Things to do in Mykonos
According to the mythology, Mykonos was formed as a result of the "gigantomachy", the battle between the mighty Zeus (Gods Father) and the Giants, whose their petrified corpses shaped the "Island of Winds".
We at Casa Del Mar Mykonos choose to believe the legend above, as we cannot find a more "rational" explanation of how a sensational destination like this arose within the Aegean archipelago.
Leaving the legends behind us, let's give a review of the island and its proposition. Mykonos is located at the centre of Cyclades complex and consequently in the heart of the Greek tourism industry.
