15 Great Beachfront Hotels in Tunisia for Families

Share the Love

Last Updated on January 10, 2024 by Suzy

With sun-drenched beaches and a great choice of family-friendly hotels Tunisia is a low-cost destination for UK families. We had a lovely holiday in Tunisia a few years ago. The weather was wonderful and there are several historical sites you can visit. Or you can just spend your days relaxing by the pool knowing you haven’t spent a fortune to be there. Located in North Africa summer temperatures range from 27 to 35oC. Cooling coastal breezes take the edge off the hottest days. Tunisia is also a good winter destination with daytime temperatures in December often reaching 18oC. Flight times from London take around three hours and flight costs also remain low. 

In our post, we take a look at some of the best family-friendly hotels in Tunisia. These are in locations such as Hammamet with its lovely shallow sea waters and Sousse with its fine sandy beaches. Hotels such as the AQI Venus Beach have a fantastic waterpark and the Jaz Tour Khalef is on a private beach. The UK government works closely with the Tunisian authorities to improve and provide security in major cities and tourist resorts.
