The Hot Spring

The hot water spring in Ksar Ghilane gives hot water, and water has always been the source of life: imagine then in the desert ! where the climate is arid, and where temperatures exceed 50%.

In the middle of the sand dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see, life can exist too… A natural hot spring is found in Ksar Ghilane and has served to create an oasis in the middle of nowhere !

This hot spring gushes out all year round. It is used as entertainment for swimming but above all for the irrigation of the oases created around …

Thanks to this source, now Ksar Ghilane is no longer a desert but an oasis where the greenery of the palm trees embraces the ocher color of the dunes …

This source has allowed the inhabitants to live off the date palms and fruit trees that they plant but it is also used for tourism.

No one can visit Ksar Ghilane without enjoying its natural hot spring rich in sulfur !

Next to the spring, the café has created a space for changing. The only problem is that the source is located between cafes and shops, which is not practical for pudic people.

During their visits to the oasis, people usually enjoy a ride on a quad or camel in the dunes. This makes them come back covered in sand and this is where swimming at the source becomes a real pleasure.
