With its long, sandy coastline backed by the Sahara Desert, Tunisia is a haven for sun worshippers. Holidays in Tunisia combine golden beaches with golf courses, luxury hotels and indulgent spas, providing everything that's needed for a relaxing getaway. In the capital Tunis and the city of Carthage, you'll find all the ruins, mosques and markets you'd expect from a trip to North Africa. For rural charm, head inland to villages like Sid Bou Said, perched high on a hill over the Bay of Tunis. Yasmine Hammamet’s dreamy beach, marina and shopping promenade were literally made for tourists, while Sousse offers a more authentic Tunisian experience. Old Hammamet has a 12th century medina, while stylish Port el Kantoui has a smart harbour. Away from the mainland, the tranquil island of Djerba is a perfect spot to totally unwind. Beaches, luxury, culture and relaxation - why not indulge yourself and enjoy a holiday in Tunisia this year.
