Located on the eastern coast of Tunisia, Kerkennah’s gently sloping shore means the sea remains shallow for yards and yards out, making the beaches here among the most child-friendly in the Mediterranean.

You come here to relax, and really not much else, give or take the odd spot of birdwatching. You can cycle around the two main islands (joined by a causeway) and seek out the most isolated beaches; stroll north from the main resort at Sidi Frej to find the remains of an old Ottoman fort, or spend a day on a boat with local fishermen hauling in some denizens of the deep for your supper.

This World Heritage-listed national park is 30km (18 miles) south-west of Bizerte, encompassing Lake  Ichkeul, the last in a chain of shallow freshwater lakes, and adjoining Jebel Ichkeul mountain.

An important bird sanctuary, 200,000 Palaearctic waterfowl such as geese, storks and flamingos migrate here every year to escape the harsh European winters.

Fauna include mongeese, porcupines, jackals, wild boar and water buffalo (descended from just one pair given to Ahmed Bey in 1840!). It contains an information centre, picnic tables, hiking routes and a car park.
