What to do in
MONASTIR ?

Built on a peninsula and surrounded by beaches and large cliffs, Monastir is the southern-most city on the Gulf of Hammamet. It's also one of the most prestigious - Caesar himself chose to base himself here as he waged war on Pompeii. Two thousand years have passed since the emperor of Rome stayed here, but this Sahelian city continues to entice. Peaceful, modern, and prosperous, it holds its own among the top tourist destinations in Tunisia.

    For millions of tourists, the Gulf of Hammamet is paradise on earth, and Monastir is one of its crown jewels. A status that the birthplace of Habib Bourguiba, hero of Tunisian independence, owes as much to its peaceful charm and superb climate as it does to its cultural heritage and 4- and 5-star ultra-modern hotels.

    This magical cocktail enthrals the many families who, summer and winter alike, cross the Mediterranean to enjoy the easy living this part of the world offers. Whether they go for a long weekend or an entire week, they all leave relaxed in both body and spirit, with a bronze sheen on their skin and a head full of great memories.

    Memories of golden sand and sunscreen, jet skis and Thalasso, visits to museums and mosques; of strolls through the Medina, shopping in the souks of Nabeul and Sousse, and the well-seasoned delight of Fatma Fingers or else the sweetness of Makroudh, sampled in the Kairouan old city.

  • The top 10 things to do in Monastir

    Voir plus Voir moins

    • Let go! Dare to do nothing and simply sunbathe, either at the pool of an ultra-modern resort or on one of Monastir’s many beaches. Insider’s tip: Corniche beach is among the most beautiful in the country.
    • Take to the sea for a day trip on a boat to the Kuriat archipelago and the two small, preserved and peaceful islands you’ll find there. A true taste of paradise.
    • Visit the two monuments that Harbib Bourguiba, Tunisia’s most famous citizen, left to his hometown: the mosque and mausoleum that bear his name. The second houses the tomb of this founding father of the Tunisian Republic.
    • Storm the Ribat, a superb Monastir fortress that has loomed over the sea for more than 12 centuries. Remarkably well preserved, it offers a wonderful view of the city from the top of its ramparts.
    • Weave your way through the souks of Monastir or Sousse, its larger neighbour, in search of the best of Tunisian craftsmanship: rugs, pottery, babouches (slippers), chechias and djebbas, jewellery, tableware and copper kitchen utensils.
    • Admire the fauna in Friguia Park. Located just over an hour from Monastir, you’ll find more than 400 different animals and 60 or so different species living here in semi-freedom.
    • Go green on Monastir’s two 18-hole golf courses: the Flamingo and the Palm Links.
    • Head up to Hammamet, the northern part of the eponymous Gulf. With its boundless beaches, fort, medina, and souk, this large seaside community rivals Monastir for all that is exotic and indulgent.
    • Sample Monastir’s main speciality: couscous cherkaw, a marriage of semolina, grilled vegetables, and grilled and boiled fish.
    • After a day on one of the natural beaches of Hergla, an authentic, tranquil fishing village, settle down to a plate of royal sea bream, octopus, or freshly caught and perfectly grilled wolffish on a restaurant terrace.

  • What is the best time of year to visit Monastir?

    Monastir benefits from a Mediterranean climate that makes its winters mild and humid and its summers hot, with temperatures ranging from 17°C in January to 35°C in August.

    If you’re looking to laze about on the beach, the months from June to October are your best bet. Be careful though, because the water takes a while to warm up! The sea is just 19°C in May, but gets up to 25 or 26°C in August. This makes it the perfect time to take advantage of the various water sports on offer: jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water skiing, windsurfing, and more. But with a rise in temperature comes a rise in prices!

    Feeling adventurous? Tempted by the gorgeous, discovery-filled hikes you’ll find inland? Then definitely avoid summer and instead head over in spring or autumn, which are calmer and milder.
