spotlight Port El Kantaoui Port El Kantaoui was developed in 1979, as a purpose built holiday resort on Tunisia’s eastern coast. Situated just 8km north of Sousse, it is a tranquil oasis of pedestrian areas built around a picturesque harbour, populated by a mix of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and souvenir shops. The resort is extremely popular with European tourists and well served with high quality hotels, a bustling marina, golf course, bars and beaches.

Constructed in a traditional Tunisian style, the area around the port is made up of white-painted buildings, cobble-paved streets and narrow walkways. Developed to cater for the quality tourist market, it’s centrepiece is an impressive 350 berth marina that harbours yachts from all parts of the Mediterranean.

This hub of holiday activity plays host to a wide variety of cafes, boutiques and souvenir shops that can be perused at your leisure whilst enjoying a leisurely stroll.

The picturesque marina also provides the evenings focal point, with lamp-lit walkways, gardens and fountains surrounded by bars and restaurants offering a range of local and international specialities.

Port El Kantaoui offers a wide variety of activities and facilities that will appeal to all kinds of holidaymakers. Golfing enthusiasts will appreciate the impressive 36-hole PGA approved championship golf course built amidst a 250 acre landscape of palms and eucalyptus trees. This was established in 1979 in conjunction with the resort, and was designed by the American Ronald Fream, who also helped develop other courses in Hammamet. But, if golf isn’t your thing, and you are feeling a little more adventurous, you will also find paragliding, scuba diving and wind surfing to keep you occupied.

For those who may wish to experience a more traditional flavour of Tunisian culture, the city of Sousse, with it’s bustling souks and Great Mosque, is only 10 minutes away by taxi, or just 20 minutes on one of the frequent, open-carriage road “tourist” trains. Here, the great medina plays host to any number of colourful stalls and shops, simply overflowing with gifts, souvenirs, clothing, rugs, etc. The museums and the towering Ribat are also well worth a visit.

Tunisia's first purpose built tourist resort is now well established as one of the country's most popular holiday destinations. It has certainly blossomed with age. From the vibrant harbour complex teaming with activity as modern yachts come and go, to the waterfront restaurants, cafes, ice-cream parlours and boutiques, Port El Kantaoui really has the wow factor. Here you will find just about everything one would expect for a family holiday, and enough to keep the most discerning visitor more than happy.

golf Tunisia is already a world-class golfing destination, with ten wonderfully varied courses and ideal weather conditions throughout the year. In fact, it is set to become even more popular as an “out of season” target for golfers from Northern Europe, keen to get away from the wintry conditions on their local courses. Although Tunisian winters might not hold the sweltering heat of the height of summer, the “winter” climate is perfect for golf, and is enjoyed by amateurs and professionals alike.

Spotlight on El Kantaoui Golf Course

The El Kantaoui Golf Course which was built in 1979 on a 130 ha site to coincide with the opening of the Port El Kantaoui resort complex, has been the venue for several Tunisian Opens. Stretching from the sea, up the side of a hill, it encompases two 18 hole courses, each offering different challenges and playing conditions. 10

Lifestyle Tunisia

The "Sea View Course" extends from the beach to the hill and the "Panorama Course" starts from the hill and extends inland through the residential district. The "Sea Course" seems to be the easier of the two as the "Panorama Course" is considered as the championship course for its technical and tougher holes surrounded by olive trees and small lakes.


The course is an ecological site, noted for its rich flora & fauna, reminiscent of a botanical garden with its varied flowers, bushes & ornamental trees.

golf Golf Resorts Offer Much More Than Just Golf Golf is said to have originated in Scotland during the 15th century. Over the years, it has gradually developed to its present form, from the earlier practice of hitting a pebble with a primitive club in the sand dunes. The popularity of Golf has made it a universal game. Golf resorts have sprung up all over the world and each has its own unique features.

GOLF COURSES IN TUNISIA

golf How to find the best Golf resort The Internet is the best and the most convenient way to locate good golf resorts. You have to browse through the various relevant sites and find the most appropriate resort where you can enjoy your game of golf and unwind. Check the facilities that they offer and match them with your own requirements. It is important to find out whether they have fitness centers, health resorts, spas, training studios and fitness instructors.

Go For Healthy Cuisine At the golf course you will shed a lot of calories throughout the day. Therefore, after a day at the golf course you would need to refuel yourself. And what better way to refuel than by having a non traditional healthy meal. A few days at golf resorts will transform you into a completely different person as far as your body, attitude and game is concerned. You will feel the power oozing out of you. When your golf vacation is over, you will start planning the next one immediately. Lifestyle Tunisia

health & beauty Tunisia is fast developing a growing reputation as a land of spas and thalasso treatment centres. Due to it’s perfect climate and relaxed mediterranean atmosphere, it is the perfect place to get away from it all. So, if you’re after the whole spa experience or more specific thalassotherapy, this is the place to be. What are the potential benefits of thalassotherapy? The many different forms of thalassotherapy that have various effects, helping you to: * cleanse your skin * relax * improve sleep quality * tone your muscles * reduce the appearance of cellulite * boost your immune system

Thalassotherapy is also thought to be beneficial in the treatment of: * respiratory conditions (e.g. asthma and bronchitis) * circulatory problems (e.g. hypertension and arteriosclerosis) * chronic inflammations (e.g. rheumatic arthritis) * post-traumatic disorders (e.g. muscle atrophy) Although there is no specific scientific evidence for the benefits of thalassotherapy, many people can give evidence about how they believe it has helped them. As with any complementary treatment, perhaps as much of the emphasis should be on the psychological wellbeing. Lifestyle Tunisia

15


health & beauty Where does thalassotherapy come from? Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek word for "sea", and refers to a multitude of treatments that use seawater and seaweed. These are designed to tone, moisturise and revitalise the body and skin, and in many cases to improve circulation. Other marine and ocean derivatives feature in thalassotherapy, too, including algae, mud and sand. Don’t worry, these are cleaned and purified before their use! Thalassotherapy treatment is presented in a bewildering array of packages - mud baths, underwater showers, hydro-massage, aromatherapy, and seaweed, mud and algae wraps. All these exist to help restore your body to a state of serenity, fitness and well-being. Although most of these treatments are available locally, wherever you live, many thalassotherapy fans opt for sunnier climates each year, offering residential stays devoted to the art of pampering, embalming and bathing their guests with various aqua jets, seaweed and mud. 16

Lifestyle Tunisia

What to expect from thalassotherapy treatment If you've opted for a seaweed wrap treatment, expect to be swathed for about an hour in seaweed and herbsoaked cloths. You will probably be wrapped up from your chest to your feet whilst lying on a thermal blanket to keep you warm. Before you start to feel dried out, your therapist will unravel you and give you a body massage to enhance circulation. Alternatively, if a "walking pool" is your treatment of choice, you may find yourself immersed in seawater, wading against a gentle current which is alternately cool then warm.


health & beauty Different kinds of Thalassotherapy This is designed to improve blood circulation in your legs. Or perhaps you've chosen to try an aqua gym, where firm jets of water will target your various muscle groups while you gently work out in a pool with your body supported by the resistance of the water. If you can't decide which form of treatment to take, your chosen thalassotherapy centre can recommend a treatment package for you.

Thalassotherapy can come in many different forms. As well as those mentioned such as;Seaweed, mud or algae wrap, Aqua Gym and Walking pool There are also;Hydromassage: underwater massage jets of water Balneotherapy: water-based therapies that use seawater or thermal spring water to improve your circulation Ionisation: a thalassotherapy where the seawater is ionised with negative ions and is inhaled or sprayed. Used to heal the upper respiratory tract VinothĂŠrapie: a treatment combining thermal spring water and inigo-elements with wine and grape extracts to strength blood vessels and enhance circulation.

YOUR TOURIST GUIDE TO TUNISIA

Tunisia is situated on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa, bordered by Algeria in the west and Libya in the south-east. An abrupt southern turn of its shoreline gives Tunisia two faces on the Mediterranean with a coastline 1,148 kilometres in length. Despite its relatively small size, Tunisia has great geographical and climatic diversity. An extension of the Atlas Mountains, traverses Tunisia in the north to the Cape Bon peninsula. The Sahil is along Tunisia's eastern Mediterranean coast famous for its olive groves and beaches. Inland from the Sahil are the Steppes. Much of the southern region is semi-arid and desert leading into the Sahara.


tourist guide TUNISIA is a beautiful and diverse country in Northern Africa that has a Mediterranean Sea coastline, and is situated at the very centre of Mediterranean Africa. Tunisia lies immediately to the south of Italy and Malta. Libya borders Tunisia to the south-east, whilst Algeria lies to the west. There are many places of interest, cities, towns and villages, all well worth a visit. The information on these pages is a quick guide to just some of those worth a mention, but by no means a comprehensive list of all that Tunisia has to offer. TUNIS is the capital of Tunisia, and is divided into the old city, known as the medina, and the new city (ville nouvelle in French). Although located on the Mediterranean coast, it is spared much of the tourist beaches and resorts, which lay to the north and south. With a population of over 1,500,000, the city still feels small and compact. The must-see attractions are The Souq, which is one of the most authentic and hassle-free in North Africa. Bardo Museum, occupying the 13th century palace of the Ottoman-era ruler and renowned for its extensive collection of Roman mosaics. Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul. Built in 1882, this is the largest surviving building from the colonial era, in the neo-Romanesque style. Zitouna Mosque. The largest mosque in Tunisia and an important landmark, dating from the 8th century, although the distinctive square minaret is a later 19th century addition.

The ruins of CARTHAGE, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a former city of the Pheonician and Punic periods dating from the 6th Century BC, and are situated 12 km north of Tunis. This was the base of a powerful empire spanning the entire south Mediterranean and home to a population of the order of half a million people. Its most famous general was Hannibal who famously crossed the Alps to battle the Romans. In 146BC the city finally fell to Rome and its destruction ordered by the Senate. The site was later redeveloped by the Romans and Carthage became the capital of the province of Africa.

framed More Familiar Than You Would Imagine

Tunisia is a very popular tourist destination with Europeans, who flock to enjoy the Mediterranean beaches, historical ruins and desert oases. Although in many ways an exotic and mysterious country, the interesting landscapes are actually very familiar, but you may not realise it. This is because numerous popular movies have been filmed here. George Lucas has filmed several of his Star Wars movies in the deserts of Tunisia and is known to have loved the place, returning time after time for location sets. The planet Tatooine, Luke Skywalker's home, is in fact named after a real town in Tunisia, Tatouine, although much of the desert scenes were filmed in the Matmata area. Due to it's extraordinary surroundings, Matmata was also the location for disco scene in the first Star Wars film (now, of course Episode IV). In this area there are still some fascinating troglodyte dwellings, which are effectively vertical caves dug by man into soft sandstone, usually formed as a circle, with doors and rooms dug in from the vertical walls.

One of these was actually used as Luke Skywalker's home for the first Star Wars movie, and over again for the Attack of the Clones, and still remains actually as a hotel/tourist attraction. It may even be possible to visit other locations used in the Star Wars movies such as Mos Espa, where parts of The Phantom Menace were set. Other movies filmed either wholly or part in Tunisia which you may have seen include The English Patient, Monty Python's Life of Brian, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Lifestyle Tunisia
