Sousse is a beautiful city situated on the Tunisian coast. A port city bathed in the gentle waves of the Mediterranean and the Gulf of Hammamet, which possesses an undoubted appeal for those seeking a fantastic vacation. Its white sand beaches and transparent waters are often compared to those of the Caribbean. But Sousse is much more than fantastic beaches.
You can visit the city’s museums, minarets, age-old walls and its great Medina, declared Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. It is the soul of the city, and all of the the city’s life revolves around it; winding, colored narrow streets, picturesque little shops and 8m walls, so high that 24 mosques are housed within them.
The best thing to do is immerse yourself in local life, enjoying the authentic Tunisian cuisine, haggling in the souks, trying your luck in the casino or dancing until dawn on the beach, rocked by the Mediterranean breeze.
As well as trying the traditional couscous, the famous brik or the harissa, you must not miss your chance to sample the delicious mint tea accompanied by some of the traditional sweet dishes made from honey and nuts. A genuine delicatessen!
Lovers of sport will not be disappointed by Sousse either. Diving, sailing, golf, recreational fishing and even horse-riding: Sousse is the ideal destination for enjoying sport in Tunisia.
Enjoy the most beautiful sunset from the greatest vantage point, the Medina. The sky appears to be covered in fire, in contrast with the perfect white of the houses, producing an intense effect which fills the windows with silhouettes. At nighttime you will not be lacking in rhythm; Sousse is full of parties, bars and nightclubs for all tastes, and they run onto the beach.
And if you come as a family, you must mot miss out on the experience of sailing in the famous pirate ship which explores the Gulf of Hammamet every day with a lively party atmosphere and which offers wonderful views of the Sousse coast, Port El Kantoui and Monastir.
