Mykonos is part of a cluster of islands including Delos, Rhenia and some rocky islets. Mykonos, already inhabited since the 5th millennium B.C. (prehistoric settlement of Ftelia), has shared with them a long and copious history with them. Its intense tourist and cosmopolitan activity, which has continiously kept Mykonos in the foreground, inevitably reminds us of the cosmopolitan ancient Delos during the period of its commercial peak (Hellenistic-roman period).

Mykonos is located to the area of the central Aegean Sea and belongs to the prefecture of Cyclades. Its total surface is 26.370 acres, while the length of its shores reaches 81 kilometers.
It consists of the municipality of Mykonos. The resident population of the island adds up in 9.320 people according to the census of 2001 (E.S.Y.E.). The highest point of Myconos reaches approximately the 14 kilometers and its widest about 10.
