Peter the Pelican – The Superstar of Mykonos!

One of the highlights for the travellers to Mykonos has always been Peter the Pelican.

Some are fortunate enough to see him walking in the narrow alleys and others no matter how hard they look for him are never lucky enough. As the locals say, Petros avoids the chaos and the noise and stays “hidden” in his favourite spots for the most part of the peak season.

But for us that our most recent visit to Mykonos was off season, things were totally different. Petros not only appeared in all the little streets bragging that Mykonos was his, but also paraded at the seaside promenade and stood to pose for all the people around to photoshoot him.

This is what we definitely call a real celebrity!

But Mykonos has also Fraskoula and Zanis!!!
