Mykonos owes its name to the son of the King of Delos. According to the mythology, Hercules, in one of his twelve tasks, killed the Giants and threw them into the sea where they petrified and turned into huge rocks, forming the island of Mykonos.

During ancient times, Mykonos, due to its proximity to Delos, which was then highly populated, became very important as a supply island.
The short 2-kilometer distance between the islands was frequently travelled, since religious rules specified that no one should be born or die on Delos. During the '50s, modern-day tourism started to grow, along with the island's population, but it was in the following two decades of the '60s and the '70s that, thanks to the likes of Jackie O and numerous other jetsetters, the island was turned into one of the most cosmopolitan holiday resorts of the Mediterranean, if not of the world.

Today Mykonos is the most famous island in Greece, synonymous with sophisticated vacations and wild night-long parties, amazing natural beauties and exceptional character.
