Tunisia is one of the most sought-after destinations on the tourism market. Beautiful beaches, a varied excursion program and a reasonable cost with a decent level of service - all this makes tourists return to this country.
The personal experience of a week-long acquaintance with the country gave an understanding of why Tunisia is so attractive.
Spontaneous travel is facilitated by the absence of the need to obtain a visa and a short flight from the central part of Russia. What could be more convenient for an unscheduled vacation or satisfying a sudden desire to spend a weekend at sea ?!
The duration of the flight from Moscow is a little over 4 hours. The charters of one of the main tour operators in Tunisia, Coral Travel, fly from Moscow to 2 main resort airports. For example, you can fly to Enfidu daily, and to Djerba island 5 times a week.
The next plus when choosing Tunisia is its sandy beaches. This is the ideal solution for those who prefer to feel fine, free-flowing sand under their feet and cannot imagine their vacation without this. The total length of the sea coast is 1300 km. The most popular resorts are Sousse, Monastir, Hammamet, Mahdia and the island of Djerba. Many hotels are located on the first line and have their own well-equipped beaches. So you definitely won't have to worry about renting a sun lounger.
A comfortable, gently sloping entrance, amazing turquoise sea water, photogenic beaches and the African sun that instantly gives your skin an even tan.
Separately, it is worth noting the level of security at the resorts. Security is ensured at the government level in cities and on the roads, as well as on the territory of hotels - by professionally trained employees. The metal frames at the entrance to the hotel and the security guards constantly on duty at the beach instill confidence and tranquility.
Thalassotherapy is another reason to choose a vacation in Tunisia. To join the procedures of health and body care in Tunisia is not pampering, but rather a necessity! This is due to both the special healing properties of the sources and the naturalness of cosmetics, and the low cost of services. For example, a relaxing forty-minute full body massage even in the thalasso center of a five-star hotel will cost you 1,800 rubles, and a full range of facials with deep cleansing, massage, nutrition and rejuvenation will cost you no more than 3,000 rubles. If time permits, give preference to a full-fledged treatment program for 4 or 6 days with 3-5 procedures daily.
The choice of direction is up to you - it can be a weight loss, rejuvenation or anti-stress course. One thing is invariable - treatment by the sea (and this is how the term "thalassotherapy" is translated) under the supervision of specialists will give its results immediately. Body wraps, peels, water treatments and massages can restore health, calm thoughts and feel refreshed.
Going to Tunisia, do not neglect the excursion program. Believe me, a country with such a rich history has something to surprise and entertain. Roman cities and archaeological sites are a rich heritage left by the Phoenicians, Romans, Ottomans and French.
Sahara Jeep Tour
If time permits, then acquaintance with Africa should start with the main thing. From a trip to the Sahara! There are not so few countries whose territory the Sahara has taken possession of at least partially, there are 10 of them. But Tunisia is perhaps the most accessible to visit from this list. Yes, early ascents and almost 1000 kilometers of path are pretty tiring, but believe me, the impressions that you are guaranteed to get from this adventure compensate for this fatigue.
The two-day trip inland begins with a visit to the Roman amphitheater in the city of El Jem, built in the image and likeness of the Roman Colosseum, introduces the local indigenous people - the Troglodyte Berbers, includes a walk in a camel caravan and watching the sunset in the desert. After a short overnight stay at a hotel in Douz, the journey continues with dawn at the bottom of the El Jerid salt lake, a visit to the Shebik natural oasis, a real rally race across the desert dunes, an acquaintance with the deserted planet Tatooine, the filming location of George Lucas' Star Wars. It should be noted that Tunisia is a very photogenic and cinematic country. It is a favorite filming location for many filmmakers, and even today new sets are being built in the desert for films that have yet to be filmed and seen. The last stop on the route will be the Uqba Cathedral Mosque in Kairouan, the fourth most important mosque in the Muslim world.
Those who are not ready to spend 2 days of vacation on visiting the Sahara can choose a one-day excursion to another entertaining ancient city - Carthage and the current capital of the country, the city of the same name, Tunisia. A great opportunity to feel the connection of times through 2000 years of history from the remains of the ancient city, destroyed before our era. to the modern capital of the state with a lovely French boulevard and excellent shopping opportunities. In addition, the excursion includes a visit to the picturesque town of Sidi Bou Said, a place of inspiration for many painters and writers. Blue and white houses, narrow streets, panoramic views of the port - all this makes the heart sigh with delight. There is no doubt that you will return from this trip with hundreds of photos that you will share and revise more than once.
In general, walks in the medines of Tunisia are a separate pleasure. Do not forget to take with you several sets of beautiful clothes, because the desire to be photographed in the labyrinths of the old city will always be with you.
The medina of the city of Hammamet deserves special attention. Whimsically winding streets, full of charm, all the same blue and white coloring of houses, carved doors and shutters, chirping birds and lazily wandering cats in the depths of the streets and beautiful sandy beaches and the amazing color of the sea outside the perimeter of the old city.
Or the incredibly beautiful port of El Kantaoui, located 10 kilometers from the city of Sousse. It is a pleasure to make an evening promenade here and dine in one of the many restaurants overlooking the yacht harbor.
By the way, food here is a separate cult. Tunisia is a real gastronomic paradise both for connoisseurs of seafood (who will like tuna, dorada, and local stonebass fish), and for those who prefer meat. The traditional dish is lamb baked in tagine with many spices, and the local couscous and vegetables are most often served as a side dish.
Where to stay? Most often, a tourist makes a choice in favor of a hotel with its own thalasso center on the territory, a favorite all-inclusive food system and active animation.
The developed hotel infrastructure of Tunisia allows us to offer accommodation of any level. And even a three-star hotel is likely to be quite worthy.
Indeed, there is plenty to choose from, and travel agents will help you to decide. Coral Travel has more than 150 Tunisian hotels in the assortment, and three of them operate the Sun Family Club concept, which ensures that not only you, but also your children will enjoy your vacation.
Well-known world hotel chains open hotels here under their own brand and are guaranteed to endow them with their own service standards. Iberostar Kantaoui Bay 5 * can be one of the hotels that certainly deserves your attention. Wonderful location 1 km from the port of El Kantaoui, own thalassotherapy center and justifiably high rating on popular online booking services.
In general, Tunisia is primarily about flavor. The relative poverty of the African continent is combined here with the hospitality and friendliness of the locals. A rich excursion program and all kinds of beauty rituals will not let you get bored and will be in demand by various categories of tourists. Opportunities for families with children will turn a joint vacation into a memorable vacation!
Tunisia awaits you for the first, second and tenth time, always ready to surprise you again. Detailed information about the flight program and the cost of tours on the website www.coral.ru
