Weather in Tunisia in April

Is April a good time to visit Tunisia?

The sea in Tunisia is rather chilly in April, but with spring having sprung on the Mediterranean coast of this north African county, the weather is warm enough for a “dipping of the toe” and the temperature is rising gradually, heading for summer highs. With the winter rainfall diminishing, there is a sure chance of catching a tan in Tunisia in April, with close on eight hours of sunshine on average a day during this pleasant month.


Climate in Tunisia in April

Statistically, climate data for Tunisia in April threatens seven wet days out of the month, with an average rainfall of 42mm. In the great scheme of things however this is minimal, and you can expect close on eight hours of sunshine per day on a Tunisia holiday in April. Yes, there may well be some April showers in Tunisia’s beach resorts, but these will be short and sweet, the weather staying mainly fine and mild, with temperatures averaging 20°C (68°F) during the day, dropping somewhat at night. Bear in mind that average temperatures are just that ... and take into account the low night levels as well, thus most days may well be much warmer. Humidity levels in the Tunisian resorts are relatively high during March at 84% on average, which also adds to the overall warm ambience.
