Windmills, Bodrum City

1.6
#3 of 11 in Sightseeing in Bodrum City
Landmark Tourist Spot
Climb the hill above the town to reach Windmills, which date back to the 18th century. Nestled high above the crowded streets and hotels, this secluded spot features seven windmills in varying states, ranging from eerie and crumbling to newly restored. The locals used them until the 1970s, after which they were left at the mercy of wind, rain, and frost. On a clear day you should be able to see Bodrum, Gumbet, and even the Greek island of Kos from the site. Be aware that the area surrounding the mills can be a bit run-down. Our Bodrum City tourist route planner makes visiting Windmills and other Bodrum City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Bodrum City

The expansive area of Bodrum City and its seaside coast offer much in the way of accommodations--at any price point. The city's main attraction, the castle, seems to yield budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses in the immediate area; expect dense crowds enjoying the animated nightlife here. An array of four-star hotels and resorts hug the curves of the coastline and continue farther west of the city core. If you prefer more luxurious lodging, seek out the handful of five-star resorts located slightly inland and a little bit southeast of the city core.
