As an extension of the historic city of Monastir, Skanes is ideally placed to enjoy the best of Tunisia’s modern and traditional influences. The beautiful coastline and golden sands are ideal for beach lovers, but you don’t have to venture far to appreciate something that isn’t beach-related. Whatever you decide to do, there’s glorious year-round sunshine up for grabs – what more do you need?

Great Things to Do

Skanes boasts an enviable position on Tunisia’s east coast, within easy reach of the Moorish charm of Monastir and exhilarating Saharan adventures.

Sail Away on a Felucca

Take in the gorgeous Skanes coastline as you drift away from shore on the shining decks of a felucca sailboat. Soak up the sun’s rays as you sail along the horizon and look back to the shore, trying to spot your hotel from the sea. Take a dip in the ocean to cool off a little, before heading back to dryland.

Hone your Talent for Watersports

Most attractions are in nearby Monastir, but in Skanes, watersports are commonplace. In fact, you may not need to venture far from your hotel’s little piece of beach to enjoy the activities on offer, including jetskiing and pedalos. If you’d prefer to enjoy something a little more thrilling, try paragliding!

Hop On the Tourist Train

As a suburb of Monastir, Skanes is within touching distance of the main sights, and a tourist train ensures that you can see the ancient city with ease. The kids will love the journey on this cute road train, and the scenery along the way is very pretty. Once there, you can take advantage of all that Monastir has to offer.

Pick up some Souvenirs

Whether you choose to wander through the Skanes medina, or you prefer to peruse the shops in the modern shopping centre, you don’t have to venture away from Skanes to pick up some treats and souvenirs for your loved ones back home. There’s a variety of traditional goodies to choose from too, including pottery.

Getting Around

Skanes itself is very compact, and you’re likely to only need your feet to explore it. However, if youwant to venture a little further, to Monastir or elsewhere, taxis, buses and louages are widely available and inexpensive. There is also a road train service that can connect you to nearby resort towns including Sousse and Monastir. Car hire is easy to arrange, if you want to explore at your own pace.

By Bus

The bus service that connects Skanes with the local area is excellent and inexpensive. Buses operate regularly, so you shouldn’t have to wait long to hop on one. Louages are also available.

By Car

If you want to be able to explore the rest of Tunisia with flexibility and independence, car hire is agreat option. Roads are in good condition, and driving is relatively safe. Drive on the right hand side.
