    In Korbous itself, you can find :

    Medicinal hot springs:
    -Ain Kebira, the ‘big’ spring.
    - Ain Chiffa, the ‘healing’ spring.
    -Ain Sbia, the ‘virgin’s’ spring.
    - Ain Araka, the ‘perspiration’ spring.

    The non-medicinal cold springs :
    -The Ain Smara non-medicinal cold springs, the ‘gorse’ spring.

    Outside Korbous you can find:

    To the south :
    -Ain Oktor, the ‘dripping’ spring, a cold medicinal spring.
    -Ain Fakroun, the ‘turtle’ spring, a combination of two springs, the first is cold and potable whereas the second is hot and medicinal.
    To the north :
    - Hammam El Atrouss, the ‘goat’ spring.

    and

    Hammam Jedidi
    The hammam is located 78km southeast of Tunis. It is reached via an 18-km long road from the Hammamet interchange on the Tunis-M’saken highway.
    The thermal pumped water is channeled to a reservoir on the hill to supply in a gravitating manner ancient and recent thermal establishments. Recent establishments (with separate premises for men and women) were inaugurated simultaneously with 48 bungalows in December 1993. Each establishment has a common 5m x1.5m swimming-pool, two large restrooms with changing-rooms, six ablution and toilet rooms, and a reception desk. Each bungalow is supplied with thermal water 24 hours a day.
    The Hammam Jedidi thermal water treats rheumatism and skin diseases.

    This info is late for the question asker but may be helpful to someone. Hope to go there myself and check them out.
