Beaches in Sidi Bou Said
La Mersa Beach
At the bottom of the cliff, under the houses of Sidi Bou Said, is one of the country's most prized beaches: La Mersa Beach, a summer resort of the highest social class of Tunisia, washed by the warm waters of the Mediterranean, in the Gulf of Tunis, with fine golden sand. Not very big in size, and next to it is a luxury [poi = 152861] Marina [/ poi].
Shops in Sidi Bou Said
Art Gallery - Art Gallery
Sidi Bou Said is a hangout for artists, musicians, poets and writers. Among the many souvenir shops, there are also art galleries, like "The Artist", which is the first turn on the right hand side from the square Sidi Bou Said. Its facade is in tune with the picturesque architecture of the town. The whitewashed houses have doors and balconies that stand out in azure. Admission is free, so I sneaked in to take a look around. It's two storeys, and the top floor has a metal grid that looks onto the floor below. All the walls of the house were filled with oil paintings, other paintings and works of art, which, apart from being on display, are also sold. There is also a jewellery area with mainly silver handmade pieces.
Squares in Sidi Bou Said
Sidi Bou Said Square
(1)
Ascending the hill on which is perched the picturesque village of Sidi Bou Said from the Square November 7 , the main street widens to form a small square that has the "original" name of Plaza Sidi Bou Said. This place is probably the most atmospheric for the people, as it is surrounded by souvenir shops and terraces where most tourists make a stop along the way and enjoy the traditional green tea with pine nuts. In this square there are 2 popular places: The restaurant Le chargi, and Café des Nattes, a tea house occupying the place where Husain ben Ali Bey built a mosque in the eighteenth century.
Squares in Sidi Bou Said
7 Novembre Square
This wide square, with a roundabout in the center, is the entry point to the village from Carthage and Tunis. It is also the best place to park your car (if you come on your own) or where the bus will leave you if you come on an organized tour, as Sidi Bou Said is a pedestrianised area. Likewise, if you come by train, the train station is here too. I mean, it's a pretty important place! The square houses the mosque Abu Said al-Beji and also has several cafes and restaurants with terraces. From here, you can join Thameur Habib street that will lead you to the heart of this picturesque village and the lively Plaza Sidi Bou Said, with its tea shops and souvenir shops.
