Port El Kantaoui

Port El Kantaoui is a tourist complex 10 kilometres north of Sousse in central Tunisia. It was built in 1979 specifically as a tourist centre, around a large artificial harbor which provides mooring with 340 berths for luxury yachts, hosting sporting activities from water skiing to paragliding, and several golf courses. The 36-hole PGA approved championship course makes Port El Kantaoui a popular destination for golfing.

The architecture, although modern and dazzlingly white, has been modelled on the more traditional buildings in Tunisia, complete with narrow streets and arches. The hotels that line the beachfront extend from Sousse itself along miles of sparkling clean sea to the harbour of Port El Kantaoui and to the north of the harbour.
In style, the port area Port El Kantaoui is designed as a white and blue Tunisian style village with reproduced medina and cobblestone streets. It is popular with package holiday visitors, families and first time visitors. (tunisiaguide)
