If you’re looking for a sun-drenched vacation but want somewhere a little more exotic than Europe but a lot closer than the Caribbean, Tunisia could be your ‘just right’ option!
A mere 3 hours away from the UK, Tunisia is considered to be the gateway to Africa and boasts long ribbons of palm-fringed sands, warm cerulean Mediterranean waters, towns and villages speckled with souks, medinas and fascinating ruins from Tunisia’s Carthaginian past, not to mention the Sahara desert in the south of the country.
Tunisia’s tourism industry is well-developed and many resorts have contemporary hotels, excellent facilities and an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars that you would expect from a modern holiday destination. Outside of these main resorts, you’ll find a rich culture and an engaging history that makes Tunisia more than just a sea-and-sand destination.
The country maintains a minimum spring-like temperature year-round, soaring into the low 30s in the peak of summer, particularly in regions around the Sahara which doesn’t afford much for a sea breeze!
