Sandy shores and salty sprays only minutes away
Although it's one of Tunisia's oldest cities, Sousse hasn't missed the boat when it comes to modern and luxurious beachfront accommodation. The various beaches along the coastline offer a nice break away from the bustling city. One hotel known for its romantic ambience is the Scheherazade Hotel, which caters primarily towards couples, featuring swim up bars, multiple restaurants and a grassy lawn on the beach.
Alternatively, check into the Riadh Palms Hotel for 4-star luxury and a relaxed atmosphere. You can start your day with a buffet breakfast on an outdoor patio, before heading down to the beach, washing the salt off with a dip in the tree-lined pool and hitting the onsite nightclub for a boogie on the dance floor.
Budget accommodation in Sousse
Travelling the world on a strict budget can be difficult, but fortunately Sousse helps you out by providing a few affordable accommodation options that won't make you scrunch your nose up. Stay at the Hotel El Menchia or at the Nour Justinia for simple and clean accommodation right near the ocean.
With the money saved on accommodation you'll be able to more easily afford certain sightseeing highlights such as the Great Mosque, Ribat and the Mosaic Museum. You may also want to visit the Camel Market to purchase unique artisan goods.
Explore Sousse with the kids
One of the richest travel experiences is being able to share new cultures with family and friends. Tunisia's exotic culture is certainly apparent in Sousse, particularly in the Heritage-listed Medina, but also at The Kasbah, within the Catacombs, and at the Friguia Animal Park.
Great family-friendly accommodation is available at the award-winning Marhaba Beach Hotel with a classic beach vibe and multiple onsite eateries. Keep everyone entertained with the onsite recreational facilities such as watersports, tennis courts, archery and kids' club, or simply chill out on the beach or by the outdoor pool.
