Weather in Tunisia in June

Is June a good time to visit Tunisia?

Summer has arrived in Tunisia in June – the perfect month to visit the northern beach resorts and enjoy the Mediterranean sea before the package tour crowds arrive for the peak season (July and August). The weather is hot, dry and sunny, and the nights mild and pleasant, all with relatively low humidity. The desert regions to the south are becoming to hot to handle for tourists at this time of year, but an intrepid few who can stand the searing daytime heat will be able to arrange excursion during June in Tunisia.

Climate in Tunisia in June

The average maximum temperature in the north of Tunisia in June is 29°C (84.2°F), and it seldom drops below around 18°C (64.4°F) during balmy, star-studded nights. The golden sandy beaches beckon with sea temperatures of around 20°C (68°F) – bracing, to be sure, but the resort pool will no doubt be much warmer. The rainfall has decreased markedly since the preceding winter months (this is a winter rainfall area), but there could still be the odd shower, despite the average for the month being a low 11mm with statistically the chance for two days of rain.


What’s on in Tunisia in June

Local music and drama steals the stage in Tunisia in June, with the Festival of Mahlouf (celebrating classical Tunisian music) taking place in Testour; a Djerban folk festival in Houmt Souk; and the Dougga Festival featuring classical plays performed among the Roman ruins.


What to pack for a holiday in Tunisia in June

It’s summertime, and the living is easy, so bring out your best beachwear, invest in some top notch sun protection, and come to soak up the sun in Tunisia. For exploring outside your resort some loose, comfortable and cool clothing with sandals is recommended. Those who feel the cold may want to make use of a wrap or cardigan in the evening.
