SPORTS

1300 km of coastline, wide open spaces, a year-round sunny climate and hotel-clubs well stocked with sporting facilities… welcome to a paradise of active leisure. For beginners or old hands alike, enjoy kitesurf, mountain biking, tennis, golf, scuba diving or horse riding. 


Scuba diving

Legions of fish, strangely shaped sea slugs, colourful sea fans and anemones… The Mediterranean is an extremely rich sea, and the majority of the Tunisian coastline has remained free of pollution. The result: extraordinarily healthy and vibrant marine life. Looking for excitement? Explore Tabarka’s tunnels or the underwater caves of Kelibia. In addition, Tunisia is surrounded by countless wrecks dating back to the Second World War; fascinating sites and sanctuaries for the wildlife. 

Diving has been practiced and supervised in Tunisia for decades. All along the coast, diving clubs offer diving initiation, outings and PADI, SSI or CMAS qualifications.

Wind and kitesurf
All the major seaside resorts offer windsurfing and catamaran sailing. Certain nautical centres and hotel-clubs also offer beginner’s courses or internationally recognised training courses. 
But did you know that you can also practice kitesurfing? Popular on the island of Djerba, it is practiced on the bodies of water and shallow lagoons that dot the coastline. 
On the southern beaches such as those in Djerba, the mild climate and the relatively constant winds are perfect for beginners. Alternatively, the northern beaches tend to attract those looking for athletic challenges. 
Equestrian activities
Tunisia is home to remarkable local species such as the bearded horse, the Arabe-Barbe or the Mogod Pony. From the desert to the forests of the North-West, the horse is ubiquitous. It can be admired in the Fantasias of the South just as in the horse races in the hippodrome of Tunis. 
If you already know how to ride a horse, many establishments will offer you equestrian outings in the fresh air on deserted beaches, through pine forests or along mountain paths. For enthusiasts, a select few highly regarded equestrian centres provide riding lessons and offer real treks in magnificent wild settings. 

Suggestions

The Centre Hippique Mahdia equestrian centre is renowned for its horse sports and equestrian tourism offerings. It also offers activities for autistic children. 
The Ranch of the Le Sultan Hotel in Hammamet offers lessons and horse rides. 
Hippoclub equestrian centre in Sidi Thabet.
Football

A country passionate about football, Tunisia has a few achievements to be proud of: first African team to win a World Cup finals phase match (1978), it has qualified many times for the World Cup and won the Africa Cup in 2004.

For training for both amateur and professional football teams, three hotels offer completely equipped sporting complexes: La Cigale Tabarka, El Mouradi Hammam Bourguiba and El Mouradi Port El Kantaoui

TennisWith its year-round sunny and temperate climate, Tunisia is a dream location to work on your forehand in a holiday atmosphere. Many hotels have tennis courts available. Worth mentioning: the Seabel Alhambra Beach Golf & Spa Port El Kantaoui has 14 hard courts, 3 clay courts and regularly organises tournaments. 
Hunting and fishing
With its untouched open spaces and its abundant game, Tunisia is a very attractive destination for hunters. As tourist hunting is highly regulated, non-resident hunters generally concentrate on certain highly abundant species such as wild boar and thrush. Wild boar, hardy and aggressive, are widespread from the north to the south of the country, and even in the oasis regions. An opportunity for unforgettable hunting trips in fabulous natural landscapes. 
Hunting is passed on from father to son in certain Tunisian families, you will be accompanied by highly professional Tunisian hunting guides. 
A decree from the Minister of Agriculture dedicated to tourist hunting is published every year (see it at legislation.tn). 
Several forms of recreational fishing are also practiced in Tunisia, such as spearfishing and fishing in the numerous reservoir lakes where fish are often abundant.  

Races and trail runs

Are you a fan of marathon, half marathon or trail runs? Races are organized 
throughout the year across Tunisia in impressive settings: desert and chotts, mountain, seaside, or with great archaeological sites in the background.
The events often include races for all levels, even sometimes for teens and kids.
