4. Petros the Pelican
Dont forget to meet the Petros when you visit here. You can find him at the waterfront or sometimes in the town.
Originally the pelican was found wounded off the coast of Paranga shore after a storm back in the 1950s by a local fisherman. The pelican was nursed to health and remained on the island supported by locals. It soon adopted the name “Petros”. To great disappointment by locals and tourists alike, Petros was hit by a car on 2 December 1985 and failed to recover. After Petros died in 1986 he was so popular that a new pelican was introduced as a successor. Now there are three pelicans inhabiting the island.
5. Beaches in Mykonos
Do not forget to spend some quality time at the Beaches when you travel to Mykonos. Most of the beaches have tavernas and restaurants and are well equipped with deck chairs and parasols.
Most common price at the beaches is € 12 for a set of two deck chairs and an umbrella. The best beaches are on the south side of the island and sheltered from the prevailing northern wind.
On the more popular beaches, it is not uncommon for people to walk down the beach selling probably illegal goods such as DVDs, fake bags, clothes, jewellery and watches. They come right up to you and it can be somewhat annoying but they are easily pushed away with a simple ‘No, thank you’.
Many beaches, even the more family-orientated, are often populated with the ‘european’ style of sunbathing for example topless or on other words nude beach.
