Approximately three and a half hours from most UK airports, holidays to Tunisia are perfect for a short-haul exotic escape. Despite the country’s location in the north of Africa, package holidays to Tunisia offer both an affordable and accessible taste of a completely different culture. Just hours away from home - yet a world away from everyday life - holidays to Tunisia are where old meets new against a backdrop of palm-fringed shorelines.
Most airlines from the UK travel through to Enfidha, approximately 30 miles from Hammamet, with convenient connections to other popular areas of Tunisia. Heading here means you’re venturing to a holiday hotspot that promises traditional markets, unspoilt, uncrowded shores, and a good selection of activities from sports to sightseeing.
Great-value holidays to Hammamet are quickly becoming a popular destination for families. Attractions such as Carthageland and Friguia Animal Park are two child-friendly attractions in the area that can easily be included into a week away to ensure the kids are kept entertained. Youngsters aside, Hammamet really does give the best of all worlds. Huge stretches of powdery white sand make this resort ideal for beach lovers, while mosques and the quaint medina make Hammamet a resort to suit the adult explorer with a taste for culture.
Those who like the finer things in life will enjoy a stay at the Port El Kantaoui. Although retaining its charming African character, Port El Kantaoui spoils holidaymakers with its cosmopolitan marina, grand golf course, and plenty of private beaches. Excursion wise, Port El Kantaoui is just a stone’s throw away from El Jem, the stunning Roman amphitheatre ruins in which Gladiator was filmed.
While all Tunisia resorts provide a pass to the local lifestyle, Sousse simply envelopes all travellers in a spellbinding blanket of scents, tastes and sights. A real treat for the senses, the ancient cobbled medina is a maze of eateries, souks and spiritual structures. The idyllic sands are superb for safely soaking up some of the mid-30 degree C heat that hits Tunisia during the height of summer.
Djerba is a recent addition to the list of popular Tunisian destinations. Dubbed as the next big thing, Djerba is based upon the Houmt Souk, ‘the market neighbourhood’, where large numbers of souks sell authentic African goods, including pottery and textiles. The resort also boasts the most glorious coastlines, making Djerba a holiday heaven for those who enjoy sunshine, shopping and bathing on soft sands.
