December weather! Good time to go to Tunisia?

I have been looking at Gambia and the temperatures look better than Tunisia but the prices are much higher too!

Is the weather reliable around Christmas time? Thanks!

Simple answer is no - best you can hope for is mild sun but not laying on beach weather. December through to early March probably worst weather - Tunisia is not a winter sun destination - for guaranteed sun Gambia is probably nearest destination.

Nanny

We stayed last Nov/Dec for 28 days

(weather at the start of April this year was apparently colder and wetter !!)

Rained a couple of times during our stay, chilly at night of course

Overall.. we sunbathed most mornings and got a good tan!!

So you never know !!

Another destination would be Egypt- we were there last December-hot every day, windy at times & cool nights. Can highly recommend Club Magic Life near Sharm.

We go to Tunisia in June, looked way too chilly over the winter for us!!

Well we have recently returned from Hammamet and we were very fortunate with the weather.One cloudy windy day out of seven.Remainder sunny every day and warm,around 18c most of the day, certainly warm enought to sit outside and walk the beach etc.,evenings chilly but certainly not cold,long sleeved jumpers etc or jacket for evenings if out and about.

Been twice before in early January and have had mixed bags of decent weather and some rain and storms.They don't seem to last too often and soon clear away.

Having said that,as stated above it is a bit pot luck in Dec and Jan.
