Chott Meriem is an up and coming area, located between two ports, with Hergla 8 km to the north and Port El Kantaoui 5 km towards the south.
It’s little wonder that this resort is fast growing in popularity, with a location only 5 minutes from the Marina and champion golf course at El Kantaoui, and only 40 minutes from Monastir Airport. Tunisia’s new international airport at Enfidha is only 25 km away and the proposed new ferry port at Hergla a 10 minute drive, all adding up to make it a near perfect location.
Although so close, Chott Meriem couldn’t be more different to the tourist resort of Port El Kantaoui and looks like a typical Arab village. The Technical Centre of Organic Agriculture and the Higher School of Horticulture are both situated there and if you are looking for plants, there are numerous nurseries /garden centres dotted along the roadside. The new road from Port El Kantaoui through to Hergla Lake makes driving infinitely easier and kinder to your car’s suspension!
For those looking for total relaxation, beautiful beaches, calm and tranquility, Chott Meriem is certainly the place to be!
