Lipsi is a small but neat island. Its town and harbor is very attractive and well kept. It seems that many of today’s inhabitants had at one time immigrated to Australia and have now returned. They brought with them a certain amount of affluence and a more cosmopolitan outlook than one would expect on such a small island. The island has a well-protected harbor at the head of an inlet halfway along its southern coast and several good anchorages around its shores. It has a modest tourist trade that has, so far, not altered the island’s quiet and relaxed ambience.
