Coordinates: 035° 29.845' N , 011° 4.073' E
Country: Tunisia


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).


  •  at the end of the central pier of the North basin in front of the police building. Room for two 40 foot yachts 
  • if full then tie up on the outside of the pirate (day trip) boats on the western end of the police building dock. 

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 a 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.


  • water from an unlocked metal door in the front of the police building; good quality; no electricity;
  • fish, meat and vegetable market open everyday, located just north of the fishing harbour;  on Fridays clothing and other stuff market just outside the fishing harbour;  
  • diesel in the fuel dock ;
  • petrol and large household gas bottles from the Shell petrol station to the west just outside the harbour;
  • waste disposal on west side of fishing hall next to the police. 

Don't miss: attractive older quarters are on a peninsula.
