Moutsouna is a quaint fishing village on the eastern coast of the island.
Until the early 1980s, Moutsouna was the port from which the mined deposits of emery were loaded in boats and exported. The emery was mined up the mountain in Apiranthos and was transported to the port by an aerial cableway.
The cableway and the remains of the transfer station in Moutsouna can still be seen today.
In recent years Moutsouna has begun to develop as a tourist resort due to its intrinsic beauty and its coves found along the entire south-eastern coast as far as Panormos. This tranquil village has some excellent seaside taverns offering delicious Naxian cuisine.
Moutsouna is the ideal place to stay to explore the eastern island. Book early though as availability is limited.
The sights of the wider area include the old cableway, the Archaeological and Folklore Museum in Apeiranthos, two towers of the Venetian period and Byzantine chapels. Finally, south of Moutsouna, are the beaches of Psili Ammos and Klidos. These tranquil beaches are ideal for those seeking a relaxing holiday away from the crowds, and boast crystal clear waters and panoramic views of the Small Cyclades.
You will discover that Moutsouna is one of the most charming areas of Naxos.
