The Myth.

Mykonos, the Hero, was the grandson of Apollo and gives his name to the island which, as myth has it, was formed from the fossilised bodies of giants defeated by Hercules. (Some say that it is the rock with which Poseidon slew the giants.) The islands of Andros and Thassos were named after Mykonos' two sons.

The Fact.

Mykonos, today, is a bustling, cosmopolitan, tourist island with a reputation as the gay capital of Greece. While this may be true, there is much more going on in the Island which might be more interesting to those who want to spend a few days in an intriguing, mysterious location. Let me take you to "The Other Side of ... Mykonos" in true Greek fashion.
