Nabeul Things to Do

  • Medina

    Medina is traditional Tunisian market a very busy place with lots of people during both day and night. It usually has network of corridors and is situated in the basement of the complex of buildings. Medina of Nabeul is pretty clean, comparing to other Medinas, and yet it is far of the western standards.

  • Horesy horesy

    A fair few horse drawn traps to go on, decorated with flowers and the like. As always I was concerned as to the welfare of the horses - but there was nothing to make me think they were mistreated.We did end up on one - purely to get our kids away from the constant harassment of the vendors. The trip didn't set my world on fire and it didn't...

  • Doors

    When strolling around, one of the first things you'll noticed are this in particularly interesting doors of the houses. Basicly, there are two or three types of the doors; those made of iron which are adorned by minted arabesque motifs, and wooden doors mostly coloured in red with frames in olive green or light blue colour. Besides the ornamented...

    show time: daily show within the hotel

    by croisbeauty Written Dec 21, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had daily party, on the hotel's terrace, organized by the group of local entertainers that was most impatient expected by little kids. Small stage became kid's place for various games and dancing and they in fact really enjoyed. After the kids performed DJ who played Tunisian hits, led at that time by globally popular song "Sidi Mansour ya Baba", which was remake of an traditional Tunisian music.

Nabeul Transportation

  • Get there from Hammamet

    Nabeul is near Hammamet and you can get there with the bus. It takes about 20 min to get there from North Hammamet and costs around 1-1.5 TD.The biggest problem is that the bus stops in Hammamet, especially in North Hammamet are not marked properly. That's why we missed the bus. Actually we wanted to go to South Hammamet with the bus, we missed it...

    There is a great market in Nabeul, it is held on Friday. It is full of souvenirs but the best ones are the hand painted ceramic plates and pottery. You have to haggle with them also but you will have nice souvenirs with bargain prices. There you will find lots of other things, but be careful what to buy.

  • Orange Tree

    This interesting and very attractive monument is located in Avenue Habib Thameur, but our "brilliant" tourist guide has never mentioned its significance and importance for the local community. After coming back home I made my own research and found out that the region of Cap Bon is one of the world's largest producers of "neroli oil" which is...

  • Jasmine flower

    When strolling around, you'll see a lot of men with jasmine flower behind their left ear. If you ask for an explanation you'll get different answers. First what I was told is that it is used by young guy who is ready to get married and searching for a wife, he usually wears it on his left ear when going out. But then I saw, as shown on my picture,...

Nabeul Warnings and Dangers

  • Hammamet scam

    We also found the Medina impossible and left as soon as possible-and we also were tricked by the "I'm a waiter in your hotel" trick.A scam we nearly fell for was being approached right after the rep meeting in the hotel foyer by a man wearing an ID badge saying he was employed by the tour operator to give free tours of Hammamet because guests did...

  • Horse trap!

    With our youngest child in tears from the constant wave of vendors trying to drag him out of our arms and into their shops we went on a horse trap ride to try to get some peace. It all started off ok, a trit trot around town. But then our driver took us to the outskirts of town to a large pottery factory. The workers all stopped working and crowded...

  • Nabeul - Enough already

    When we visited Nabeul our children were 2yrs & 3yrs at the time. In their money-hungry efforts to get us to their stalls and into their shops the vendors tried to use our kids. They were literally grabbing at them and trying to drag them away from us to their items for sale.They were literally trying to prize them out of our arms so up onto our...

Nabeul Tourist Traps

  • Narked in Nabeul

    Nabeul will also be under "list of things to do". It's worth going just as long as you expect it to be a tourist trap!We went on the "market day" buy hey - every day is market day - market day with marked up prices!!!If you get a bus there direct from your hotel the chances are your driver will stop just out side of Nabeul at a pottery shop so you...

  • Carpets and "carpets"

    There are carpets and "carpets", depend on weather you buy it in the carpet stores or from the street wendors. Every street weondor will try to convince you that his carpets, even those which cost 100 dinars only, are of wool origin and hand-made. One more warning, when in Medina, never trust to those guys who "recognize" you as the guest of the...

  • Selling Skills

    Tunisians are very resourceful salesmen.My favourite were the young men that will approach you in the street, greet you and ask if you remember them, you tell them no and they then tell you that they served you breakfast in your hotel that morning! You apologise for not recognizing them and they tell you that its ok and they shake your hand.This...

    Fighting the Heat - Part I

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Travels to places like Tunisia involves a lot of fighting the heat, especially if you, like me (I am still surprised as to why I did that), go there right in the middle of the summer. Here’s a list of useful items to take:

    - Hats and other covering: Large brimmed hats that provide head covering and some shade. For women, they are also a proof of modesty, welcomed when visiting old churches and mosques. Scarves and the like covering shoulders and arms can keep the sun off during treks. A cloth hat or scarf can be soaked to help keep the head cool.

    - "Squeeze Breeze": this is a water bottle with a sprayer and a battery-operated fan attached. The beach toy to take with you!

    - Sun block: While sun blocks may be purchased in Tunisia, people tend to prefer sticking with their own favourite brand (the skin, too, ‘gets used’ to it), and there’s not guarantee you’ll find it on the spot. So take your own, if you have preferences!

    Favorite thing: Cap Bon peninsula is protruding part of Tunisia in the Mediterranean Sea and can be called a passage to Europe because it is only 140 of kilometers far from Sicily. It is a fertile oasis of Tunisia, mainly lowland, where it is grown fruits, vegetables and olives, while the slopes of gentle hills dotted with vineyards. Many might be surprised, just as I was, by the information that Tunisia is the fourth largest exporter of olives in the world.
    Colonization o this area began about 800 BC with the Phoenicians and ended in the 20th century with the French. The peninsula of Cap Bon, as well as the rest of Tunisia, is rich in historical remains of the different cultures that have inhabited it.

    Fondest memory: Nabeul was founded in the 5th century BC by the Greeks under the name of Neapolis (new city) and its today's name is an Arabised form of its Greek name. The town is capital of Nabeul Governorate, which cover the whole Cap Bon peninsula, and has approximately 60.000 inhabitants.
