Goulette

Port Goulette A Privileged Destination

The port of La Goulette is one of the most popular destinations in the western basin of the Mediterranean.
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.
