Lipsi, or Lipsoi as it is sometimes spelt, is one of the smaller islands found at the northern end of the Dodecanese chain that runs up the west coast of Turkey.
It lies between the larger islands of Kalymnos and Samos and benefits greatly from a very large and deep natural harbour and also from being on a main ferry route.
Potential visitors can dismiss all the outdated reports of 'donkey-powered' Lipsi which suggest there is no motor traffic on the island.
Visitors will be dodging scooters and cars, not donkeys, since the island's roads were improved thanks to generous dollops of EU cash.
The large harbour has undergone a major revamp to accommodate the many visiting summer yacht flotillas that now make Lipsi a must-visit stopover on any Greek boating holiday route.
Lipsi island itself is very small - visitors can walk to virtually any of the beaches and back for a day's sunbathing and it is now crossed with a network of roads and trails.
The beaches are mainly shingle and sand and all are no more than a narrow waterside strip but all are in walking distance of the main port.
Lipsi has all the oodles of charm and the backwater atmosphere that many Greek holiday visitors expect from the smaller, out-of-the-way Greek islands.
If it's peace and tranquillity you are after, or fancy yourself as a boat skipper, then Lipsi could be top of on your Greek holiday shortlist.
