    Hi all - as I've just written in another post, tunisia may only be small but we have many different weather regions. We are in winter now and it can range from very cold to quite mild depending on the area. Winter can go until March/April and believe me in the south (dessert), the nights are intensely cold. However on the coast around the beach resort areas there is milder temperatures and of course quite sunny.

    Hello Sam - gosh - be calm we are here! OK it depends where you are in Tunisia in March as to what you can expect the weather to be. It will range from cool to cold in the North, milder on the east coast, to freezing in the desert. If you let me have more info or go to one of the weather sites that David has suggested then you will find all the information you need.

    Enjoy your stay in Tunisie

    Kayleigh - generally it's cold in February but again, depends on where you are as to what the temps are like. Unless you are from Iceland I would forget about tanning and swimming in the Med.

    Hi Tanya,

    the areas you are looking at staying are purpose built tourist resort areas aimed mostly at those who wish to relax on the beach for a few days. they are clean and generally the hotels are good. there are things to do in and around the area. Tataouine is wonderful as are the other areas you mention, however, they are quite a distance from Skanes. It would be difficult for you with local transport as much of the time you need to go to Tunis to get to these places. Many of the hotels offer trips to these areas and it is a very convenient way for most tourists to see some of this country. Find out if your hotel can organise this, or alternatively, there are many tour companies in Skanes that offer day trips etc.

    Hi,

    Me and my girlfriend will be going to Tunisia from 23rd June - 4th July 2010...can anyone give an insight into what sort of weather we can expect? We are staying in the resort of Yasmine Hammamet.

    Cheers- Taylor

    GH - It will be warm, hot, warm, hot LOL!! June can become very hot, but on the coast it will be a little milder with nice sea breezes. You can dive, fish, wind sail etc. etc. There are many vendors of these sorts of things in Skanes and I am sure you will enjoy it. But also take a wander around Monastir and Sousse which are very close to Skanes. PEK is great for eating and has lots of restaurants/cafes around the marina areas.

    I hope you enjoy your vacation

    Taylor - in a word it will be hot! Yasmine Hammamet is quite a tourist area but very clean and very nice. Lots of nice restaurants and cafes. I am sure you are going to enjoy your stay.

    Hi Maggie, lucky you getting a tan in January. It's winter here and January can be quite cold, however, Skanes is a little milder than the north and you may well have some sunny days.

    You will all be absolutely fine. Tunisia is an extremely safe country and we all want to make sure that you enjoy your stay here. It is not super conservative but I always advise visitors, especially ladies, to be more modest in their clothing than perhaps they are at home. You will earn the respect of the locals and will feel more comfortable. the children will enjoy themselves, Tunisians adore children so they will be your gateway to 'extras' LOL!! I can't think of anywhere you can't take the girls, except perhaps walking down dark alleyways in the wee hours, but that goes for anywhere.

    I do hope you will enjoy your stay and if you need further information I am more than happy to help

    HI Iam going to tunisia 14th march 2010, and would like to know if the ATM machines around as i will be staying in port el kantoui. Plus im hoping for some warm weather ?

    Charhmaim13 - If you are staying in PEK then you can expect some nice warm weather. Just the last few days it has been quite warm but in Spring the weather can change quite quickly, but I am sure you will have some sun. There are many ATM in PEK so you will not have any problems, but you should check with your bank as to the amount it will cost per withdrawal. Some of the banks here charge the home bank quite a lot.

    I hope you will enjoy your visit.

    I am going to Tunisia on 26th Feb along with my 8 month old. How is the weather there these days and what kind of clothes should we take along
  • edited November -1
    Zee - it will depend on where you are going to be as to what the weather will be like. It is now very nice and warm on the east coast resort areas but it is cool in the evening. If you bring some layers for you and your baby you should both be fine.

    Hiya,

    2. We are not married, will we be o.k sharing a room?
    3. Where's the best place to visit
    4. Should I be concerned that I am a red head?

    Hi Sandee

    I can try to help:

    1. weather will be warm - yah!!
    2. you should check with the hotel that they are ok with you sharing. Usually if you are two foreigners it should not be a problem
    3. ok this question is hard to answer and depends on your interests but you can take a louage to Sousse for the day or to Monastir or Hammamet or even venture further for a day in Tunis the capital to see the old city and perhaps some of Carthage
    4. No you shouldn't be concerned that you have red hair

    I hope you enjoy your vacation

    Visiting Skanes on 7th April for a week. Don't know what to pack. The weather forecasts look varied. Please can anyone tell me what the weather is like? Is the beach out of the question?
  • edited November -1
    Rach - the weather is starting to become a little warmer, however the sea temperature is still quite cool. But I am sure it will be nice to be on the beach. You should bring layers and something warm for the evening as it is still quite cool after the sun goes down.
