Tunisia Travel Guide
Nestling on the Mediterranean coast of Africa is Tunisia - an exotic blend of sun drenched beaches and enigmatic culture. The spectacular beaches and coastal resorts are a wonderful asset to Tunisia and offer much more than simply somewhere to lie in the sun. The most popular resort is Hammamet, also known as the ĎTunisian St Tropezí. The Gulf of Hammamet with itís sparkling seas shelters miles of fine golden beaches and offers a wide range of water sports. The atmosphere is incredibly bohemian with itís whitewashed buildings and old walled medina filled with stalls selling traditional wares and quaint curioís. In contrast, there is also a modern commercial centre crammed with cafes, bars, restaurants and shops selling everything from cultural artefacts to haute couture. South down the coast, bustling Sousse also has a great deal to offer, from a historic centre and amazing beaches stretching all the way to Port el Kantaoui to a modern city atmosphere with stylish cafes, bars and shops. The charming old city of Sousse is smaller than that of Hammamet but is safe and relaxed within the old walled medina.
For a less hectic Tunisian experience, head for Port el Kantaoui. This relaxed resort, based around a colourful marina, packed with small shops, boutiques and waterfront cafes has a strong Andalucian feel to it and a slower pace of life than itís sister resorts. The stunning sandy beach seems to stretch for miles and for the discerning golfer, there is even a tournament golf course to try out. Similarly, the resort of Skanes provides smaller scale golfing activities, golden sands and a range of water sports to enjoy. Tunisia may be the smallest North African country, but it has a whole lot to offer.
