If you really want to see a windmill, you need to go to Holland or Mykanos, where they actually work and have canvas hung on the spines of the windmill. This is a tourist attraction that I would not make a special trip for. There is truly nothing scenic about the location. At the Jersey Shore there is a restaurant... More

Why not stop by and say you actually saw an old Dutch Windmill. Easy parking or just a short walk. Cute picture spot for families

The windmill is a nightclub, closes at 6 am.... We had pancakes for lunch at the next door Pancake Place. Friendly staff and good, tasteful pancakes. Children's pancakes were nicely done. The place definitely has a nice Dutch touch. Our plates were empty and clean when we left! Not much else going on: it seemed very quiet.

The Mill can be seen from the road near the high rise resorts. We had breakfast one morning at Diana's Pancake place on the same property. There is not much to the Mill other than a stop to take a few pictures. After a week on the beach this is something to say you saw.

Now a landmark in ARUBA this wooden windmill was shipped over from Holland, several decades ago. The dark pink and white windmill is now situated as you approach the hi rise area of the hotels on the island. Great for photos!

It was a great place for a cool picture, it isn't bad, but in person, it is kind of smalltime. It is on a somewhat desolate road and is in front of a hotel that is pretty run down.

I guess if you're looking for a cool picture, it isn't bad, but in person, it is kind of rinkydink. It is on a somewhat desolate road and is in front of a hotel that is pretty run down.
