Accommodation in Moutsouna

 MOUTSOUNA was once the main port for shipping out the emery that was mined in and around the villages of Apiranthos and Koronos - remember emery paper? It was carried down by mule until an aerial runway was built, the remains of which can still be seen.

Emery was replaced by carborundum and the industry died, but parts of the runway remain as a monument to the island's industrial heritage as do the rail tracks that still line the harbour.

Moutsouna is the gateway to the remote east coast beaches of Naxos, a pretty port and one of the few genuine fishing harbours left on Naxos. It is reached by a good, but narrow, twisting and occasionally hair-raising road from Apiranthos and is about 45km from Naxos Town.

It is growing as more visitors use it as a touring centre but has only a few rooms to rent. Pleasant fish tavernas overlook the small east-facing sand beach and the port where the old derricks that were used to swing emery into the waiting boats still stand.

A little to the north, over the headland, is AXALA beach, known for its fine and varied pebbles. To the south are many pretty coves that extend all the way to Psili Ammos
