is situated some 37 kilometers eastern to Chora, at the eastern coast of the island; its natural port serves as the port of Apeiranthos. Numerous people visit the village in summer. The few visitors who decide to stay here are rewarded with a nice and calm environment to live in. The village counts less than 100 permanent residents
A few accommodation facilities are available in the settlement, but you will certainly enjoy eating in the scenic sea front taverns, where you may taste gorgeous local dishes and fresh fish.
You will enjoy swimming at the crystal clear very clean beach in front of the settlement and, if you feel like, you may pop to one of the nearby well organized beaches of the eastern coast.
The settlement itself is worth seeing, but what is more interesting in the area is the remains of an original construction by which they used to bring the emery extracted from the mountain down to the port. The remains are more than a hundred years old. You should also visit the fascinating cove of Azala, with its huge beach and the impressive formations of rocks, the Cape of Moutsouna and the small church of Aghios Demetrios situated at the beach northern to the cove.
At a distance of 8 kilometers southern to Moutsouna it is worth visiting Psili Ammos (“fine sand” in Greek), a very nice summer resort with an excellent sandy beach with fine sand, after which the area has been named. Another 4,5 kilometers to the South you will find the coastal settlement of Kleido, within a small cove, with a nice sandy beach facing the island of Pano Koufonissi. Farer away to the South there is the scenic secluded cove of Panormos, with the nice sandy beach, ideal for those wishing to avoid the popular, crowded and noisy beaches. Once there, you may also see the traces of a prehistoric acropolis situated on a low hill close to the beach.
For any case of emergence you may address to the local Medical Center of Apeiranthos, some 12 kilometers western to Moutsouna, or to the corresponding services of the town of Naxos, 37 kilometers far away to the West of Moutsouna.
Access to Moutsouna is possible via Apeiranthos, by rented or private car and motorbikes. When driving from Apeiranthos down to the settlement and the beach, you should be quite cautious, as the road is full of bends and difficult enough. Despite the difficulties of driving, it is a nice route, which you will enjoy very much. If you reach Moutsouna by boat or yacht, you may use the small port for mooring, but you should bear in mind that no fuel supply facilities are available at the port.
