Lipsi (Leipsi, Lipso) refers to both a cluster of 24 islets in the Dodecanese island group between Patmos and Leros in the southeastern Aegean Sea, and the largest island in the cluster. This island has a history that starts with the mythological goddess Calypso in the Mycenaean and Classical epochs, continuing through the Byzantine years and beyond. The Lipsi islands have been well developed over the last 30 years, as evidenced by their population’s growth to 800 residents and their excellent infrastructure and active municipality. Significant touristic development has included the creation of many good accommodation and dining establishments. Lipsi has many good beaches, the most famous is Platis Gialos, a shallow sandy beach with light blue crystal-clear water in the northern part of the island. The very good road network will take you to all the main points on the island. At the port, you can find tourist boats for daily excursions to the surrounding islands in the summer.
