Weather Averages for Tunis in June
Averages for Tunis in June
June becomes exceedingly warm and dry in Tunis. The tourist season is in full swing so this may not be a good time of year to visit if you dislike intense heat and large crowds.
This means you should pack plenty of light clothing. T-shirts and shorts for the daytime and breathable materials such as cotton and linen for evening wear.
Of course the main draw of Tunis at this time of year is the miles of golden, sandy beaches around the bay. The water is very warm so you can cool off with a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean – and if you’re feeling brave, why not try some water sports such as waterskiing or scuba diving?
If you are intending to spend a lot of time at the beach then it is essential you take precautions to avoid sunburn and sunstroke.
Always wear sunscreen with a high SPF and seek shelter during the hottest part of the day.
Away from the beach there are plenty of historical sites to see around the city.
The oldest part of the city is the Medina, which grew up around the Zoutana Mosque from the year 698. Here you will find many ancient buildings in a variety of architectural styles.
The Hotel Carlton is situated only 500m from the Medina and offers quality accommodation at affordable prices. In keeping with the interesting architecture in the area, this hotel is located in an art deco building dating from 1926.
Also worth a visit are the well preserved remains of the ancient city of Carthage. Dating back roughly 3000 years, this city was destroyed and rebuilt numerous times under the Greek, Roman and Islamic states.
And nature lovers can head to the nearby Boukornine National Park for hiking, cycling or a jeep safari.
