Different regions in Tunisia have their advantages for scuba diving. Tabarka is a place for experienced divers due to its reefs and depth. The local reef covers 500 meters and contains approximately 20 tunnels you can swim through. In Hergla there is exotic underwater fauna. In Mahdia you will see the most impressive archaeological sites. Also, popular regions are Cap Bon and Hammamet.
