“Nice to look at”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Nice to look at but nothing else going on. The little souvenir store was not open for the 2 days we were there. Being on the beach, it makes for a more beautiful sunset picture opportunity than Oia of Santorini. And the water of this beach is AMAZING

“My Screensaver Shot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This was one of the stops on our Mediterranean cruise. The windmills were a short walk from the cruise ship (10-15 min). As others mentioned, there's nothing to "do" here. You just walk up the hill and get a shot of the island and the windmills. I have the picture of the windmills as my screensaver. Everyone recognizes it's Mykonos immediately!

“Static remakes of the originals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The structures looked very "made-up" - of course, the originals are long gone - but the four standing windmills seemed so stiff, so superficial on the beach front facing the ocean.

“Postcard...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

It is from one of the most popular photos for advertising Mykonos Island. Everyone probably have seen this scene at least once in their life. So it a must to see those windmills in this fact. It is a small place with windmills looking from a hill to sea and Little Venice. It will not take more than 10-15 minutes to visit them. Still a must.

“One of THE Landmarks of Mykonos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

A picture like you find only on postcards. Take a snapshot of this landmark, its worth it. Easy to find, next to little venice, the withe windmills in front and a deep blue sea and sky behind - what a scenery.
