Windmills in Bodrum (Where? History, What to Expect?)

The windmills of Bodrum are famous landmarks of the whole Bodrum Peninsula. They are mostly situated on top of a hill between central Bodrum and nearby holiday resort Gumbet, overlooking the beautiful Bodrum Bay on one side and Gumbet Bay on the other side.

What to See?

You can visit the windmills on the hills and enjoy the stunning views of the Bodrum and Gumbet bays. Also make a hike or cycling tours.


There are seven windmills in the region. They were used from the 18th century till 1970s. The conditions of the windmills are not well but it worth a visit and see the panoramic views of the peninsula, and take pictures.

On the top, visitors are able to see and enjoy Bodrum, Gumbet and also the Greek island of Kos. The scenery and panorama is spectacular, especially at nights.

It is a beautiful place to take photographs. There is also a small stand for having drinks.


In addition there are also ruins of three windmills near the Yalikavak resort, on the northwest of the Bodrum peninsula.
