Compare the best Tunisia holidays

Whatever tickles your holiday taste buds, Tunisia is sure to whet the appetite. History and tradition shine through in this North African destination, where coastal resorts also cater for sun-seeking tourists. Holidays here can be as busy or a chilled out as you want, it's up to you to set the pace.

Why go?

Fancy a holiday that combines sun, sea and sand with history, culture and tradition? Tunisia offers all of this by the bucket-load, so here's what to expect...

Resorts to consider for sun, sea, and sand include: Hammamet - Tunisia's original tourist resort; Sousse, which is big and historic and features some wonderful beaches; Skanes - quiet and good for family holidays; Monastir, which is crammed with tradition and culture; Port El Kantaoui, the country's first purpose-built tourist town, centred on a delightful marina; and the beautiful island of Djerba just off the coast. The capital, Tunis, also sits on the waterfront and offer beach breaks as well as city attractions, such as the bustling medina.

Wherever you go, you will be within easy reach of shopping - both ultra-chic and traditional; incredible food; a stunning landscape of mountains, desert, and beach; and a warm and hospitable welcome. Other activities includes sports such as sailing and golf, camel rides and visits to water parks and the film sets of movie franchises such as 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones'. Just remember that Tunisia is a Muslim country: dress codes and alcohol bans will be widely enforced, although things are certainly more relaxed at coastal destinations and their splendid hotels.
