A very active and modern fishing port with no marina. Lampedusa island, Italy, is about 60nm east.
Warning: you must check-in even if you have already been cleared into the Tunisia. Watch out for small fishing vessels, fishing nets and fish farms (shown on chart).
The depth of the water in the middle of the dock is around 2.8 metres but to the east is more than 3.6 m. The ledge along the length of the dock just above high water mark (approximately 20cm) can be hazardous in strong southerlies. Use large fenders or use the anchor to hold off the quay.
The police building is manned 24 hours a day and this is a secure place to leave your boat.
Don't miss: attractive older quarters are on a peninsula.
