Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Tunisia is one of the very best North American countries to visit when you’re craving a sunny vacation. Beautiful beach towns and resorts are scattered all around it and here are some of the most popular with tourists and locals alike.

Sidi Bou Said

Sidi Bou Said earned itself the nickname “Santorini of Tunisia” thanks to its cobbled streets and blue-and-white houses. It’s located just 20 minutes away from the capital Tunis, so why not take a short ride and check it out?


Hammamet is one of Tunisia’s most popular summer towns thanks to its beautiful beaches. Yassmine Hammamet is its No. 1 resort and it’s home to dozens of lavish hotels that make it a huge hit with foreign visitors.


Located on the Gulf of Hammamet, Sousse is one of Tunisia’s leading tourist resorts. It will win you over with its sandy beaches backed by orchards and olive groves and a wide range of restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos that you can discover during your visit.


Monastir is one of the first cities people think of when someone mentions Tunisia and it deserves all the attention it’s getting. Its beaches are top of the line, but its rich history and culture also shouldn’t be overlooked.
