Donoussa is a beautiful small island in the southeastern Cyclades, situated 10 miles north of Amorgos and east of Naxos. The island is 14 square kilometers and has a diameter of almost 5.5 kilometers. Gray steep cliffs plunge into the sea creating a spectacular scenery both with white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue waters.
From the top of the mountain at the village of "Stavros" at the church of "Panagitsa" you can enjoy the sunset and leave all your worries behind.
According to ancient Greek mythology the island took its name from the god Dionysus, who lived on this island. Theseus and Ariadne stopped at Donoussa, which was then called “Zeus” when returning from Crete. Dionysus saw Ariadne and fell in love instantly. That is why the goddess Athena ordered Theseus to obey Dionysus and leave Ariadne on the island. So the fate of Ariadne was to become the inseparable wife of Dionysus.
