Port of Azeffoun

The port of Azeffoun is a compulsory stop for me when I go to the area. I have seen the port of Azeffoun transformed over the years. When I was younger, I learned to fish in deep water, to make big dives … Then work began in the late 1980s to enlarge the port of Azeffoun, they lasted more Of a decade so that the transformation ends to offer the city of Azeffoun and its fishermen the infrastructure that will enable them to develop the fishing and tourism activities.
