Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“In Bizerte’s port there is a point which all ships travelling to and from the Orient are obliged to keep an eye on to avoid the Skerki banks and reload their coal reserves at the best price.

They have French, English and Belgian coal at 20 francs per tonne, while in Tunis it costs 24 francs.

Drinking water is supplied by boats in the bay with hoses connected directly to the docks. The water costs 2 francs per cubic meter if taken directly at the dock.”

Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, Bizerte, J. Rothschild, Paris, 1900 (Prague, 1897)

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

Approaching Bizerte with its White Cape is certainly an impressive view. Today, Bizerte still occupies a strategic spot for ships sailing along the southern coast of the Mediterranean.

The city has developed its industrial port considerably, and we saw large cargo ships arriving continuously and anchoring just outside the port until a spot opened up for them inside.

In terms of recreational boats, today they can only dock at the fishing port which is not in very good condition. They hope to finish building the new marina soon where the old port ends. When completed, Bizerte will certainly be even more attractive for nautical tourism along that side of the Mediterranean.
