Sfax isn't much of a tourist destination. The hotels and restaurants mainly cater for (Tunisian) business people. The surprising upshot is that Sfax these things tend to be cheaper than in the real touristed areas. Actually, Sfax is probably one of the best places to buy souvenir. The quality is slightly higher, and the goods are genuine.

The main attractions in town include the central sqaure, the harbour and the old city. The old city is bustling with vitality and the streets are filled with shops, without any of the tourist crowds. The harbour is one of the best places to see Tunisia in action.

Sfax is a good base for seeing the Kerkennah islands . They can be reached by Ferry.
