Lipsi Island Takes Initiatives to Meet the Needs of Tourists

LIPSI, GREECE – Two new projects for the remote island of the goddess Calypso were inaugurated by the municipality of Lipsi amidst the new tourist season, thus aspiring to satisfy the increased needs of the island's visitors.

The most recent one was completed on Saturday, July 25 and concerns the creation of the appropriate infrastructure, so that one of the most popular beaches of the island, the beach of Liendo located just 5 minutes from the port, is accessible to disabled people, a project that will contribute significantly to improving the living conditions of the inhabitants with disabilities but also of the tourists of Lipsi. The project was co-funded by the European Union and from national resources, following actions by the municipality in collaboration with the Management Organisation Unit (MOU) of the Ministry for Development and Investment.

The second important recent project concerns the new autonomous ecological street lighting, which for the first time on a nationwide scale was installed in Lipsi.

"The quality of the people of a place concerns the way they treat their weaker fellow citizens but also the environment," said the mayor of Lipsi, Fotis Maggos, who announced the intention of the municipality for new creative actions in the future for the environment and vulnerable groups.
