Ichkeul National Park
About 60 min trip
Listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the park provides a resting place for many migratory birds. The lake that gives its name to the park is fed in winter in fresh water by wadis, while in summer the sea water flows to the lake, creating a rare ecosystem, due to the variable salinity. If it is undoubtedly a thrill pleasure for many ornithologists and other fans of “bird watching”, it also attracts less expert hikers, who are simply seduced by the sheer beauty of the site.
The small town of EL Alia
30 min trip
Meaning “the high town” in Arabic, El Alia takes its name from its position, at the top of a hill named Jebel Hakima. Founded in Roman times, of which some vestiges remain, the ancient city is especially marked by its Andalusian architecture. From Ras Jebal, it is reached by a small road that winds between hills and wind turbines that stretch almost to Bizerte, forming the largest wind farm in Tunisia.

This small village will make hikers happy thanks to the wild, natural beauty of its coast, with its “Roman pools”, which are actually quarries where the Romans cut out the stones used for the reconstruction of Carthage.
