Desert explorations, splash-ready pools and ancient cities are on the cards with a family holiday to Tunisia.

Beach days

Tunisia is home to a cocktail of family-ready beaches. Hammamet’s stretches of white sands are great for kids, plus the warm waters and marine life make it a great spot for scuba diving and snorkelling. Or, treat the brood to a beach day in Monastir, which can be explored by boat, surfboard, or – if you’re feeling fancy – horseback.

Tasty Tunisian cuisine

You can’t go to Tunisia without sampling the local fare. Drawing on the country’s rich history, the food here mixes up North African spice with a dash of French influence. Adults will love the complex flavours, but if you’re treating the kids to a snack, we recommend trying brik a l'oeuf – a thin sheet of pastry, filled with an egg yolk, folded into a triangular shape and deep fried.

Desert exploring

If you’re travelling with older kids in tow, why not plan an adventure trip into the Sahara Desert? Bundle into a 4x4 to explore a timeless landscape. Tours can take you to the amphitheatre in El Djem – one of the biggest and best-preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world – and even to see the shooting locations of the Star Wars movies.

Family-ready resorts

Tunisia’s not short on family-friendly resorts. Take your pick from hotels that offer child-friendly facilities like kids’ clubs and sports activities. Plus, most of them are close to the beach, with top pool scenes to boot.

Family holidays to Tunisia come complete with your flights, hotel and transfers in one handy bundle.
