Four reasons to send a tourist to Tunisia
Here, tourists do not need to think out what to do – Tunisia offers excellent beaches, a wide range of entertainment and spa treatments. In addition, Tunisia is one of the most returning summer destinations, information about which will never be superfluous.
First reason: the beach
Thanks to its fantastic coast, beaches with fine sand, which stretches for 575 kilometers, and a string of paradise islands, Tunisia is one of the best beach destinations in the Mediterranean.
Most of the beaches in Tunisia are sandy, with a gentle entry into the sea, and the width of the beach can reach 70 meters. Gradually increasing depth of the sea, fine white sand attracts families with children. By the way, most hotels suitable for families with children are located in Hammamet.
There are also rocky areas in the southeast of Djerba, in the center of Monastir and Mahdia, in North Hammamet and Nabeul, but even here there is a sandy entrance to the sea.
The best beaches can boast the following resorts:
The beaches of Hammamet – here is the smallest and almost white sand, wide coastline and a smooth increase in depth.
The beaches of Djerba are very wide, in some places the coastal sandy strip goes deeper into the territory for half a kilometer. All beaches are sandy, rocky areas of the coast are rare.
The beaches of Mahdia are white sand of incredibly fine grinding, a calm sea of azure color, an impressive width of the beach, combined with good landscaping.
There is everything for an active family holiday. During a break between water aerobics and beach volleyball, you can parachute and roll off a giant water slide, defy gravity in an amusement park, or take part in battles in a paintball club. For young and gambling – a huge selection of discos, lounge bars, casinos and trendy clubs.
The second reason: a rich excursion program
In the history of Tunisia, different Mediterranean cultures have repeatedly replaced each other. After the fall of Carthage, the Roman Empire was established, the monuments of which are now generously scattered throughout the country. Seven sites and monuments have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for their cultural value: these are the sites of Carthage, Duggi, El Jem and Kirkouan, the old city in Tunisia, Kairouan and Sousse.
In Carthage, preserved mostly remains of Roman buildings – the Capitol, the amphitheater, the grandiose term of Antonin, as well as Byzantine churches.
At 120 km from the capital you can see the ancient center of Tunisia – the ancient city of Dougga. The Punic mausoleum, a monument erected in honor of the three gods – Jupiter, Juno and Minera, the temple of the goddess Juno Celesta, the Roman bath, the triumphal arch and other ancient structures are preserved here.
The most interesting monuments of the Muslim Middle Ages are concentrated in Tunisia, Kairouan, Sousse, Monastir, Mahdia, Sfax. Tunisia, the capital and main port of the country, was founded by the Phoenicians in the tenth century BC. Its main attraction is Medina, a medieval Arabic city with bazaars, mosques and numerous shops. It also houses the Bardo Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of Roman mosaics.
In the middle of a mountain landscape, steep plateaus and peaks, amazing architectural structures of Xura rise. These “castles of the desert” used to be connecting points for the nomads of the region. Some Xura, such as Chenini and Duire – this village, standing on impregnable peaks. Berber is spoken here today.
Third reason: impressions
The large resorts of Tunisia offer tourists a variety of outdoor activities. For lovers of water sports, access is available to thirty ports and berths and to seven seaside resort complexes equipped with high-level equipment. The sea depths of Tunisia are great, and in most resorts there are diving centers.
The diversity of nature: from forests and mountains in the north, to the Sahara desert in the south, offers to make memorable walks along various routes: on foot, on horseback or on a motorcycle. You can spend your days improving your tennis technique or riding a scooter.
Tunisia has something to conquer golfers. There are ten major golf courses located in places with a wide variety of landscapes, from the Tabarka forests to the Tozer palm groves.
For those who like hunting, guides will show you the most interesting places and help you catch a wild boar.
For family holidays, the zoo “Phrygia” is suitable, which is near the Hammamet resort. All African animals are gathered here, you can swim with dolphins, the animals themselves live in open spaces, in their natural environment. The CarthageLand Amusement Park in Hammamet is the equivalent of the famous Disneyland. In addition to various attractions there is a mini-zoo, pastry shops, cafes. One hour from the capital is the reserve of crocodiles in Jebri. Alligators are brought here from Madagascar, so they can be called relic animals.
