Naxos Moutsouna

Information about Moutsouna

Moutsouna Naxos: Moutsouna is a small fishing village on the eastern coast of the island. At the small port of Moutsouna, many fishing boats moor in summer and give a picturesque atmosphere. This port was used for the transport of marble from the marble quarries of Koronos-Apiranthos. There the marble was loaded in boats and was transported to Athens or other islands.

The region of Moutsouna is dotted by beautiful secluded beaches with clean water, such as Psili Ammos, Klidos, and Ligarida. These beaches are frequently affected by winds, which make them nice windsurfing spots. Next to the port of Moutsouna, there is also a small sandy beach to enjoy some relaxing moments.

    Small village nice food nice people
    Moutsouna is beyond small. It looks more like a model. Miniature port, one boat, few restaurants... But the food was very, very awesome and the hosts pleasant and funny. Complete stripe of restaurants is like a small, funny village.
    As for Moutsouna beach, there is no beach there. It's literally two square meters of sand next to restaurant chairs, so it's not really a place to swim. :)
