Tabarka Things to Do

    There's not much to do in Tabarka but I'd suggest booking a few trips with the travel agency to Tunis, the capital city, or the dessert. I've heard that the dessert trip is an unforgettable experience from many people but we didn't have time for it, unfortunatelly.

    Taxis are a good and cheap way to get from your hotel to the golf resort in Tabarka or to Tabarka town. Just make sure the taxameter is turned on. To go to Tabarka from the toursit resort where the hotels are expect to pay 2-3 dinars, more if it's after dark.

Tabarka Shopping

    The best wine is called The Vieux Magon (or Magot, not sure) (you can also get a cheaper young magot but it's not as good). You won't find alcohol on shelves in any store in Tunise, though. It is legally sold but not displayed. So to buy it in Tabarka, take a taxi to the centre, ask the taxi drievr to take you to Monoprix. Don't go straight into the supermarket but on the other side of it, from the back, is a small door with bars, enter and there you'll buy your wine through a small window like at a post office. The price is about 10 dinars.

    If you're not into haggling on markets or the street in Tabarka go to this shop (just tell the taxi driver he'll take you there). You can get local souvenirs and gifts here, such as corals, jewellery, scarfs, traditional clothes, pottery, etc. I recommend it for silver jewellery.

    If you shop in Tunise on the street or in markets do haggle for a better price. You're expected to do so and you'll offend the shop keepers if you don't or be considered a stupid tourist as they'll rip you off your money. It's fun, just try it. Always make the shop keeper tell his price first. It will be over the top. You then have to say a sum which is a third of his price. Usuallly, you won't settle for it but afer a few minutes of haggling you'll come to something acceptable for both of you. Don't be offended if they call you a criminal it's just the part of their fun and drama and don't hesitate to walk out of the shop if the shop keeper refuses to come up with a reasonable price. Most likely he'll come running after you with a better deal.

Tabarka Warnings and Dangers

    by nina_z Written Aug 9, 2006

    This is true for all Tunisia, if you're a women, you'll have a hard time being pestered by all the local men. We went with a girl friend and had to stay in the hotel most of the time and even there we weren't left alone by the waiters for example. The worst experience was a 20 min walk from our hotel to Tabarka town on the beach, the men were crazy. They'll follow you, touch you and do not consider NO and GO AWAY as answers... it's really scary. I love the country and would go again but only with my boyfriend.
