Visitors can rent yachts and sailboats and enjoy the views of Sousse from the sea or take sailing lessons for beginners.
- Diving in Sousse: Also in Port El Kantaoui there are several diving spots where tourists can rent diving equipment, go out at sea in groups of divers or take lessons for beginners in the Tunisian Mediterranean Sea.
- Playing golf north of Sousse: A 5-minute drive will get you from the centre of Sousse to a beach resort that boasts two large, fully-equipped golf courses with circuits for golfers of varying skill levels, from beginners to pros.
- Sea fishing in Tunisia: Recreational fishing in the gulf of Hammamet, near Sousse, is a ritual rather than a sport. The area has a diverse marine fauna, and the calm and clean waters invite to spend a quiet day fishing at sea.

- Riding a horse in Monastir: Horse racing fans have the chance to visit the racecourse in Monastir. Horseback tours or horseback riding can be booked at the racecourse. In addition, on the coastline and around Sousse there are many horse riding centres.
