This North African country is brimming with fantastic beachside hotels and accommodation. Tunisia holidays offer a fantastic blend of souks, spices, sands and cities, with historical features displayed throughout.
Perched on the northern edge of Africa, Tunisia has the best of both worlds. Its body basks under the blazing African sun whilst its toes dip into the warm Mediterranean Sea. This country is a mixture of serene open spaces inland and on the coast while the towns and cities are buzzing with culture across the markets and restaurants found throughout.
To add to all of this, Tunisia has relics that evidence thousands of years of history and ancient civilisations. City ruins, mosques of significant grandeur and fascinating monuments are just some of the unique sites that reward visitors who choose to enjoy holidays in Tunisia.
For couples this country is the perfect getaway while many hotels cater for families too. The theme of the country is generally relax and shop but there are some small theme parks and waterparks found around some of the resorts for kids to enjoy.
A sandy island lying in the Gulf of Gabes, just off the coast of Tunisia, Djerba is a great place to enjoy the Mediterranean climate and scorching sunshine.
One hundred and thirty five kilometres of beaches surround Djerba meaning there is plenty of space to call your own here. Highlighted beaches include the long Sidi Mahres and the Zone Touristqiue, both providing great facilities to keep you satisfied all day.
In the northern part of the island, the more traditional city of Houmt Souk host markets stalls and bazaars which are ideal opportunities to pick up a unique holiday souvenir.
Known to be Tunisia's first tourist resort, Hammamet's success is down to the patches of glorious beach as well as the fine clear ocean that touches the town.
When spending your days on the beach, make sure to head into the ocean to swim and snorkel with the tropical fish that inhabit the shoreline.
As well as the coast, there is some great golf courses, theme and animal parks for the families as well as a fun selection of nightly hotspots where locals and tourists enjoy a sociable drink and a dance.
Perhaps the most luxurious resort in all of North Africa, this town was built specifically with tourists in mind. The manmade marina is bordered by two long golden beaches that provide fantastic beach experiences.
The marina itself is an upmarket area that is home to swanky restaurants, posh boutiques and fun cocktail bars. The harbour is the starting point for many daytime adventures on the ocean too.
A suburb of nearby Sousse, there is great transport connections between the two if you want to hop over to experience a more historic area of Tunisia.
A small haven of relaxation which has convenient links to two great nearby towns, Skanes shares an 8km long beach with the historic Monastir and the touristy Sousse.
Skanes hosts exciting water sports off its coast while the nearby town of Monastir has some terrific examples of Tunisian history. It's also a popular substitute for Jerusalem in many major films across the years.
The nights are hushed with the Monastir Marina providing some beautiful spots to enjoy an evening meal and a glass of wine. During the day it's a handy place to do some holiday shopping too.
Sousse's 3,000 years of history, modern hotels and accommodation, and the spectacular beach is what has made it such a popular destination for European visitors.
Displaying many buildings, ruins and relics that are centuries old, the city feels like a trip to the past. Sousse is also the best place to experience an authentic Tunisian market place with enthusiastic sellers haggling over the best price for unique trinkets and ornaments.
If the busy feel of the city gets too much, slink down onto the 8km long Boujaffar Beach where you're sure to find a secluded spot to laze underneath the Mediterranean sunshine.
Summer holidays to Tunisia provide temperatures that push towards 30C with not a drop of rain in sight.
Winters get milder as the temperatures hover around 14C with a slight increase in the chance of rain but there is still some great beach weather to enjoy.
Tunisia's biggest national holiday is Independence Day which is celebrated on March 20. The hotels book up fast around this date because there is plenty of fun and festivities to be enjoyed at this time.
The Djerba island resort has two locations where parts of the film were made but you'll find instantly recognisable scenes at Medinine and Matmata. Book a three hour journey from Djerba to explore Luke and Anakin Skywalker's respective hometowns and feel the force of the area.
A large city towards the north of Djerba, Houmt Souk is a great location to experience authentic Tunisian markets, boutiques and bazaars. It's an expansive area with some great examples of history too such as the Fort Ghazi Mustapha which looks over the coastline.
A historic town next to Skanes and close to Sousse, Monastir packs in plenty of major historical attractions into its small surroundings. Coliseum ruins, a gorgeous mausoleum and a fort over a thousand years old are just some of the highlights of Monastir.
Tunisia's weather and climate make playing conditions ideal all year round. There are several courses around the major resorts but the most popular are the Palm Links course in Skanes, El Kantaoui course in Port El Kantaoui and the Citrus golf course in Hammamet.
Sousse is filled with historical and notable attractions but the winding streets and ancient bricks of the city's medina are definitely worth exploring. Spot the nuanced relics throughout, the Great Mosque of Sousse or even shop at the flea markets which still operate within.
These road vehicles are the best way to travel from Skanes and Port El Kantaoui to Sousse and back. Hopping aboard the quirky vehicles will cost very little as you enjoy the leisurely journey along the Tunisian coastline. If you want a more romantic trip, take the horse and cart option.
