Getting to Lipsi
Where is Lipsi? The island lies at the northern end off the Dodecanese group, close to the coast of Turkey and south-west of the large holiday island of Samos.
Lipsi is a tiny island and has no airport so ferries are the only way to get there. Fortunately, it's on the regular route of the Dodekanisos Seaways' catamarans so it gets regular ferry services and there are also connections to the clutch of local islands that include Patmos, Leros and Samos.
Despite being very small, the roads on the Lipsi are remarkably good thanks to some generous EU cash. Holiday visitors have only a few beaches to choose from but they are all very pleasant, quiet and the main beaches have good tavernas.
There is a good amount of accommodation on Lipsi given its small size but it is not wise to turn up without a reservation in summer.
