    The East Coast travel guide

    Overview

    Burgeoning holiday resorts in Tunisia stems from European sun-seekers tiring of the northern Mediterranean coast and islands. The North African country is just two and a half hours from the UK by plane and is blessed with stunning beaches.

    To add to the charm, the country also boasts the mysterious and magical Sahara Desert, an abundance of historical sites, intriguing cuisine, and a modern infrastructure providing all the comforts of home.

    Tunisia's riviera extends for about 800 miles (1,287km) south of the capital, Tunis, and boasts an abundance of luxury resort towns the most notable of which are Hammamet, Port El Kantaoui, Sousse and Monastir (Skanes). The strip is bursting with attractive hotels and apartment blocks, and is fast becoming known as one of the best value destinations in the Mediterranean.
