The Mediterranean coast is beautiful, and Tunis is one of the most spectacular cities in the region.

The Mediterranean coastline of Tunisia is a strip of paradise, scented with divine sea breezes and jasmine. A classic destination for the traditional sun-and-sand holiday, Tunisia also presents thrill-seeking travellers various terrains to explore, while history buffs will surely find passion for the country’s indigenous traditional cultures and ruins of past kingdoms.
The natural landscapes and wildlife of Tunisia are amongst the most spectacular in Africa. The north of the country, especially around the capital, is famous for its serene lakes and clouds of pink flamingos. Lush forests rise steeply from the Mediterranean coastline while farther inland the plains are full of citrus orchards and hardy olive trees.
Towards the south, the age-old African landscape reasserts itself in its own beautiful and unique fashion. From here, in the timeless sands of the Sahara, the Berbers once moved north and crossed to the Iberian Peninsula to establish a Muslim Caliphate that lasted for almost a thousand years.
Ottoman rule and the later colonial powers have left Tunisia with an abundance of influences in cities all over the country, including Tunis and Tawzar. Visit Tunisia and discover an interesting blend of old and new, African and European in this fascinating gem.
