A big 5-star resort with large well managed marina and no backsheesh demands. This is a good place to stop if heading westwards and fighting N/NW winds. With one hour away from Tunis international airport is a popular wintering ashore or afloat, and a good base from which to explore Tunisia. Fees higher than the marinas further south but discounts are available for longer stays.
Warning: you must check-in even if you have already been cleared into Tunisia. Watch out for an old underwater shipwreck. Some petty theft.
Moor: on arrival go alongside the reception dock (port-side of the entrance past the fuel dock, by control tower) and then go to the office (24 hours).
740 berths; Max LOA: 40 m; max draught: 6 m.
