Lionas, Naxos Island

Lionas is a small coastal village, very scenic, situated at the impressive northeastern coast of the island, at a distance of 38 kilometers northeastern to the town of Naxos (Chora) and 6 kilometers from Koronas, also at the northeast. It is from the small port of this village that the emery mined on the island was exported to the industrial centers of Europe. Today the settlement counts some more than 100 permanent residents.

Only a few facilities for accommodation are available in the village, but there are several things worth seeing and the beach is calm and very clean. Some of the houses of the settlement are so close to the sea that the waves almost lick them. After you have enjoyed a nice swimming in a crystal clear turquoise deep sea and sunbathed on the pebbly beach, you will have the chance to taste fresh fish and delicious local dishes at the small sea front taverns of the area.

Once at Lionas, don’t miss to visit the church of Aghios Georgios (St. George); at the Center for the coastal environment, housed at the “tarsanas”, the medieval shipyard, recently renovated, you will get information about the coastal and marine environment and the activities carried out to protect it. At the site “Avdeli”, close enough to the Early Cycladic tombs, you may see the secluded small church of Panaghia Avdeliotissa, dedicated to Virgin Mary. On your way back, before arriving to Koronas, you may visit the Museum of Emery found at the Industrial Park of the Emery mines, see the galleries and learn how mining was carried out during the 19th century.

In case of health problems, a local Medical Center is available at the nearby village of Koronas, some 6 kilometers southwestern to Lionas. For other services you should address to the corresponding services of the town of Naxos, 38 kilometers southwestern to the village.

Access from Chora is possible by private means, car or motorbike.
