Anyone visiting Bodrum bay will see the old windmills on the skyline . In the last few years they have been fully renovated and are worth a visit ,a sight of old working Turkey .

Windmills from the fairy tale! They can be seen from different sides, so cute on the hilltop; I saw them even from the yacht returning to Bodrum Marina after boat trip. Look picturesque and nice. A symbol of a place.

The wind mills are in really bad shape. I walked the hill from Azka and was very disappointed. they have been trashed and vandalized. It is a good place for a picnic though.

Lovely features of the landscape. Look great from afar. Not so pretty up close - not so well protected from the vandals. View from the hills where they stand is pretty spectacular.

The edge of asphalt road that goes to wind mills gives you an opportunity to see Bodrum, Bardakci and Gumbet bay almost birdview on the same time.
