The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

The Windmills (Kato Milli) are the first thing approaching ships see on arrival to Mykonos. Many of the windmills were constructed by the Venetians in the 16th century. From the time they were built until the mid-20th century, these structures fueled the local economy by grinding wheat. Although the mills' grinding days are over, they remain much loved by the locals. Just below this spot you'll find cafes and restaurants that serve local fare where you can admire a view of the windmills and the sea. Although you cannot enter the windmills, you can approach them for photographs.

  • Brisk walk out from Little Venice, up the hill and the windmills are to the right. They're quite pretty, but they are NOT a 5 star review attraction. Ignore the 5 star reviews. The first windmill can be entered of you pay a donation to the man who owns it. The other windmills are privately owned and not accessible. There's nothing to do here. It's a dead end, backing onto a dusty car park with derelict vehicles. The windmills are pretty, but looking at the views you'll also notice the high volumes of litter too. Walk up, get your photos, leave.
  • Nice landscape to take pics of amateur with. Really nice and popular spot for sunset shots. Come early to get a good spot for this.
  • The windmills look really good from far but when you get close to it, it doesn’t have much to see. It has a nice view of the sea and the town of Mykonos Chora and little Venice.
  • probably the best place to take photos of sunset..its makes a good photo to get the windmill and sunset together.
  • Loving the windmills and loving the amazing view! Best time to come here is the sunset - don't miss it

Where to stay in Mykonos Town

For proximity to the town's best cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs, stay in the charming neighborhood of Little Venice, which overlooks the water and offers options ranging from party hostels to comfortable guesthouses. For something more luxurious and quieter, look towards the top of the hill at the back of town, where you'll enjoy premium views and spacious hotel suites with swimming pool access.
