This small pleasant spa resort that is Korbous immerses us in a landscape between sky and sea. Housed on the cut coast, there are 7 hot springs (with a therapeutic reputation): so take the time to enjoy it in a unique place and discover the Arraka hammam which is located in a cave. 50 km from Tunis, Korbous, was already famous in Roman times and a popular destination for the Carthaginians. Its seven sources, mostly hot, fed a network of underground ovens that have remained active to the present day. The therapeutic indications of Korbous are diverse. Each source has its particularity. This thermal complex with multiple applications, therefore, welcomes a very varied clientele. In addition to the care provided, customers here benefit from clean air, a favorable climate, and an invigorating environment.

What to Expect
Not far off the main highway that heads out of Tunis, but far enough to be off the beaten path, the Korbous ’hot springs that flow into the Mediterranean are a popular spot with Tunisians from the capital and the surrounding region. When you arrive to Korbous, the beauty of the blue Mediterranean captivates you.The coast is rocky, which means the water is crystal clear no matter what kind of weather.Besides the clear blue water, the view is also amazing. You get a panoramic view of Tunis, Carthage, and Sidi Bou Said just across the Gulf of Tunis about 20 kilometers away. The hills surrounding Tunis and its suburbs create the perfect backdrop to the entire scene. For lunch you can order freshly caught sea bream, sea bass, shrimp, and other seasonal fish (they also have non-seafood options). After lunch, head over to the small pools built to catch the water from the hot springs that flow out of the mountain. The hot water flows into the sea here, and bathing in it is said to have many health benefits because of the water's natural minerals. It's a delight to swim here in the naturally warmed sea water, especially when the Mediterranean isn’t quite warm enough to swim in otherwise.
