Moutsouna

Moutsouna

The seaside village of Moutsouna is located on the eastern coast of Naxos. The beach, located the in front of the village, is one of the most beautiful beaches of Naxos.

In the late 19th century until the 1950s, Moutsouna was intertwined with the emery deposits of the island. In particular, this period was a high-growth mining emery from the mountains of Apeiranthos. Moutsoúna was the port area for export of minerals. The transportation of minerals from emery mines to the port was made by Enaerios. Enaerios is a funicular ore transport built in the early 20th century. Today is out of order and it has been declared as one of the most impressive technology - industrial monuments of Greece.

The development of the village in recent years follows the Cycladic trend and is now linked to tourism. The tranquility of the settlement with small number of rooms to let and taverns on the edge of the wave are ideal conditions for the selection of the area as a place of residence for exploring the eastern island. The attractions of the region include apart from Enaerios, the Archaeological and Folklore Museum in Apiranthos, the two towers of the Venetian period and Byzantine churches. Finally, south of Moutsouna, are located the beaches Psili Ammos and Kleidos. These beaches are ideal for those who seek relaxing holidays and they are characterized by clear waters and panoramic views of the Small Cyclades.
