- Discover Port El Kantaoui, Sousse - Tunisia
Port El Kantaoui has one of the best-known marinas in the Mediterranean. A charming pleasure port, with its typical Moorish architecture and hustle and bustle along its quays, it is an attractive touristic pole where good living and relaxation are the predominant features. It is located in the center of the coastal touristic area of Sousse with its numerous hotel and structures dedicated to the entertainment and leisure activities of holidaymakers.
At a distance of 12 km from this marina is the town of Sousse, a famous seaside resort of the Tunisian Sahel. It was founded during the Phoenician era and was known as “Hadrumetum”. It became an important town of the Roman province and then of the Aghlabid dynasty. This port town, today known as the “Pearl of the Sahel” invites you to visit its museums and various historical sites. Its medina and typical alleys display its ancestral architecture, colors and local handicrafts and have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The whole Sahel region, between the littoral and inland, has yielded a large portion of Tunisian heritage treasures throughout its history, with remarkable archeological sites such as Lamta or El Djem and its famous coliseum which hosts an international festival of classical music in summer.
