Day 4: Patmos - Leipsoi

Route from Bodrum to the northern islands of the Dodecanese

Leipsoi

The name “Leipsoi” belongs both to a whole archipelago in the Aegean Sea, as well as to its largest and only populated island. Leipsoi’s landscape is similar to that of neighbouring Patmos and Leros with mountainous, rocky locales, a shoreline dotted with coves, and pristine, secluded beaches. There’s just one city here, also called Leipsoi. You’ll find it nestled along a convenient bay, perfect for mooring yachts. The depth is more than enough for free navigation.

The island is sprinkled with so many churches that the locales joke it’s almost as if each family had their own. The most notable of these are the Byzantine church of the Holy Mother of God, the cathedral of St. John the Apostle, the cathedral of the Dormition of the Holy Mother of God, and the church of the Mother of God in the village of Kuselio.

The island’s beaches are also popular: Kambos, Elena, and Lientu near the city of Leipsoi, Khokhlakura just four miles away, the wild Platis Yalos, the calm-water Catsadia, and windy Turkomnima.
