1If you want beaches with real quality you can find them
on the Maldives
on the Seychelles
on the Bahamas.
The best tropical beach worldwide you can find on Contadora, Islas de las Perlas, Panama, Central America.
I can't recommend Tunisia for beaches. All of them are 3rd class. Better choose another destination for beaches. You will only regret it if you are not completely ignorant.

2I was afraid I'd get an answer like yours. The problem is I want to be somewhere in the more or less easy reach of the Middle East....Doha, to be exact. Any ideas?
Many thanks for your help.

7..... have you thought of Morocco, the beaches south of the High Atlas, Agadir and further south is where you'll find the best and warmest weather in N.Africa. Its an inexpensive destination, with good transport infrastructure, main Airport Casablanca and then take a bus south. Other Airports at Agadir and Marrakech.

8Tunesia is definitely too cold. Europeans go to the Red Sea beaches:
Hurghada, E Quseir, Makadi, El Gouna, Soma Bay, Marsa Alam, Sharm-el-Sheik, Dahab, Nuweiba, Taba, Aqaba.....
BTW: the Seychelles would be of easy reach (at least from Abu Dhabi or Dubai) and there are some affordable hostels too.
Or try Salalah (Oman)

10I'm not sure what a second or third class beach is!
But, I've been to the Dahab in January, and Aqaba in March, both on the Red Sea, and both were still too cold for stereotypical "beach days." They were still both interesting destinations, and well worth it, but not if you were looking to lay out on a towel and read all day. And I'm guessing that's what you're looking for?

11Hi! Thanks all for your input. Much appreciated and very helpful.
As for the last message from hisurfer....yes, I was hoping for a nice, warm, sandy beach to laze about on in warm weather. Maybe some palms for shade. Seems January, February would be the wrong time to attempt this. I am hoping to find a place to hangout in the vicinity of Doha, maybe within a 3hr flight distance. Any ideas appreciated.

13Hi. I live in Tunis and can tell you that January is too cold to lay around on the beach. There are plenty of sandy beaches along the whole coast but not much warm sunshine in January. I'd recommend coming in May, June or October for uncrowded, warm beaches from Tabarka all the way to Djerba. High season prices begin in July.

14Hi hi surfer and tunis runner:
Thanks so much for your thoughtful responses. Much help. Much appreciated. I've heard good things about Oman. I love Goa. Havne't been to Sri Lanka yet. Just might try them out. And in the meantime, if you've been, can you tell me what I should know about Doha and the area....including Oman????
Happy New Year to you! And thanks again for your help.
