What’s the weather like in Tunisia in June?
Tunisia’s in the centre of North Africa’s Mediterranean coast, with the south of the country dominated by the Sahara Desert. This means that the weather’s hot and dry in June. There’s differences in weather around the country, but at popular holiday destinations on the Mediterranean coast, such as Hammamet, you can expect soaring temperatures and hardly any rain in June.
Although Tunisia’s famous for its hot weather, there’s quite big differences in weather because of the country’s geography. Desert areas in the south are really hot and dry, with big differences in temperatures between day and night, while in the north and east where Tunisia meets the Mediterranean you’ll find things less extreme. You’ll get cool breezes on the coast, while the Cap Bon peninsula generally has quite comfortable weather, which makes it popular.
The average high in Hammamet is 31ºC in June, so make sure you bring a decent choice of swimwear. You won’t need to pack too many warmer things for the evenings as it stays quite pleasant, cooling to 18ºC at night. The sea temperature’s 22ºC, while humidity’s moderate and there’s just 7mm of rain over three days. You can expect 15 hours of daylight with ten hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so take care in the sun,and pack plenty of sun cream. The sun sets at around 7.30pm.
Things to Do
The weather’s perfect for relaxing on Tunisia’s beaches in June; Hammamet Beach is popular and you can also ride a camel along the sands. Try jetskiing or waterskiing, or head underwater and explore the coast’s diving scene. Feel the soft white sand between your toes at capital Tunis’ gorgeous La Marsa beach, which has the ancient Roman ruins of Carthage nearby. El Djem and El Djerba are also great coastal spots.
