What To Expect
It is particularly known for jasmine, and this is how the tourist resort of Yasmine Hammamet got its name. All over Hammamet, souvenirs made of jasmine can be found. It is also a popular destination for swimming and water sports due to its beaches.
The quiet town of Nabeul lies 18km north of Hammamet and is considered the capital administrative city of Cap Bon, the Nabeul Governorate. The history of the town goes back to the Roman times, when it was called 'Neapolis'.
Widely known as the capital of pottery and ceramics manufacturing, Nabeul is also a center for the production of garum, a seasoning for all sorts of food. Make sure you get there on Fridays when the town's weekly souk (market) is held, offering a wide range of wonderful Tunisian stuff on souvenir and tourist stalls.
Known by its Roman name of Aqualaria which means "country of eagles," this sleepy coastal village of around 9,00 residents lies on the northernmost tip of Cap Bon on the Sidi Abioud Mountain.
The main activity in the town is on Friday, the local market day. The white-washed buildings mostly look out on the inland fields and countryside rather than the Mediterranean.
This town exudes a sleepy, almost timeless quality and is well on its way to becoming a hot place for tourists around the Cap. Korbous is known locally as the Fruit Garden or Riviera of Tunisia.
Once in Korbous, the smell of mineral-infused water is quite strong - it pours through two small pools and cascades down the rocks and into the sea. The water is heated in underground grottos and comes out almost boiling. Wealthy Tunisians come to bathe in these ancient waters, known for the healing properties.
