Tunisia has long been seen an affordable option for people looking to enjoy a HOT Holiday in the sun in somewhere different to traditional destinations like Spain and the Algarve.
Located in Northern Africa, Tunisia benefits from a Mediterranean climate that makes it suitable for a break in the sun no matter what time of year it may be.
During the summer months, expect to see the sun shining in the sky for twelve hours a day and to see temperatures that run into the 30s, with spring and autumn being comfortably in the 20s.
Because there isn’t much of a sea breeze, many people prefer to visit around this time when things are slightly cooler.
Rich in culture and history, Tunisia is home to a number of beach resorts where you can relax on golden sand, with the likes of Hammamet providing plenty of opportunities to make the most of the favourable weather conditions.
But head away from the beaches and you can see the history and the culture of the country at every turn.
Take a trip to one of the many local markets and you can enjoy the opportunity to barter for a bargain, with handmade gifts galore alongside a wide variety of spices that will leave a unique aroma floating on the air.
You could also pay a visit to historic mosques and castles, such as the Great Mosque in Hammamet that is one of the oldest to be found in North Africa.
Add into the mix restaurants and bars that provide an authentic flavour of Tunisia, ruins that date back to roman times, and a range of modern day attractions focused on the tourist market – such as amusement and waterparks.
If you desire a break from the norm, Tunisia might just be the place for your trip away from home.
