BRIT holidaymakers flocked back to the North African country of Tunisia last year and it's one of the hottest holiday destinations for summer 2019.
Located between the Med and Sahara Desert, you'll get plenty of sun, sand and sea – and all just a three-hour flight from the UK.
Tunisia has a year-round warm, mild climate and you can expect plenty of sunshine from May to October, often peaking at 35C during the summer.
Planning your 2019 beach break? Read on for our round-up of the best Tunisia resorts and the cheapest all-inclusive holiday deals for your trip.
Hammamet and Yasmine Hammamet
With a 13th-century old town, Medina and castle, Old Hammamet has a traditional feel with bustling souks and lush botanical gardens – while neighbouring Yasmine Hammamet is more modern and European with attractive bar and restaurant-lined boulevards.
Both areas boast beautiful white sandy beaches and plenty of places to stay for couples and families alike – plus the 'Carthageland Hammamet' theme park to keep the kids busy.
Book an all-inclusive one-week Hammamet beach break this summer with Love Holidays from £125pp – including flights and hotel.
Book a Yasmine Hammamet escape with Thomas Cook from £308pp for seven nights all-inclusive this June.
Sousse and Port el Kantaoui
The 'Pearl of the Sahel', Sousse boasts quality beaches, a 9th-century Great Mosque and a UNESCO-listed Medina.
Neighbouring Port El Kantaoui offers up entertainment, nightlife and activities such as water sports and golf.
Stay at either resort to get the best of both worlds, with miles of white sandy, beaches stretching in-between the two towns.
