In Greek mythology Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Titans , and the island was named in honor of Apollo’s grandson Mykons. Today Mykonos is one of the most popular islands in Greece, mostly known for its beaches and intense nightlife. Tourism’s seeds were planted shortly after World War I and by the mid 1950s this little island spot was transformed into a cosmopolitan and artistic center. Aristotle Onassis and the jet set crowd brought glamour to Mykonos in the 1960s, when a burgeoning gay scene had given the island a hedonistic reputation. The party in Mykonos can go from Sunset to Sunrise whether you are on the beach or in Mykonos Town, however this island paradise offers much more than dancing on the bar. Mykonos is definitely a must for the both the young and the young at heart.

Mykonos beaches cover the entire spectrum from sleepy coves with small fish taverns to those that look more like a cover of a fashion magazine featuring a nightclub environment with house music & drinks flowing under the Aegean Sun. If you are looking for solitude and not too many people try Fokos Mersini Beach and for the trendier crowd go to Elia beach. If however, you are looking for the premier party spot then do not look further than Super Paradise Beach.
