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.

  • What's a visit to Mykonos without seeing the windmills. They have been nicely restored and are so majestic up on the hill with the ocean setting behind.

  • 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.
