This lovely beach is on the little island of Lipsos (or Lipsi) very close to Leros, to the north. This secluded area was a hermitage and a hideout several centuries ago.
The shore is called Assumption (Kimissi)and this must be the 16th century chapel dedicated to the Assumption of Virgin Mary.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Deep blue and green tones water were most attractive when first saw the picture, than red the note and looked at the upper part of the image.
A place to stay away from town's tumult, a beach offers calm and charming scenery.
The mountain slope "falling" to sea, and the trail leading the view to waht looks as a two houses mansion.
Impressive tones in contrast, well done.
Enjoy your weekend,

This small white chapel is located so beautifully and creates an amazing subject for photography! You used this opportunity very well and the scene looks so attractive due to the superb saturation and color contrast. Well done!
Have a nice weekend!

Lovely view of the beach, sea and rock formations in such a pleasant sunlight. The small white chapel is a nice addition too.

Στην Ελλάδα μπορείς να βρες στα πιο απίθανα μέρη τέτοια εκκλησάκια και πάντα είναι συναρπαστικά και πολύ όμορφα. Όπως το συγκεκριμένο που ξεπροβάλει μέσα από τους θάμνους. Υπέροχη θέση δίνοντάς μας πιάτο την θάλασσα με το καταπληκτικό χρώμα της.

Maybe the beach was packed with tourists and covered with sunchairs and umbrellas further to the left, but hopefully it was as secluded as you describe it. It is a beautiful place and at least from here the beach looks comfortably deserted. I can only see one person, maybe waiting for your boat. On several Greek isands I have seen similar very small and very pretty chapels in the strangest places, far from the nearest settlements. I like the naturally saturated tones of blue and green.
Have a nice continued weekend.

J'aimerais beaucoup posséder cette petite chapelle en bord de mer ainsi que cette merveilleuse plage aux eaux translucides. Je la transformerait en maison pour y finir mes jours. Le point de vue est parfait.

This looks like a very secret and very special place, it feels like a privilege to be looking at this place, which I would guess not many get to see, so thanks for sharing it. The azure water is a perfect lead in to this sanctuary hiding among the natural elements here. The path leading up into the mountain also gives fantastic depth to the scene. Magical place.
Thanks as always

Fine view across the Aegean to the beach cove, and white historical chapel hiding in the hillside forest.
Would enjoy sailing here, then resting on the beach.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Ourania, nice shot of this beautiful place to drop anchor and take a swim in the clear waters, very well captured in this interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and good Sunday.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Another lovely composition with beautiful rendering of the vivid colours. The deep blue of the water is particularly eye catching and gives great atmosphere to this picture as well as beautiful contrast with the equally attractive background displayed with fine clarity and details. The small chapel nestled among the rocks and the vegetation is properly highlighted and makes a good point of interest.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
