Travel Destinations in North Africa
Continental North Africa is not a particularly popular destination largely due to the levels of political unrest in the region.
However there are some exceptions. Sun-seekers traveled to Tunisia in large numbers until a few years ago until there were shootings on the beach.
Egypt also offers many attractions but instability there has reduced tourist numbers. Both countries do remain open-for-business for tourists as does Morocco which is possibly the pick of the crop currently.
However, off shore, this region does posses some perennial favourites including Madeira, the Azores, the Canary Islands and the Pelagie Islands, the latter being an Italian Dependency off the cost of Tunisia which is particularly popular with Italian holiday-makers.
