The Ichkeul nature reserve is made up of a 90km2 lake (the last freshwater lake in North Africa), marshland and the Jebel Ichkeul (511m), which dominates the park to the south. The reserve is one of the main wintering grounds for waterfowl in North Africa. Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980, it is one of the most beautiful bird reserves in the world, and home to species such as the wigeon, greylag goose, coot etc.

Cap Blanc: If you have your own wheels, add a Cap Blanc excursion to your things to do list. Leave town heading along Boulevard Habib Bougatfa and continue on the Corniche, passing the beaches and hotels of the area. About two kilometers beyond Cap Bizerte, with its lighthouse, a little side road branches off on the right to Cap Blanc. This is the most northerly point in Africa. Here, the cliffs tumble steeply down to the sea, and the crystal-clear water is a top diving spot.
