Island of the Winds
Local tradition claims that Mykonos, the trendiest of the Cyclades group of islands, came into existence from the petrified bodies of giants killed by the mythological hero Hercules.

Be prepared for hip and loud dance clubs along the coastline and quieter areas farther from the water.
