Tunisia is a veritable mix of colour, beauty and spice, with ancient cities, fantastically friendly locals and stunning coastal landscapes. Tunisia is still a wonderfully traditional destination, where you can stroll down dazzling Mediterranean beaches, play golf or watch the blazing sunsets over the Sahara.
There is a huge amount of culture to explore on Tunisia holidays, with Phoenician, Roman, Byzantine, Turkish and Spanish monuments to explore from a Tunisia property. There are hundreds of monuments and archaeological sites of great importance in African history, the majority of which are open to visitors all week. One of the best places to go for an overall insight into the history and culture of Tunisia is the National Museum of Bardo, which houses many of the most impressive artefacts found in Tunisia.
With over 1,200 kilometres of beaches in Tunisia, many people take Tunisia holidays purely for long, lazy days in the sun, stretched out on the fantastically fine golden sand of the Mediterranean. The straight, uninterrupted Tunisia beaches of resorts like Hammamet, Djerba, Sousse, and Monastir are among the best places to take Tunisia apartments for a beach holiday, although there are a great range to choose from. Water sports including sailing, scuba diving, fishing and windsurfing are readily available from a Tunisia property along the Mediterranean coast too.
Golf holidays in Tunisia are some of the best in the whole of Africa. The magnificent climate, complete lack of crowds and excellent standard of courses mean that many people take the relatively short trip for a golfing weekend or golf holiday in Tunisia each year, and there is never a problem in arranging a tee-off time. There are six fantastic golf courses that are open to visitors all year round, including the Carthage, Hammamet, El Kantaoui, Monastir and Tabarka golf courses.
Hammamet is a beautiful beach resort with pristine beaches, beautiful ancient Tunisian properties and excellent bars in which to enjoy your evenings and watch the sun setting. There are a great range of festivals, expeditions and water sports facilities to enjoy all year round.
Away from the coast, the Tunisian Sahel is the cultural hotspot of Tunisia. The summer months are filled with festivals and events, with singing and dancing filling the warm evening air almost nightly. Those looking for Tunisia holidays filled with culture and tradition, a Tunisia property in the Sahel is the ideal option.
Rain is rare at any point of the year in Tunisia. The period between June and October sees average temperatures of over 20°C, with daily peaks reaching well into the mid 30’s on an almost daily basis. The winter, which lasts from December until February, still sees daily peak temperatures threatening to break the 20°C mark, which is a great time to explore the historical heritage of Tunisia.
The two main airports in Tunisia, the Monastir International Airport (MIR) and the Tunis-Carthage Airport (TUN), both receive a huge range of direct flights which arrive from airports throughout the whole of the UK.
