Sitting on the east coast of Tunisia, Sfax is known for its sun-drenched beaches, bustling souqs and beautifully preserved Medina. The seaside city is a laid-back and authentic destination that also grants access to the alluring Kerkennah Islands.
Central Sfax is anchored by a bustling Medina encircled by ancient city walls. Inside, you’ll find a cluster of beautifully preserved buildings, some housing mini museums like the Regional Museum of Art and Folk Traditions. The Kasbah towers above the Medina and offers sweeping views from the ramparts.
Built in the 1300s, the Bab Diwan gateway marks the eastern entrance to the Medina. It’s fronted by a sunny plaza where you can refuel with tasty street food and freshly-brewed mint tea. Nearby, you’ll find the main souk, where you can stock up on rose water and handmade jewelry.
Love immersing yourself in local culture? Head to the Sfax Archaeological Museum to find some of Tunisia’s most treasured artifacts found in nearby Roman sites. The Musée Dar Jallouli is another highlight, showcasing everything from traditional costumes to Arab calligraphy.
You can cool off with a dip at one of the nearby beaches. The Medina is a stone’s throw from Sfax Beach, fringed by swaying palms and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
Taxis are a convenient way to get around and can take you to most major attractions. You can also jump aboard a louage, which is the Tunisian version of a public mini bus. The best way to explore the winding streets of the Medina is on foot.
