There have been terrorist attacks in this area, but there are helpful resources that help you navigate to safer parts of the country.

Beaches are long, meaning, some extending for as long as 50 kilometers. Far from the city, most resorts can maintain a quiet and serene atmosphere as well as remain unpolluted. There are also private beaches if you’re looking to be secluded and have seashore all to yourself and practice wellness PR.
Historical and archaeological sites
For most of the places you visit, you’ll feel as though you stepped into a different century. The architecture read something off Aladdin and other Arabian themed cartoons you may have grown up watching. You can take tours around and enjoy the country’s heritage. The official language is Arabic so you’d expect to learn a lot about their culture in that regard. You’ll, however, be surprised to learn of the existence of Roman ruins- Tunisia has a long, rich history worth getting to know about.
Just on the country’s backyard is the world’s largest desert. Whether you’re looking for a desert safari or enjoy the stars at night, head over to the southern region of the country for the experience. You can also visit the salt lakes or even oasis. There are also plenty of historical sites in this desert region.
Sunshine all year round
The fantastic Mediterranean climate means that there are sunshine and warmth all year round. That means that you don’t have to be restricted to certain months of the year. January is, however, the coldest with temperatures as low as 12 degrees Celsius, and July and August is 40 degrees Celsius due to the hot desert air. On average, however, the temps are a delightful 27 degrees.
As you’d expect, getting around is quite easy. What’s even better is the unique cuisine the country has to offer. If you enjoy foreign cuisine, your taste buds will be delighted with the seafood variety.
