Welcome to Dassia

Dassia

Dassia is a friendly and relaxed resort. Although on a small scale there is plenty in Dassia for holiday makers to enjoy. The beach is an absolute delight with its gentle curve of a bay and the backdrop of olive groves and luscious hillsides. Across the bay of Dassia there are impressive views of the Greek mainland which at times reveals itself evocatively in blue haze and at other shows up distinctly.
