Plage de la Mansoura

Cap Bon

Plage de la Mansoura's soft white sand tapers gently into blissfully clear-as-glass sea. This is Kelibia's favourite beach, and it gets packed at the weekends. If you'd prefer your strand secluded, walk north past the sun-coloured Cap-Bon Kelibia Beach Hotel, where empty sand stretches on as far as the eye can see.
