What’s the weather like in Tunisia in April?The weather in Tunisia in April shows the first signs that the hot summer’s on its way. Temperatures are well over 20°C and there are less showers than the spring and winter. April’s a popular time to visit Tunisia and relax by the sandy beaches before the busier summer crowds arrive.
Geographical influencesThe hot Tunisia weather in April is thanks to its location in the far north of Africa.
