Airy and thin clothing is inevitable in summer (from mid-June, July, August to mid-September), primarily to provide sun protection for the body.

In winter (from mid-November, December, January, February, to mid-March) you should never forget the thick sweater and jacket, if you walk about after dark (after about 17-18 o'clock) or early in the morning (before approx. 9-10 o'clock).

For female tourists, who are mainly roaming in tourist areas and large cities, there is little reason to wear "covered" clothing, T-shirts with spaghetti straps, shorts and mini skirt are part of the street and night scene, sometimes even with Tunisian women. Be aware, though, that even in tourist areas, traditional, conservative residential areas are sometimes only a few minutes walk away and should be avoided with such clothes.

Swimsuits like bikini and swimming trunks, which, on the beach, are not a problem, are being on the streets, as it is in most holiday countries, considered inappropriate!

Since 2011, more Islamic tendencies and activities towards the traditional role model of women have been observed, but this is rather and almost exclusively, directed towards tunisian women.

On the other hand, when visiting rural areas and very traditional areas (for example, "Arab" neighborhoods in cities), which are usually not the destination of organized excursions, arms and legs should be covered.

Bathing "topless" for women is forbidden in Tunisia, but is not objected to by some hotels on their premises. On public beaches, however, you can quickly be confronted with annoyed locals or police officers.

"Naturist" (full naked) bathing is strictly prohibited throughout Tunisia!
