Kelibia is a busy fishing harbour and a suitable port of refuge when en-route between Malta, Pantelleria, Sicily or Sardinia. It is a useful harbour from which to clear out of Tunisia
- you must check-in even if you have already been cleared into Tunisia;
- watch out for fishing nets at the exit, on the right.
Moor: entrance is straightforward and the port offers good shelter in almost all conditions There is only a small section of the dock for visitors and most of the space is taken up by local boats. The harbour master will try hard to find a place for you to berth, and assist with docking, including moving other boats to make room.
- You will probably raft upon the visitor's pontoon.
- it might be possible to dock along the south breakwater/quay just east of the fuel station; the wall is rough and can cause damage to your boat especially in strong northerlies.
- DO NOT moor on the space reserved for Guarde National and even though you might be encouraged to tie up there. You will have to move when the Guarde National boat returns (at any hour).
Ashore: NO water or electricity (possible to negotiate the additional cost for water and electricity). Small shops located just outside the marina selling fruits and vegetables and a market in town. A 100 ton travel lift, which might be available for emergency repairs; basic marine repair shop supplies geared to the fishing fleet.
Don't miss: climb to the fort for good views of the bay.
