Many opportunities for sublime hikes are available on the coast of the Cap Bon, between rocky shores, white sand beaches, crystal-clear water and in springtime vivid wildflowers.
Jagged and rocky, the northern shore of the Cap Bon peninsula offers gorgeous landscapes, alternating from cliffs to long fine sand beaches.
Are we still in Tunisia or on some tropical island? In Port Prince, the rocky coastline faces a turquoise-coloured bay and the landscape is covered with multi-coloured flowers in springtime.

Beach and line fishing
Port Prince’s beach is very popular in summertime. It also attracts anglers thanks to its clear and fish-bearing water.
