Weather in Tunisia

























May to September? Tunisia's in full summer mode. Temps are sizzling between 25°C and 35°C. Perfect for those who love to splash in the Mediterranean or get their tan game strong on the beaches of Hammamet. And, honestly, who can resist an ice-cold drink on a hot Tunisian afternoon?

But here's where Tunisia tosses in a twist. December to February, things get a tad cooler. We’re talking 10°C to 18°C. So, if the thought of melting in the heat isn’t your jam, this is your window. It’s the optimal chill to wander through ancient ruins or dive deep into bustling Tunisian markets.

Now, for those who can't pick a side, there's a middle ground. March, April, October and November see Tunisia striking a balance - not too hot, not too cold. Ideal for, let's say, a camel trek or a leisurely day in Sidi Bou Said.

To wrap it up: Whether you’re about that sun-soaked beach life or keen on cooler adventures, Tunisia weather has got your back.
