Lipsi Island


Lipsi, is an island in the Northern Dodecanese, south of Samos, north of Leros, east of Patmos, with just about 700 residents. It is a quite island where people still live a traditional lifestyle and farmers still ride on their donkeys, mules or horses to the fields. Much of the land on Lipsi was owned by the Monastery of St. John the Baptist, on Patmos.

From this time on, the island was inhabited by people of Hellenic descent. There is road network covering most of Lipsi. The distances between the harbor and the rest of the island are quite short. If you start to walk to any direction, within 15-45 min. you will find yourself on the other side of the island, right on the coast. Otherwise, you can always rent one of the few mopeds running on the island or take the local buses. Lipsi Island - Greece
Lipsi Island - Greece Lipsi is ideal for people who enjoy a quiet holiday close to unspoilt nature in the beautiful Mediterranean climate. First of all, anywhere you might want to go, has easy access. A selection of 14 major beaches along with the innumerable small ones and tranquil little coves, makes your holidays anything but boring. There are also little islands around Lipsi. During the season there are boats crossing over and back.
Spending a day on one of these little islands, swimming, getting a tan, snorkeling in crystal clear waters, Barbequing on tiny "private" coves, would be an unforgettable experience. But if you are the "traveling type" you can always take a day trip to Patmos, Leros, Kalymnos, Kos or Samos, to go sightseeing or shopping. When the night comes, doing what the locals do, is highly recommended. Lipsi Island - Greece
