    Marina clean and modern, no trade still open and the wifi is at the office of the Harbor Master. Very nice staff, of course there is always formalities and search but it is Tunisia. Very good to visit La Marsa, Sidi Bou Said, Carthage and Tunis. La Marsa (TGM) railway shuttle to Tunis city center. The taxi is called by the Capit and count 6 din for La Marsa where we find everything or almost. Do not hesitate to eat in local restaurants, digestion is good and it's really cheap. We stayed 4 days to visit the environment and are satisfied with this stopover.

    Marina propre et moderne, aucun commerce encore ouvert et la wifi est au bureau de la Capitainerie. Accueil très sympa du personnel, bien sûr il y a toujours les formalités et fouille mais c’est la Tunisie. Très bien pour visiter La Marsa, Sidi Bou Said, Carthage et Tunis. Navette ferroviaire de La Marsa ( le TGM) à Tunis centre ville. Le taxi est appelé par la Capit et compter 6 din pour La Marsa où on trouve tout ou presque. Ne pas hésiter à manger dans les restos locaux, la digestion se fait bien et c’est vraiment pas cher. Nous y sommes restés 4 j pour visiter l’environnement et sommes satisfaits de cette escale.

    I believe that the review by Jean Marc is for Marina de Gammarth which is 4nm north. Email for Sidi bou Said is port-sbs@topnet.tn. Entrance badly silted up so stay well clear of breakwater. Google map photo accurately shows sand in August 2019. Best track is the beach side of green buoy and close to fuel dock. Marina users have seperate toilets and a single shower at the back of reception building. You may need to get the key from reception if the attendant is not present. Marina water is dirty with fuel slick covering most of the marina. Wifi from router in cafe is slow as no external antenna. Payment for berth must be in cash. Taxi is best caught at beach next door to marina. Taxi using meter (compteur) to Sidi bou Said railway station is 1.400 TND. Train to Tunis is 0.700 TND, or Bardo museum is 1.100 TND (you need to change trains at Tunis Marine terminal to either line 1 or line 6, then change at Place de Barcelone to line 4). Local supermarkets are small. Carrefour Tunis is only 6.5km (11min by taxi) and costs approx 4 TND (€1.30) each way. For return trip ignore the taxi mafia at the entrance and walk into the car park to find a waiting taxi that will use the meter.

    Very good port at the foot of Sidi Bou Said! Pleasant welcome by customs and police, cafe on the harbor, and minimalist fittings. The shower is clean but unique. Beware of the port entrance to take a wide and tighten the pontoon gasoline located on the left when you enter the port not to get caught in the sand that is not constantly dredged!
