There is little information about Abu Kammash, because there are hardly any written sources. Several archaeological discoveries such as graves and tombs where made during construction works. These excavations tell us that history is going back to the Punic, and Roman time. The site extends a couple of kilometres along the coast. The city is located about 25 kilometres from Ras al Jedir, where the border is with Tunisia. Nowadays Abu Kammash is a village inhabited mostly by Berbers. A reef runs parallel to the shore for about two miles, enclosing a beautiful small fishing harbour, with blue-painted fishing boats. We believe there are more archaeology discoveries to be made in lands but also underwater.
