The port

Ghar El Melh is a small fishing port situated 3M WSW of Cap Farina N of the delta formed by Oued Medjerda. The port is surrounded by miles of deserted beaches and it is a tranquil place. Today it is only used by fishermen who work in rowing boats in the Lake of Porto Farina. The lake has a shallow entrance to the sea. In summer 2004, the port entrance had been recently dredged to 8m in the entrance and 4m in the channel, enabling yachts to moor inside.
