More than 92,000 tourists visited the region of Mahdia during the first half of 2012, i.e. up 80% over 2011 and down 5% over the same period in 2010.
However, to give a new impetus to tourism in the area of Mahdia, hopes are based primarily on two projects: the first project is that of Ben lyadah. It is subject of advanced negotiations between Tunisia and investment group “Qatari Diar.”
The project, which will cover an area of 140 hectares, will house an integrated tourism resort, in addition to a golf course and a marina.
The second project involves the Guedahbna area whose work will be launched in three months, the Tourism Land Agency (AFT).
