Hot and sunny in all the right ways, Tunisia is your go-to destination for beaches with a side dish of culture. Here, UNESCO sites and waterparks tick the classic holiday boxes, while the nightlife scenes at individual resorts keep you on your toes.
Tunisia might only be a sliver of a country on the North African coast, but this little spot leaves a big impression in the world of sun-laced holidays.
Although Tunisia edges along the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert, up on the Mediterranean coast is a beach haven lined with impressive resorts, waterparks and nightlife, not to mention its fair share of history.
Each of the resorts you'll choose from for luxury Tunisia holidays, though equally warm and permeated with the country's Arabic heritage, comes in different shapes and sizes.
Hammamet is the country's original holidaymaker's haven, while Djerba stuns with classic beach-scapes and whitewashed architecture. And then there's Sousse, the shiniest jewel in Tunisia's culture crown, complete with a UNESCO World Heritage Site and museums galore.
Djerba is the largest island in North Africa and is renowned for its idyllic beaches and Greek mythological roots. This island gives you the classic Tunisian experience, with bazaars selling colourful spices and cities and towns full of ancient history. A mecca for Star Wars fans, Djerba was also the setting for Episode IV – a New Hope.
Tunisia's first tourist town is also one of its most welcoming. With the old Kasbah fortress on one side and the Carthageland theme park on the other, you've got broad pale beaches and shopping galore to entice you in these narrow and culturally rich streets, backed up by some of the best cuisine in the country.
Tunisia's most popular holiday resort, Sousse has all the elements for a unforgettable seaside retreat. Sun-kissed beaches, fantastic nightlife venues and superb restaurants only scrape the surface. Sousse's magnificent ancient past takes centre stage here, with a UNESCO World Heritage Medina complete with a 9th-century mosque and military castle.
