Sousse is Tunisia’s third largest city and lies on its sunny east coast. It is the most popular tourist centre in the country but manages to retain a distinct traditional flavour. This region enjoys almost constant sunshine, so attracts a steady stream of visitors all year round.
Most holidaymakers will come to experience its excellent beach life. As well as the resort’s golden sands, turquoise waters and variety of watersports, there is plenty to enjoy inland.
Sousse’s centre is quite compact and can be easily explored on foot. Centuries of history and culture are displayed within its medina walls. Its souks sell souvenir items such as leather goods and ceramics that should be haggled over with local traders. Sightseers might like to visit the Great Mosque, while daring tourists should try a camel ride.
Back at the modern part of the resort, the thriving port area is brimming with stylish bars and restaurants to spend the evening in.
Holidays in Sousse happily combine the culture and intrigue of this North African country with all the comforts of a Mediterranean beach resort.
