Immerse yourself in the heart of some parts of Tunisia that most tourists, especially those in a hurry, never get to see. Enjoy your holiday at a different rhythm, whether that’s on foot, on a bike or riding a Berber horse, an agile, hardy little horse. You’ll find out that Tunisia is home to some stunning Mediterranean landscapes: pine forests and scrubland, orchards and fields of wheat, white sandy coves and rocky cliffs. You can embark on an unforgettable climb up to summits at an altitude of more than a thousand metres. You can explore the intimacy of the Sahara through its canyons and gravel plains or through the immensity of the sandy desert. Countless surprises are here waiting for you: Roman remains in the middle of nowhere, lakes and migratory birds, fossils and rare plants… and plenty of traditions to experience along the way.
Tunisia is one of the biggest corridors for migrating birds. Indeed, Cap Bon, a peninsula that juts out towards Sicily, is one of the main crossroads in the Mediterranean for migrating birds. The Gulf of Gabès hosts the largest gathering of migratory waders in the Mediterranean, bringing together more than 330,000 birds. Ducks, birds of prey, passerines, gulls, waders … you can see some 400 different species of birds in Tunisia.
Jet ski and water sports
From the calm waters of Djerba in the south, to more sporty locations on the north coast, you can try windsurfing or have a go on a catamaran and a whole host of other water sports like jet skiing or kite surfing.
Whether you’re a beginner or hone your skills at the water sports of your choice at countless water sport centres dotted along the Tunisian coast.
From Tabarka and Bizerte on the northern coast to the Gulf of Gabès in the south, via the Cap Bon peninsula and the whole of the east coast, sailors have access to around thirty different ports and boatyards. Seven marinas offer cutting-edge equipment and services and facilities for winter storage. If your boat needs some maintenance, there are a number of shipyards, including some that are internationally renowned, dotted along the Tunisian coast.
