MYKONOS

Herodotus mentions Carians as the original inhabitants of the island. Ionians from Athens seem to have followed next in the early 11th century BC. There were many people living on the neighbouring island of Delos, only 2 km (1.2 miles) away, which meant that Mykonos became an important place for supplies and transit. It was, however, during ancient times a rather poor island with limited agricultural resources. Its inhabitants were polytheists and worshipped many gods. White and blue, the jewel of the Cyclades, with its dreamy sandy beaches and cosmopolitan character, is the island that never sleeps. It is word famous for its sophisticated nightlife and endless beach parties, all in a backdrop of luxury and azure seas. So, sit back, take in the views and enjoy your cocktail!
