The Windmills make for a nice view from the island but the area around it is not very well kept considering it is a big tourist attraction. There are many places like little italy around the windmills for having a good meal or drinks.

Although the windmills are no longer in operation they are still worth a look at. They are absolutely huge! And quite fascinating. The view over Mykonos is quite beautiful from the windmills.

Yes, there are hordes of tourists if you don't get there early, and the unkempt parking area behind the windmills is disappointing. But the windmills themselves made me forget all of the rest! My husband and I both loved the photo ops of the windmills, water, sights of the town and our ship in the harbor, gorgeous blue skies. This... More

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.

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.
