When to go
For those looking for winter sun holidays in Tunisia should aim for January or February and September or October, when hotel rates are cheaper and the weather is cool and there is some rain. During the hot high season, from June to August, it is much harder to find a cheap holiday to Tunisia as hotel rates are up, car rentals to be scarce and the street markets and museums are filled with tourists. During this period the coastal towns are at their most lively and it's also when the Tunisian tourist authorities lay on a number of superb festivals in old Roman sites. If you are looking for a more independent cheap holiday to Tunisia, it is best between mid-March and mid-May when the days are pleasantly warm and the countryside is at its prettiest after the winter rains. November is the best time for visiting the Sahara desert to the south. The date harvest (which produces some of the best dates in the world) has just finished and Douz and Tozeur host back-to-back desert festivals. .
What to do
With its typical Mediterranean climate and rich history there are a number of resorts where you can spend your holiday to Tunisia. Resorts like Hammamet and Nabeul offer easy access to the fantastic ruins at Carthage as well as the excitement of Tunis itself. For those looking to add a desert adventure to their holidays, Tunisia has plenty to offer with many long and short excursions available to the Sahara and Atlas mountains to the south. For golfing fans Port El Kantaoui has excellent golfing facilities and the island of Djerba to the south offers something a little different for your holiday to Tunisia, with a large resort just north of its main town and medina. All in all a holiday to Tunisia offers a wide range of possibilities, excellent beaches, all at reasonable prices. We'll also help you shop around the market to make sure you get the very best prices on car hire from Tunis - often a cheaper option than hotel transfers.
