  • The gulf roughly spans the coast from Sfax to Djerba, including the city of Gabès (Ghannouche) at its head, where spring tides have a considerable range of up to 2.1 m.
  • Gabès and Sfax are major ports on the gulf, supporting sponge and tuna fisheries, with Gabès serving as the economic and administrative hub.
  •  It is 60 miles (100 kilometres) long and 60 miles wide, bordered on the northeast by the Qarqannah (Kerkena) Islands and on the southeast by Jarbah (Djerba) Island.
