The Gulf of Tunis (Arabic: خليج تونس‎) is a large bay in north-eastern Tunisia, extending for 39 miles (63 km) from Cap Farina in the west to Cap Bon in the east.[1] Tunis, the capital city of Tunisia, lies at the south-western edge of the Gulf, as have a series of settled places over the last three millennia. Djebel Ressas rises to 795 metres (2,608 ft) around 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) south of the southern edge of the Gulf.
