Lipsi is so small that you can get around on foot without the least effort. Traffic is minimal, the island's only police car must make an effort to run out of petrol.

From the summer of 2017 you can rent a car at Lipsi
. Previously, it was only possible to rent a moped and a bike. Just be aware of that there is almost nowhere to drive. Platys Gialos beach - which is furthest away - is just 4 kilometres away, so you might as well walk, or go by bus.

Minibuses drives
at express speed from Lipsi Village to the beaches of Platys Gialos and Katsadia. The bus stop lies at the steps leading up to the main village. Close to the island's only ATM.

If you get lost, you have two taxis to choose from. Phone: 6942409677 or 6942409679.

Margarita. Lipsi.

Margarita - one of the excursion boats.

White Island. Lipsi.

You can go by excursion boat to White Island.

I have done many boat excursions during my countless trips in the Greek archipelago. The best boat excursion, In my opinion, goes around Milos in the Cyclades. You can go on a boat excursion from Lipsi that almost reach the same class as the one that goes around Milos.

Two, or possibly three, boats are available to choose from, all of them make the same tour to the islands of: Makronisi, Aspronisi (White Island), Marathi and Arki. The boats makes stops for swimming at Makronissi and Aspronissi (two small uninhabited islands), and at the lagoon-like bay of Tiganaki outside Arki. After that it is time for lunch and swimming on Marathi which is Greece's least inhabited island.

After a few hours on Marathi the boats continues to Arki where it is a short stop, one have time for a small stroll in the village, and to eat an ice cream or to have a beer or a coffee at one of the tavernas.

Tiganaki bay at Arki.

Excursion boats also goes to Tiganaki bay at Arki.
