    What Mahdia looked like

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the museum on the first floor is a reconstruction plan of how Mahdia would have looked when it was built by the Fatimids. It reminds me of Valletta (the capital of Malta) which was also a fortified peninsula. Note that the walls once went round the whole town and that the Great Mosque had the sea on two sides. There was also a smaller oval shaped harbour behind the main Fatimid Port.

    Favorite thing: The beach at Mahdia was fantastic. The sand was white, the water like a bath, and it was very interesting to see Tunisians on holiday. I never realised you could need so much on a day out at the beach - the Tunisians erected huge tents, and brought with them half the kitchen, and extended families came en masse. The sea was perfect for swimming - not too shallow, and it was windy enough to cause a few waves. It is a very long beach, although there are several large hotels behind it, so it is never deserted.

    Fondest memory: Sipping mint tea in a cafe cafe on the clifftop in Mahdia's old town overlooking the harbour. Some people also dive off the rocks here.
