Averages for Sousse in April
April is perhaps the first month where visitors to Sousse, Tunisia can start to think about removing their jacket and enjoy some warmth, with the average high temperature reaching 20°C. The average low increases to 12°C, and the sea temperature also increases by one degree to 16°C. However, April is also a wet month and sees a 10mm increase from March, with 32mm over six days. This is compounded by extra sunshine though, with eight hours per day. April is one of the more humid months of the year at 71%.
With the weather picking up but not quite warm enough to lie on the beach for endless hours, April is a good month to try your hand at some of the activities on offer in Sousse. Port El Kantaoui has a 36-hole golf course, and there is also the option of camel riding while in Tunisia. Alternatively you could explore the Dar Essid, which shows a historical glimpse into the living quarters of upper-class people in Tunisia. The Dar Essid is a house that now operates as a museum and showcases decorations in a mixture of styles. In the past, the house was home to a 19th century official, his two wives, and their families. One of the most interesting items on show is the Roman oil lamp, which stands on the table beside the first wife’s bed. Legend has it that the lamp was lit every time the couple had sex, and the intimacy would last as long as the lamp was burning, so that the husband could spend equal time with each of his wives. Visitors can also go to the top of the house, which is now a café, and enjoy some of the splendid views of Sousse.
For a comfortable but affordable trip in April, consider Chams El Hana. Located in the centre of town, the hotel provides guests with an outpoor pool and sauna, as well as a fitness centre, beauty salon and tennis courts.
