The beaches in Sousse can be compared to those in the Caribbean, because they make an idyllic picture of crystal-clear turquoise blue waters whose low waves gently caress the white sand. Around the beach, visitors can choose from a wide array of bars and restaurants, arts & crafts shops or sports clubs. Most of Sousse’s beaches are very close to the town centre and its fabulous medina.
