Port el Kantaoui

Built to impress

Set on Tunisia’s east coast, Port El Kantaoui is a custom-built resort with traditional-style white buildings and narrow cobbled streets. Chic cafés and restaurants line a fountain-filled square and the smart marina. There’s also a PGA-standard golf course and a long, sandy beach.

A 2-sided beach

Port El Kantaoui’s beach comes in 2 parts. South of the marina, sunloungers and parasols fill the sands. To the north, the 20-kilometre stretch is lined with hotels, which keep their patches looking spotless – and there are plenty of pristine spots in between to use, too. Whichever direction you head in, you’ll get all the full set of watersports.

Golf by the sea

Golfers here have a pair of 18-hole, par-72 courses that – conveniently – share the same, 250-acre site. The panorama course has elevated tees and fairways running between olive plantations and large lakes. And then there’s the sea course, which hugs the beach. The duo are good enough to have hosted the senior European tour on several occasions.

Daytrips to El Jem

About an hour’s drive gets you to El Jem. What you’ve got here is an incredibly well-preserved Roman theatre – one of the largest ever built. Scale-wise, it’s not far short of Rome’s Colosseum – in fact, it used to hold around 35,000 spectators. It’s one of UNESCO’s now, though Hollywood borrowed it to make the movie Gladiator.
