Port of Moutsouna - This quaint small port gave me the feeling of being in a black and white movie... I mean it’s a fantastic place to be at because it really takes you back in time. All the old abandoned machinery at the entrance to the village and at the small pier really sets off the “old movie” scenery.
Getting there was a bit of an adventure. Lots of winding roads and the climb up the mountain to Apiranthos and down the other side is nothing short of spectacular! My kids got kind of queasy in the tummy on the trip. It was nothing serious and I bet it has to do with my driving. Exploring the old machinery on the quay was a good reward for them. At this point, I must tell you that there were not many families with young children at Moutsouna, except for the local families. That was a real pity. Don’t be afraid, take your children there, they will adore the place.
A great plus was eating really good food under the shade of the trees, having a fantastic sea view! The deep fried calamari and the tzatziki along with the cold Mythos beer made my day. The children ate as many fresh fried potatoes as they could. What was really unexpected was that they tasted the small fish (locals call it atherina) and they loved it, even after I explained to them that it was the whole fish, head and bones! When it comes to food, I don’t know why they give me such a hard time at home. Go figure …
All and all, it was a great full day tour which we intend to do again and again and again.
