The Republic of Tunisia is Africa’s northernmost country, sitting across the Mediterranean from Sardinia, Italy, and Sicily. The capital, Tunis, is located in a scenic Gulf of the same name, while the rest of the country is bordered by Libya to the East and Algeria to the West. While Tunisia is rightfully seen as one of Africa’s premier beach destinations, it offers much more than that. In fact, tourists can see almost all of what makes Northern Africa so enticing simply by traveling around this one culturally diverse country. These are the places for family vacations, where you can enjoy lots of outdoor activities, as well as great food and accommodation.
Though there are plenty of nightlife options year-round, it’s worth noting that during the month of Ramadan, alcohol sales will be restricted in many areas of Tunisia.
Here are just some of the amazing sites Tunisia has to offer…
Sidi Bou Said:
Friguia animal park:
El Djem Amphitheater
If you’re looking for the picture-perfect beach escape, then the island of Djerba checks all the right boxes. The island town of Houmt Souk is the main point of interest off the beach, with an old town district that is a muddle of whitewashed houses. Houmt Souk’s shopping is an attraction in itself, with plenty of handicraft vendors for browsing and haggling opportunities off the beach.
