Moutsouna resort

Once the port to load emery, today a picturesque and quite resort with beautiful sand.

Moutsouna is a successive row of sandy coves and it is a very quiet resort. Moutsouna is historically connected with emery (a dark granular rock comprising corundum, magnetite and other minerals, referred to as “smyrigli” on the island), as the mineral was to brought down to the port from the mountain mines by a rope funicular and loaded onto ships.

It is a quite resort, ideal for those who prefer to stay away from the crowds and who also like to explore the east coast up to the south of Naxos Island (Panermos bay)

South of Moutsouna is Psili Ammos beach and further south (about 24 Km) where the road ends is Panermos Bay with sand and well protected from north winds. Nearest village is Apeiranthos.


Just before Apeiranthos village (28 km from Naxos Town), follow the signs to Moutsouna (11Km from Apeiranthos).


Location: 36 km from Naxos Town via coastal road and 54 km via mainland road
