This is well worth a visit for your bargains. Explore the medina for local spices, handicrafts and textiles. The sights and smells will truly inspire you. Experience one of the local cafes and take time to look at the Port and near by beach front. Just be aware that Pick Pockets opperate in this area.

Neighbourhoods

This is a quaint little village by the sea. 5 minutes by taxi, it is worth exploring the small handcrafters shops, beautiful sea views and getting a taste of local life.

Relaxing

This is one of my favourites! It's little known locally that you can use these facilities for free and it is hardly used by locals or tourists. There is a restaurant on site, a few play areas for the children and a brilliant pool. *TIP visit on a weekday and pretty much get the use of the pool to yourself! https://www.facebook.com/Ecovillage.WildLuxury/

This is the best place to access the local gym and Spa. The facilities are very close to the appartment, about a 3 minute walk. The service is very high quality. It is a must to have a massage here, the hammam is brilliant and there is a sauna, many salt water based therapies and beauty services. The Gym is very well equipped too. Just go to the entrance gate and ask for the way to the spa. *TIP - the massage is a must!!!

This is a great local pool to use. Suitable for Tourists only as they are reluctant to let locals in. Fantastic facilities, entertainment from the hotel animation team, so the kids are kept busy. It is free to use the facilities and you can use the bar and restaurant on payment to the waiters. Hire a lounger mat for 1DT per day per lounger. One of my favourites. *TIP You can also go along for the evening entertainment! http://www.golf-residence-port-el-kantaoui.vivehotels.com/
