Lipsi is a tiny Greek Island geographically located between Patmos and Leros, resting on the Aegean Sea. There are several routes departing from Lipsi Port, nearly all of them are fairly short and head to other nearby Greek Islands.
Only those who are in need of a truly relaxing, tranquil holiday make their way over to the quiet beaches and crystal waters of Lipsi. The only activity that is required on the island is to climb the hiking trails that lead to some of the beaches, or board the small buses that transport passengers to the more secluded areas. The beaches may be slightly inconvenient to reach, yet there lies their charm; they are all largely untouched by tourism and offer a unique landscape that is unlike any other.
The main town offers the usual selection of quaint cafes and souvenir shops, with the occasional hidden gem for keen shoppers. The traditional Greek restaurants generally serve fish fresh from the waters – a popular choice for anyone who enjoys seafood. Most of the restaurants and hotels are located in the town, yet they are within walking distance of all the main beaches, including the beautiful Platis Gialos Beach.
Lipsi’s beauty lies in its small size; the island is entirely accessible by foot so tourists will have no problem getting around. Most locals or resort workers will be happy to point visitors in the direction of the port should they need assistance.
