"It's only when i started going..." Tunisia Off The Beaten Path Tip by lafillebleue

Tunisia Off The Beaten Path: 144 reviews and 270 photos

It's only when i started going out with my belgio-bosnian boyfriend that i discovered the deserted beaches of La Marsa. Everyone who goes to Tunisia visits the promenade, tastes the ice cream, but very few people get a chance to walk and swim and heu-heum, enjoy the non-touritic beaches.
If you keep going along the beach towards Sidi Bou, that would be east, you eventually get to a dirty beach with rocks, garbage and fishermen. Keep going, and you'll soon have to wet your feet to get passed some rock walls, to finally arrive on a series of small, unfrequented beaches. I guess in the sumerr they are more occupied but when i was there in may it was pretty much just ourselves.
That is one of the only places in the whole country where p.d.a.'s ar acceptable, because there is no one to see you. however, explicit lovemaking isn't recommended. For lonely females i would not recommend going there either because even though rape is punished by years of prison, it's alway best not to be too much of a daredevil when it comes to those things.
