The East Coast

The burgeoning of Tunisia's holiday resorts is a consequence of European sun-seekers having tired of the crowded beaches on the northern Mediterranean coast and islands. Just two and a half hours' flying time from the UK, holidaymakers have discovered that Tunisia, the little north African country with a big heart, is blessed with a stunning coastline where wide sandy beaches are gently lapped by the Mediterranean. 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.
