The most popular Greek Island in the Aegean Sea is all about energy and cosmopolitan life. During the day some privacy can be had in the more secluded north beaches, but the south beaches are all party. Ski, jet-ski, windsurf, horseback ride, parasail or just save up your energy for the evening ahead, like most of your fellow travelers in Mykonos .

 


According to mythology, Heracles defeated in one of his twelve actions some giants, which he threw into the sea. When they petrified, it says that the island of Mykonos arised.  And did you know that the island was named after Apollo's grandson Mykons.
In antiquity, the neighboring island of Delos which was only 2 km away was an important cultural and religious center
According to tradition, it was forbidden there, to be born or to die. Therefore, it seems likely that many people travelled frequently between the two islands.
