La goulette map port

The port of La Goulette is the converging point of the main Tunisian road and railroad networks. 
It is the outlet for a region that is the richest historically, the most diversified culturally, and the most populated, 
since it comprises the city and the suburbs of Tunis. In addition to its transit and cruise activities, the port of La Goulette 
also receives ships carrying homogeneous cargos: cars, bulk cereals, various products … 
However, the development plan of the port provides for its specialization as a port exclusively reserved for passenger and tourist traffic. 

Dredging of the access fairway at 14m and of the canal at -13m for receiving large-size cruise ships. 
Construction of an additional dock and a reception area for receiving cruise ships under the B.O.T. system.

7 berths - Length : 1090 m. - Draught : 9 m.
