It is worth having a look at the windmills but they look nothing like the pictures, but the views from the top of the hill is worth the walk up there.

Great views from the top but the area around is a bit scrubby but it does have the obligatory water, beer, snack shack. All but one of the Windmills are pretty much derelict. Don't know if they're being restored or or going to be restored...More

From our hotel we could see the windmill buildings at the top of the hill being us, it doesn't look too steep - but when its over 40 degrees weather it takes a bit of getting to. There are a couple of paths that can...More

very nice view to the Bodum and beautiful sunset. The windmills are poorly maintained but worth a visit.

Im glad we had brief hire of a moped as if I had walked up the mountain purely to see the windmills I'd have been underwhelmed. They are mostly derelict, graffitti and rubbish everywhere. The view is amazing but the windmills unfortunately aren't.

Wow, what a waste and an insult to the cities past. I guess because these were "greek" ideas, the city government doesn't want to do any up keep on these ruins. If you've been to Mykonos and seen the windmills there, you are in for...More

We walked up the hill to this beautiful place, there is an amazing view over Gümbet and Bodrum, although it's such a shame how (young!?) people are totally trashing this place! Don't forget to sit and enjoy a nice cool freshly squezzed orange juice at...More

Not far away from Bodrum city center, like 2 km, this location is excellent to get a fantastic view of the bay as well as the close-by islands. Most of the windmills are in terrible shape... however the views compensate it. Sadly, the place around...More
