KORBOUS
Rocks and springs
Korbous is a landscape of its own, set in between mountains too savage to allow many inhabitants. Around Korbous there many isolated, white and dramatic beaches.
If you have a car, driving along the undulating mountains side is a great experience, rugged and with a couple of breathtaking views. A few isolated places even have green vegetation around a spring, but the barren mountain quickly takes over again.

Korbous, Tunisia

The village of Korbous is like a mirage. It is like you almost suspect that there will be no town here, and then suddenly the mountain opens up just a little bit, but enough to have allowed this weird microscopic settlement, set here around a few springs.
For a long time, Korbous has had an exotic image and the thermal baths have been popular as long as people can remember. A walk out to the Zarziha Rock is interesting. The place has been used by infertile women for centuries. They slide down it, and now it is soft and polished.
