World famous Mykonos is one of the most touristy and most popular islands in the Cyclades, and in all of Greece. It is known for both its natural beauty, which includes gorgeous sandy beaches, and a vivid lifestyle that offers something to suit any taste, with plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars, and high-quality touristic infrastructure. Numerous celebrities spend part of their vacation on the island every year. Mykonos is closely associated with Delos, a small rocky island just 2 nautical miles southwest of it, in the center of the Cyclades. According to myth, Delos is the birthplace of the god Apollo (Delian Apollo). It was a religious, cultural, and commercial center of the eastern Mediterranean for more than 500 years, and in 1990 Delos was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
