainland.

This laid-back hotel suits families down to the ground. There’s a children’s pool next to the cafe, volleyball games on the beach and plenty of evening shows.

For meals, head to the international buffet restaurant. You can also grab a homemade cocktail at the pool bar and relax on the comfy sofas in the lounge bar.

Overview of Dassia

Dassia is a long-standing favourite with people searching for holidays to Corfu because it provides opportunities for relaxation and adventure in equal measure.

Whether you want to sunbathe on the beach or get sporty on the water, you can when you stay at the Elea Beach Hotel. Away from the shoreline, you can hit the shops, sample some of the lively bars and then even try some traditional Greek dancing. Plus, you’re close to the island’s capital of Corfu Town.

Things to do in Dassia

A pebble beach skims the Elea Beach Hotel. Sunloungers parade along the water’s edge, which stays clear and shallow for a good way out. The beach is 200 metres long and has earned a Blue Flag award, so you know it’s going to be good. Water-skiing is particularly popular, but there are plenty of other options on the jetty – and you can even hire a boat and head around the coast!

It’s only a five-minute walk to the centre of Dassia and plenty of souvenir shops line the coastal road. As night falls, Dassia transforms into a relaxing paradise. You can dine at one of the Greek restaurants and many of the local bars stay open until the last patron calls it a night. Enjoy the active beach lifestyle with a stay in Dassia – you and the family will find plenty to keep you busy.

Resort Summary

Framed by walls of green pine trees, Dassia’s shore is 200 metres long, with clean, golden shingle and shallow, gentle waters. This strip of sand has earned itself a Blue Flag award, meaning that even in high season it remains clean and pleasant to be on. The beach is very family-friendly, with plenty of loungers and parasols, but not so many it feels overcrowded.

The beach has more than its fair share of watersports for its guests to enjoy. Waterskiing is a particular favourite among visitors to Dassia, but there are plenty of other choices advertised on the jetty.

Hire a boat and take your time visiting other beaches around the island – training is offered beforehand and it’s a great way to see Corfu. If you’re more of a kick-back-and-relax kind of person, you can shelter yourself under the beach’s olive trees and watch others skim across the ocean’s surface.
