Burgeoning holiday resorts in Tunisia stems from
European sun-seekers tiring of the northern Mediterranean coast and
islands. The North African country is just two and a half hours
from the UK by plane and is blessed with stunning beaches.
To add to the charm, the country also boasts the
mysterious and magical Sahara Desert, an abundance of historical
sites, intriguing cuisine, and a modern infrastructure providing
all the comforts of home.
Tunisia's riviera extends for about 800 miles
(1,287km) south of the capital, Tunis, and boasts an abundance of
luxury resort towns the most notable of which are Hammamet, Port El
Kantaoui, Sousse and Monastir (Skanes). The strip is bursting with
attractive hotels and apartment blocks, and is fast becoming known
as one of the best value destinations in the Mediterranean.
