Cap Bon Peninsula
The Cap Bon headland, a peninsula home to myriad flowers and fragrances, juts out into the Mediterranean in the extreme north of the country, between the gulfs of Tunis and Hammamet. Here, the beaches of Hammamet and Nabeul attract hordes of tourists, leaving the remainder of the area delightfully quiet and peaceful. The peninsula is a shimmering mosaic of orchards and gardens, a fertile and abundant land renowned for its sun-blessed climate. Thermal springs are a common feature here, as are the numerous vineyards, lemon and orange trees teeming with fruit, and roses, which compete for supremacy with jasmine.
