Port El Kantaoui Golf Course

Aug 17, 2007
The resort is just a forty five minute transfer from Monastir Airport and two hours from Tunis. Port El Kantaoui, situated just north of Sousse.

Tunisias first purpose built tourist town has now established itself as the countries most popular holiday resort. With its own beautifully appointed 300 yacht international marina, Port El Kantaoui has just about everything one would expect for a family holiday fine beach, shops, bars, cafes and restaurants and just enough evening entertainment to keep the tourist visitor happy.

From April to November you can enjoy water sports on the beach including sailing, windsurfing, Jet Ski and water skiing. From the marina you can take sea trips in glass bottomed boats, motorised sailing vessels and catamarans or go scuba diving.

Other activities available within the resort include quad biking, horse riding, tennis and golf and if you fancy a flutter, then just five minutes away is the Casino Carriage, complete with gaming machines, tables, restaurant and show.

The golf course is well worth a visit. Built in 1979 on a 250 acre estate on the side of a hill, Port El Kantaoui golf course dominates the charming resort town. Three mature nine hole courses the Red, Blue and Yellow and a fourth, the White, which has just opened for play, make this a popular venue. All were designed by the same architect, Ronald Fream and given the increased flow of traffic over the past couple of years, the new White course is a very welcome addition.

All in all it is a quiet resort but you can find some quality things to do. It is more suited to couples wanting a quiet time away, but there is a mix of young and old.

All the hotels in the resort are of a good quality and provide at least half board accommodation. There is one or two all inclusive on offer, but by and large the hotels offer quality surroundings and facilities, with most backing onto the superb wide sandy beach.

You can hotel hop as much as you like, sampling the plentiful four and five star hotels in the resort, even if you are based in slightly humbler accommodation. But, there isnt a bad hotel in the resort.

Tunisia itself is a country which some visitors take to their hearts and others think is grimy, grubby, and full of beggars and rip off merchants. But it is a land steeped in history and culture, boasting a few lively resorts, fringed with beautiful sandy beaches. If you have been disappointed before by Tunisia, give it another chance by staying in Port el Kantaoui it is a much more continental style resort, but far from being over commercialised, very classy, clean and comfortable.
