For those wishing to recharge and recuperate on untouched white sands and overlooking sun-glittered blue waters, Mahdia holidays offer the ultimate respite from the hardships of the world, providing you with an undisturbed expedition along Tunisia’s coast. Situated along the eastern coast of Tunisia, and within close proximity to Malta, Mahdia has managed to hold onto its steadfast traditions and enticing historical allure. Entering the medina will open your eyes to a world of lively markets leading onto a thriving town centre, which hosts fishermen tending their nets, locals enjoying the freshly made drinks and a gentle breeze wafting through the narrow alley, having come from the Mediterranean Sea.
When venturing on your holidays to Mahdia, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself on the gloriously sandy beaches that decorate the shoreline. Despite having an array of water sports for those looking to have an active break, the beach is relatively quiet and will suit anyone who wants to indulge in the tranquil setting with a relaxing sunbathe by the sea. If you do find yourself aching to get away from the sunbed to get involved, the Subway Diving School will help you do so with showcasing to you a colourful myriad of marine life while plunging beneath the surface of the big blue. Silk weaving is popular in Mahdia and the medina is usually full of silk weavers creating interesting products to sell – the perfect souvenir to take home from your holidays in Mahdia. Taking a trip through the marketplace will inevitably immerse you within the rich culture of the country; haggling, spicy aromas and a vibrant atmosphere beating like a heart through the winding streets and walkways, while the Great Mosque will give a tangible historical edge to the aura. Head on over to Sousse if you want to explore the chaotic allure of one of the more popular medinas.
