Anchoring off Kuriate Island aka Ile Kuriate aka Jazirat Qurayyat, a low island, lying about 10 nm ENE of Monastir, making landfall with our vintage Bombard AX 300 inflatable dinghy, rambling together with our daughter Ulrike over this uninhabited, desolate island with its salt marsh vegetation and exploring its 26-m high lighthouse (which is notoriously unreliable according to many navigational warnings for seafarers).

Sailing around the N tip of Kuriate Island and keeping a sharp lookout for those infamous tunny nets which are up to 3.5 nm long and are laid out NW and NNW of Kuriate Island between the months of April and August.
