The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

4.0
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.

  • Be ready for extreme winds at the appropriate location of the windmills. I consider the winds there a personal diva fan for that "wind blown" look. The view from the windmills is a lovely overlook to Little Venice. Try to go early to avoid all the crowds in your photos.
  • Wondering how nice it should be if it was less crowded?... For the rest try the whole of the island for at least 3 days. Lovely an calm time on fall.
  • Nice place to visit, try to avoid days of cruise ships in town. On Thursday is usually less crowded and therefore better day to snap your next popular IG photo. The place would benefit if the area around the windmills had some better access and sidewalks or even landscaping. There is also a Windmills Museum.
  • Great place to watch the sun set. Always busy with other tourists. Near to the bars of Little Venice. There’s also a car park at the back with free parking, very handy if you’re going into Mykonos town
  • Always very picturesque sunsets at night, although a bit crowded. Better photographs of the windmills themselves can be taken from the lower level called Little Venice. Travel a little further down through Little Venice to come out into the harbour where you will have amazing views of the houses on the hillside, the old and new ports, and of Little Venice itself.
