About the Location
The location of the Super Rockies Resort is ideal to make the most of your Mykonos visit! …a few minutes from the Super Paradise beach!
Just a few minutes walking distance from Super Paradise beach, the Super Rockies Resort is at a comfortable distance from beach activity. The beach has varying character during the day.

The History Behind The Location
More about Mykonos’s geography, history and tradition
Mykonos in ancient greek mythology
Mykonos is part of a group of Greek islands in the Aegean Sea known as the Cyclades: Santorini, Naxos, Paros, Koufonisia, Tinos, Syros, Delos, Rinea.
This cosmopolitan hot spot is named after Mykonos, the descendant of mythical king of Delos, Anias, son of Apollo, god of light, and the nymph Rio, daughter of Dionysus Dionysus, the god of wine and merry.
According to the myth, the island’s the peculiar rock formations are petrified debris of the Giants’ remains, scattered onto the island’s surface by Hercules after he’d dealt with them in one of his feats.
Orthodox traditions of the island
Greek Easter Holiday celebrations offer an experience of tradition and religious sanctity. During the Holy Week, the orthodox church proposes a seven-day fasting and churches all over the island practice the eastern religious proceedings uniting the Christians in prayer.
Just so that one doesn’t forget the true energy of the island Easter Sunday is celebrated excessively by locals and visitors alike, feasting on lamb on the spit, wining and non-stop partying the Mykonos way!
As per Christian tradition, each church is devoted to a saint, on the nameday of whom celebrations (a “panigiri”) are organised. If you’re lucky enough, you might just fall upon local celebrations with local musicians with traditional instruments and group dances, so as to centre into the profound energy of the land.
