No need to pay any tour operator to visit these beautiful windmills, they are within walking distance from the cruise ship pier. We were there on a beautiful sunny day and it was not the crowded so we were able to get some great pictures. (Hint, go there early before everyone else does!). It's a nice little walk through town... More

Made famous by its windmills, Mykonos is not only the name of the island but also the main town on it. In this port, our ship should have docked, but set up a tender operation instead, and this meant no shuttle service was required. This dropped passengers on the edge of the town, adjacent to the tiny church of St... More

Point of reference of the island, it accumulates too many tourists to take pictures mainly and has too much air. It overlooks the little Venice. If you visit Mykonos certainly will have to leave from there with a souvenir photograph of their mills.

The wind mills are very traditional and simply amazing. They give a nice view of the entire city and good feel of the historical Mykonian life-style. Nice point for taking pics and enjoying the view!

Most tour guides offer this as an atraction but really if you go to mykonos center you always end up bumping into the mills, they are not big and you cant go in so I would say its not worth paying for

A perfect destination place. Have absolutely no words to express. The ambience of the place resembles very similar to each other. Every house is painted white in colour with a blue roof top. One thing that you can enjoy out here is their handcrafted Gyros. It is a flat bread stuffed with fries sour cream and grilled chicken. You can... More

After enjoying the clubs at little Venice, we were walking back to our ATV parked down the street and were walking past the windmills. We decided to stop and sit on the walls around the windmills and the dark view over the ocean with the low light at the windmills made for a perfect way to enjoy a couple beers... More

If you are keen to take photos with these symbolic windmills, fine. But bare in mind that you have to spend a lot of physical effort under the sun to reach there.. Plus, they are typical Aegean type windmills.

The windmills are one of the islands most popular landmarks and are located in the western part of town. About a twenty minute walk from the dock. These windmills date to the 16th century when Mykonos was a great producer of wheat and bread. At one time there were 20 windmills, now there are 10 and 7 have been preserved.... More
