Create an itinerary including The Windmills (Kato Milli)
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.

  • The iconic spot in Mykonos. That provides a great view of Little Venice. There are lots of people but it doesn’t feel crowded like the town. Good spot for pictures.

  • Seeing the windmills in Mykonos is a must, but really only for the beautiful views and photos that you will get. Plus it gives you a chance to wind around the tiny streets of Mykonos exploring a little as you make your way there. There is a small and overpriced gift shops (there are a 1000 other identical ones throughout the town) and one of the Windmills can be explored for a small fee. We found some shade at the far end and enjoyed the gentle breeze and the people watching.
  • This is the perfect picture spot in Mykonos! The windmills look amazing and it's also a really nice place to find some share and get shelter from the sun. Near the first windmill there's also a souvenir shop which sells more unique things than other shops in the old town so I would recommend checking it out. Also there are a few places around that sell water so stock up here instead of going somewhere more expensive!
  • Very windy, fine place to watch sunset. It will get crowded when sun is setting so go a little early if you want a nice picture with the windmills. Parking looked like a nightmare (which may be normal for busy Mykonos) but I walked there so I didn't have to deal with that! Right up the hill from little Venice.
  • A perfect picture & chill place in Mykonos. You get the view of the sea, windmills, and while Mykonos. Another spot for a sunset. There is a good size parking lot as well as kids play area nearby.
  • This was my second visit to Mykonos and it's windmills. (The first time I wandered through the port and discovered the windmills serendipitously. This time I walked directly to the windmills to share them with my daughter and granddaughter.) The windmills are picturesque; I consider them a must see on Mykonos.
