Port el Kantaoui

If you're looking for an all-inclusive resort experience in Tunisia, look no further than Port el Kantaoui. A town built expressly for the purpose of attracting tourists, Port el Kantaoui is a tourist resort town located just six miles north of Sousse on the central Tunisian coast, in an area known as the Sahel, and together with Djerbe is one of the most popular attractions in the country. Although equipped with modern buildings and amenities, the entire town has been built in the traditional Tunisian style, with bright white buildings, narrow cobbled streets and archways, and quays lit by lamplight at night. The Port el Kantaoui Tunisia beaches are an ideal place for vacationers to get their fill of the sun and waves on the azure Mediterranean. The focus of the resort town is the large artificial marina that harbors luxury yachts and sailboats, and it is the point of departure for many water activities such as water-skiing, jet-skiing, sailing, and glass-bottom boat cruises. This resort is not the best way to see authentic Tunisia, but many who arrive for a Port el Kantaoui holiday find it difficult to leave its pleasures and comforts.

With more than 300 sunny days each year, you are almost guaranteed beautiful weather when you visit the Port el Kantaoui Tunisia beaches. North of the marina, many beachfront hotels line a beautiful beach that also offers some public stretches for tourists looking to relax in relative privacy. South of the marina between Port el Kantaoui and the town of Sousse is the more famous beach of Boujaffar. Many water activities, such as scuba diving, windsurfing, and snorkeling, are available at Port el Kantaoui Tunisia beaches. After a day of sunbathing, many visitors head to the many good waterfront restaurants and bars for a taste of Tunisian cuisine and a happening nightlife.

Many tourists travel to Port el Kantaoui to get away from the frenetic pace and worries of the daily grind, and what better way is there to do so than to go golfing? Golf in Port el Kantaoui is one of the most popular activities at the resort, and it is indeed one of the reasons many people spend their holidays there. The PGA-approved golf course covers 250 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, and is renowned for its diversity of ornamental trees, flowers and even wildlife. Those who wish to golf in Port el Kantaoui can choose between two 18-hole golf courses, the Panorama Course, which winds through various districts of Port el Kantaoui, and the less difficult Sea Course, which extends from the beach up the hill of the Port el Kantaoui Golf Course.

Finally, if spending your holiday at the Port el Kantaoui resorts and hotels starts to feel a little too comfortable, a visit to the neighboring town of Sousse can allow you to glimpse the real Tunisia. Just 10 minutes' drive away from Port el Kantaoui, Sousse boasts some of the most interesting souks (markets) in the country, with a variety of clothing, jewelry, and carpets. The Sousse archaeological museum has some interesting Roman mosaics, and visitors will also want to visit the impressive Grand Mosque.

Whether you want to sun yourself at the beach, party in the nightclubs, explore the Mediterranean waters, or golf in Port el Kantaoui, you are certain to find something to suit your fancy at this popular resort town.
