La Galite - Northernmost tip of Africa including islands and of Tunisia

The archipelago La Galite is the northernmost point of the African continent  including islands. The archipelago consists of five islands: Le Galiton, La Fouchelle, La Galite (main island) and Iles des Chiens, all volcanic islands. Only a lighthouse 14 m / 46 ft high on Le Galiton betrays their presence in the warm waters of the Mediterranean by night. The Iles des Chiens, which are uninhabited, owe their name to a stray seal that was spotted near the islands by fishermen, who thought that it was a dog. The archipelago is famous for its beaches with the beautiful buffed flat white stones.

What else is there
Bizerte, founded by the Phoenicians more than 3,000 years ago. The old harbor, the Great Mosque of the seventeenth century, the Spanish Fort and some of the finest beaches in the country: in this charming town there are a thousand things to see. And only 65 km away there is Tunez, the capital of the country, with its impressive Bardo Museum and Medina, declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1979. It is a rich natural area, both in the water and on land. The islands le Galiton and la Fouchelle are breeding grounds for two bird species, the cormorant and the gull of Audouin with the bright red beak. Le Galiton island has been declared a nature reserve for the preservation of the monk seal.

Notes
The best months to travel to northern Tunisia are from April to June, September and October. Sun is guaranteed for almost 100% and there are no huge tourist crowds.
