the best of Tunisia

Hotel marhala , Matmata

You don’t often get the chance to sleep in a troglodyte cave. And Hotel Marhala is a very special troglodyte cave hotel. Its rooms, dug out of the ground, are some of the most unusual you’ll find. The beginning of the film Star Wars was filmed in the area: Luke Skywalker looking out at the twin suns as he dreams of space travel. The restaurant serves a delicious Tunisian brik, an egg-stuffed fried turnover.



Restaurant El Mansourah
This restaurant is right on Mansourah beach (2km north of Kelibia). The tables are set into rocks in the sea. It serves delicious seafood, has a good wine selection, amazing views and friendly staff.
