Desert Adventure

When in Monastir, you should not miss out on experiencing the desert at its best. The easiest way is to book a tour with a local agency and learn more about the arid area in Tunisia.

Do & See

You will find a well preserved old fortress, the Ribat, located right on the waterfront and restored many times. Home to a Museum of Islamic Art and Artefacts, this is the main historical attraction of Monastir, along with the impressive golden-domed Bourguiba Mosque. The combination of the Ribat’s ancient atmosphere fused with a modern resort complex makes Monastir a very popular destination among travellers looking for a beach holiday with an accent on tradition.
