More notes about the marina

Bizerte marina is still under construction, including a residential complex. Berths of all sizes are available with water & electricity. Showers and toilets are new and clean (as of May 2018).

The marina is located close to the Vieux Port (old harbour) which can is roughly 2km walking distance. It can also be reached by dinghy, although there is no "protected" place to leave the dinghy in the old port.

Add here VHF channel for the coastguard, harbor masters. etc.


Entry to the port area is possible north of the breakwater or south of it. Large and commercial ships are using the south side, but if ther is no traffic the author advises to use the south one, as the north entry is at points fairly shallow, though no problem was experienced with a drought of 1.7m (it's only the nerves).


The marina is still under construction. Hence locations are subject to change. Marina office, customs and border control are all located in the marina building. The author's experience was, that officials were within no time at the boat's location (which was assigned to by a marinero).

The boarder guard asked (very politely) for a "gift for the officials" but, as non-drinker, declined the bottle of booze. We did pay 20€ because we did not know better, but actually should not have payed anything at all. All other officials were mostly friendly and correct.


Moorings are laid out on the pontoons (stern-to or bow-to) for regular sized ships. Water and electricity are at the berth. Wifi (as of May 2018) was only available in marina building.

An alternative to the marina is the fishing port on the south side of the port.


The author's impression was, that prices are close to those in Sidi Bou Said Marina (for a 32' boat).

If you have more info, please supply.


Anchoring might be possible in the Lac, which can be reached following the river SW past the harbours.

If you have more info, please supply.

A Carrefour supermarket, which also sells alcohol, is roughly 400m away from the marina. Other supermarkets can be found in the city. A local market in the city center (near Vieux Port) provides cheap and fresh produce.

Fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, ... Note: standards are that of a developing country, don't expect it to have the sterile appearance of a supermarket.

Carrefour Express/wiki/Marina_Bizerte#Carrefour_ExpressProvisions icon Carrefour Express [[Marina Bizerte#Carrefour Express|Carrefour Express]] 37°16.200'N, 009°52.500'E Supermarket that sells acohol. Besides that it has hardly any selection, seems as the groceries are only cemoflage for the alcohol.
