Tunisia: Winter Sun

Tunisia's near year-round warm climate is one of the major reasons for its growth as a holiday destination with regions like Djerba averaging 324 sunshine days a year. Winter sun holidays in Tunisia are also particularly popular around the Hammamet region, with many hotels following Spain by attracting longer-stay, more mature winter sun seekers with a variety of appealing deals.

It can still be relatively cold in the north, however, and winter sun in Tunisia is not infallible but remains a good overall bet against many of its competitors. Some resorts such as Yasmine Hammamet can seem oddly deserted in the winter season, others remain lively and busy.
