Combining stunning white sandy beaches with ancient architecture and a fascinating culture, Sousse is a great destination for those who want to enjoy a relaxing beach holiday while immersing themselves in a new and exciting culture. If you’re planning a holiday to the Tunisia resort of Sousse then check out our guide to the best things to do in Sousse.
Hit the beach
Many hotels are located just across the street from the long stretch of beach that starts in the centre of Sousse, and it’s a great place to spend the day. Here you can swim in crystal clear waters or splash around safely in the shallows, try your hand at a range of water sports or simply lie back and soak up the sun.
See the sights
Sousse is an ancient city and nowhere is this more evident than in the beautiful medina. Marvel at the Great Mosque, learn about Tunisia’s fascinating past in the Traditional Tunisian House museum or climb to the top of the Ribat’s watchtower to enjoy stunning views across the city and beyond.
From the bustling street markets within the medina to the city’s more modern shops and boutiques, Sousse is a shoppers’ paradise. Try your hand at haggling for a bargain on locally made goods like carpets, jewellery and ceramics, or visit one of the city’s growing number of artisans to pick up a souvenir to last a life time.
Enjoy an evening out
While all the hotels offer bars and entertainment on site, it’s worth venturing out into the city to enjoy an evening dining out in an authentic restaurant or cafe. You’ll find an abundance of fresh fish and seafood on the menu, as well as traditional dishes like couscous and tajine. And if you’re lucky you may even find an establishment offering traditional music alongside your evening meal… although be aware that most establishments will not serve alcohol.
