Even if you’re not a history buff, you’ll probably be amazed to know that Mykonos was named after its namesake hero, “Mykons” who was no less than a descendent of Dionysus, god of wine, merrymaking and ecstasy. With such an ancestor, it is no wonder then, that contemporary Mykonos is a bacchanalian party paradise. Rent a villa in Mykonos and experience its trademark 24 hour, non stop fun!
How would you fancy rubbing shoulders with international celebrities and movie stars? Ever since Queen Frederica’s Royal cruise to the Greek islands in the 50’s, the world’s glitterati have been flocking to Mykonos for a spot of fun under the sun. Leonardo Di Caprio, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jon Bon Jovi and their likes notwithstanding, Mykonos’ brightest shining star is no other than Petros the Pelican: As the story goes, following its rescue from a raging storm, the wounded animal was named in honor of a local WW2 hero, and soon became the darling of early Mykonos fanatic, Jackie O. What’s more, allegedly after his demise, she donated another pelican to the island to make up for the original Petros’s loss; henceforth instituting a tradition which continues up to today. Nowadays the descendant of Petros keeps on roaming on Chora’s whitewashed streets, forever posing next to the planet’s Lindsay Lohans.
Yet a picture with the aforementioned adorable creature (and/or celebrities!) is not your only opportunity to dazzle on instagram and snapchat. With its whitewashed cube houses, iconic windmills and bouganvilla clad streets, the whole of the main town is a maze of photo-worthy nooks and crannies. Same goes for the island’s paradise-like beaches, each and every one boasting crystal clear waters and golden sand. Then there are the glorious Mykonian sunsets, attracting their fair share of aspiring photographers. So this summer -or spring- rent a villa in Mykonos; make this most photogenic island your base; and start playing around with your camera’s potential!
