Lipsi (Leipsi, Lipso) is the only village (also called Chora) of the cluster of 24 islets in the Dodecanese island group between Patmos and Leros in the southeastern Aegean Sea. The island’s history starts with the mythological goddess Calypso in the Mycenaean and Classical eras, continuing through the Byzantine years and beyond. The Lipsi islands have been well developed over the last 30 years, as shown by their population’s growth to 800 residents and their remarkable infrastructure, including schools, waste management, and energy. Significant touristic development has included the creation of many good accommodation and dining establishments. Lipsi has many nice beaches, the most famous is Platis Gialos, a shallow sandy beach in the northern part of the island with light blue crystal-clear water. 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.
