When we reached the windmills, we were more impressed with the site than with the actual windmills. Clearly, they are situated here because of the strong winds that blow over the island. It is worth the climb up to the site and to learn about the function of the windmills in the past, but also to capture the beautiful of... More

Aside from being the iconic symbol of Mykonos and a photo opportunity there is nothing special about the windmills. I can tell you that it is a good place to watch the sunset but it doesnt compare to the sunsets at Santorini.

Even though the iconic windmills are unique to Mykonos sadly they do not rate highly on the "must see" while on the island. The windmills are perched on a hilltop overlooking the harbour & walking distance from LittleVenice. None of the windmills are functioning - would be nice if at least one was in working condition - after all, they... More

These iconic windmills is unique to Mykonos. Easily viewed from the cruise ship, it is picture perfect and blends well with the rest of the scenery.

Lovely place to visit, did this while on a cruise and were not disappointed. Set on a hill overlooking the harbour and fishing village. it was like a setting out of a film, the houses were all white with mainly blue doors and windows. the water was crystal clear, people friendly.

A nice spot for walk and for those who want to practice the art of photography! Idyllic scenery during sunset.

A true icon of Mykonos, the windmills are a must see before you head off to little Venice or the beaches. They have so much history and are really cool to see. I highly recommend a visit. they are very impressive and a great photo opportunity.

Mykonos is known for its windmills and have become an icon for the town of Chora. Not a big time killer but still nice for a family photo as a momentum of the visit to Mykonos. None in working order anymore but still a traditional part of the island to visit.

Visited the windmills on a very very windy day but was worth it. Went there the last day. They are well kept. Parking available

The windmills are an iconic part of Mykonos town situated on the hillside, looking out to sea. Walking up from Little Venice they look very impressive. As you get closer, you quickly notice that all but one in a state of disrepair. What you have to remember is that the windmills are old, not functioning and a symbol of days... More
