This is one of most beautiful and interesting place in Bodrum, but tourists are deteriorating this place. They spread garbage all over the place, which actually spoils the beauty of this place. These windmills are built with stone that are lined with wooden planks to catch the coastal winds. These windmills are now a days, neglected, due to less tourism... More

From here there is a wonderful vantage point on paver the city with the castle in the harbour area below. You can see beyond to the Black Island where we were advised no one is allowed to live, just visit. The windmills themselves are in various stages of ruin with some badly vandalised by graffiti which is a shame. There... More

Interesting seeing them close up, but area full of garbage and some broken glass - not the most appealing site. View of the city was alright. Took some pics and that was about it.

There is not much to see here. The windmill does offer a few good snaps but well, we all know how a windmill works so nothing much to see except the scenic view from it. Plus the shards of glass around it make it a very unsafe area. Just go if you have time. No need to take out time... More

nice views to be had near the windmills and great place to take a few snaps. Very little information available on site about them. Be careful when walking around as there was a lot of broken glass and got the impression that this was where they local teens hung out after dark. Shame about the grafitti on some of the... More

We found these by accident as we took a wrong turn trying to drive out of Bodrum centre! There's not much left of the windmills but they were nice to see and the views across Bodrum on one side and Bitez on the other are amazing. It was very windy up there so hold onto your hats! There's a little... More
