Located at the top of the Cap bon, Kelibia is about 100 kilometers away from the capital Tunis. Currently, Kelibia is a touristic town known for its beautiful beaches and its fortress (“Burj”), but also for its carpenters.
Kelibia has the 4th best fishing port of Tunisia, and its vineyards provide the “muscat de Kelibia” (white wine, popular among Tunisians).
Being a tourist city is hardly the vocation of Kelibia. It was in fact since the Romans, a maritime military base whose geographical position allowed it to neutralize war bases of Sicily, Malta and Gibraltar. This military vocation remains still since Kelibia is home to the maritime national school.
