Port El Kantaoui

Port El Kantaoui Travel Guide

*In June 2015, a terrorist attack took place at Port El Kantaoui in which a number of foreign tourists were killed. Security has been dramatically increased at resorts in this region and tourists are advised to pay close attention to travel warnings and recommendations from official government sources before travel to Tunisia.*One could be forgiven for imagining that the quaint blue and white holiday village of Port El Kantaoui had been built as a Hollywood set and simply uprooted and placed down on the Tunisian coast, flanked by two long stretches of perfect clean sandy beaches.In fact, this is not far from the truth: El Kantaoui is a chic, purpose-built holiday resort which owes nothing to history, but everything to catering for the up-market tourist seeking leisurely luxury in an enchanting setting.The El Kantaoui Complex is built around a modern marina. It can accommodate more than 300 vessels, most of them moored by millionaires. Its complex of hotels centres on the cobblestone streets of the perfect reproduction of a typical medieval medina, abuzz during the day with souvenir hunters.In the evening, the action switches to the bars and cafes opposite the marina. The entire town has been termed a 'tourist ghetto' and is indeed a delightful and highly successful one, enhanced by its Mediterranean location and Moorish flavour.
