Fascinating Tunisia attracts thousands of tourists every year, offering not only beach holidays and a rich excursion program, but also spa treatment in picturesque resorts.
Resorts in Tunisia are not as popular as holidays in Egypt or Turkey, but this stunning Arab country has an equally rich history, gorgeous beaches and some of the best thalassotherapy centers in the world. The unique charm of the East is read here in every corner, shimmering with bright colors of the golden desert and spicy spices, emerald tropics and the azure coast.
The borders of Tunisia run from the white beaches of the Mediterranean Sea to the very depths of the sultry Sahara, forming two climatic zones. In the north and northeast, a tropical Mediterranean climate prevails, and in the south, a desert climate. The peaks of the mountains in the west of the country are covered with snow in winter. In the summer months, a more moderate temperature regime prevails there than in the northern regions of Tunisia.
In December, holidays in Tunisia focus on wellness and relaxation in thalassotherapy centers and balneological treatments. Most spa hotels have indoor swimming pools and water parks where you can combine swimming and fun with healing rituals of beauty and youth. The weather in Tunisia during this period is not conducive to a beach holiday, as the air temperature varies around 16-18 degrees.
To climb the mountains, you need to be prepared for subzero temperatures, as well as strong winds and cold nights in the desert, when the thermometer reaches only 8 degrees. Therefore, the excursion part of the rest in Tunisia may be unavailable until spring.
In the north of the country, due to the abundance of rainfall, all the streets are covered with lush blooming greens of citrus and almonds, and the olive harvest is ripening. At the beginning of winter, Dusa and Tozera host international festivals dedicated to the ancient customs and culture of the local population. Despite the abundance of storms, in winter in Tunisia you can find closed beaches and sunbathe perfectly.
Sightseeing tours to Tunisia start working in March. The temperature at the resort does not drop below 20 degrees, so trips to attractions and daytime desert safaris will take place in a comfortable environment. By the end of spring, many brave travelers open the swimming season, as the water warms up to 19 degrees, and the air temperature reaches 26 degrees.
For connoisseurs of everything ancient, in April, you can visit the archaeological festival in Tataouin, dedicated to the culture and art of the southern regions of the country. In May, a vacation in Tunisia with children is considered the most optimal in terms of budget and weather conditions. Water sports are becoming available on the beaches, including yachting and fishing.
Despite the fact that the air at the beginning of summer warms up to 30 degrees, the water remains at a level not higher than 21 degrees. Holidays in Tunisia in June are suitable for the elderly, children and those who do not tolerate the heat, as the winds in the seas cool and refresh the air.

In addition to the sights of Tunisia, tourists can visit the famous horse races in Sidi Thabet and Meknessi, as well as enjoy jazz compositions at the Tabarka music festival.
Holidays in Tunisia in July can be overshadowed only by the season, which will last until September and winds. The air temperature can warm up to 33 degrees, and the water in the sea rises to a comfortable 26 degrees. In July-August, it can be uncomfortable in the desert both during the day, when there is unbearable stuffiness outside, and at night, when the temperature approaches zero. In the resorts of Tunisia El Jem and Hammamet during this period, music and theater festivals are held.
In August, beach holidays in Tunisia reach their peak. The water does not drop below 28 degrees, and the air can warm up to 35 degrees. Tourists at the end of summer are better off choosing the northern resorts of the country and being more in the shade. Thalassotherapy spa resorts are no less popular during this period, where you can not only refresh, but also relax. The risk of severe sandstorms increases in the desert, so exotic safaris can be unsafe. All music lovers can spend their calendar summer in Tunisia with the Tabarka Music Festival.
Tunisia in September delights travelers with the long-awaited freshness and comfortable temperatures for sightseeing trips. All amateur photographers in the beginning of autumn can demonstrate their talent at the underwater photography competition in Tabarka.
