Lipsi are a cluster of islets in Dodecanese, located north of Leros and east of Patmos. Their name is taken from the name of the largest island, Lipsi or Lipsos, which consists of two land masses, joined together by a narrow 400m wide neck. Around the main island, 24 islets and 6 rocky peaks make up an impressive island group.
It is a tranquil small island and that's why it is an ideal place for anyone wishing to spend peaceful holidays.
The island's unique settlement is located roughly around the center of the island, deep along the well-protected bay bearing the island's name. Behind the port is the picturesque town of Lipsi with its white washed houses and blue shutters.
On Lipsi, the monuments belonging to the early Christian period are of importance. These are a large three-chambered basilica with mosaic flooring and a baptistery, possibly of the 5 th century, situated at Kouselio, remnants of walls, architectural remains and mosaic floors at Katsadia, where today are located the churches of Saint Spyridon and Saint Panteleimon.
Famous beaches of the island: Kyra Vasilena, Katsadia Bay, Chochlakoura, Monodendri, Platis Gialos, Tourkomnima, Xirokampos.
