To the east of Morocco, between the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea, lies Tunisia, a fabulously exotic destination within easy reach of northern Europe.
Tunisia offers fantastic water sports opportunities for most of the year. However, should one tire of relaxing by the pool at a luxury hotel, a holiday here also has the opportunity to immerse oneself in the fascinating heritage of ancient Roman, Arab, Berber, plus view Phoenician sites such as the famous city of Carthage and settlements that grew up because of Tunisia’s unique combination of coastline and particularly fertile soil.
Known as ‘the bread basket of the Roman Empire’ in ancient times, it is still famous for its delicious food, a legacy to the country’s French colonial past.
If one needs to work off all that delicious food golf, tennis, diving, riding, surfing and sailing are available all year round, plus windsurfing can be arranged at many resorts. Trekking in the mountains also offers the opportunity to get away from it all, while therapy of a more commercial nature is afforded by the souks.
With its combination of sun, sea, sport, culture and welcoming local people, Tunisia is a great destination.
