Nestled on Tunisia’s east coast, overlooking the Gulf of Hammamet, Sousse is among the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
Providing relaxing beach getaways and city breaks in Tunisia all wrapped into one blissful package, Sousse is much more than just a bucket and spade destination. It also offers family fun, fascinating cultural spots and sumptuous cuisine, and still has an air of the ‘real’ Tunisia, with many going about their daily routines, unhindered by tourists.
Oh, and the weather in Sousse is perfect for sun-seekers year-round, with temperatures rarely dropping below 10 degrees Celsius and hitting highs of 30 during the summer.

At more than 3,000 years old, Sousse offers a glorious step back in time, with its central Medina – a UNESCO World Heritage site – Great Mosque and Ribat providing fascinating historical insight, but the old is balanced out by the chic and modern, thanks to its range of luxury hotel resorts.
