If you want mystery, history and something a little bit different, Algeria should feature on your must-visit list. Nestling between Morocco and Tunisia, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, this beguiling country awash with a colourful blend of cultures.

Its whitewashed capital, Algiers, stretches out along the edge of the Mediterranean. It is a bustling city with a web of narrow streets and a hectic Kasbah for you to explore. Close by are the ancient Roman ruins of Tipaza for those who enjoy a bit of history.

Being a coastal area, Algeria offers fantastic seafood, but much of the cuisine is influenced by a mixture of Berber, Arab, Turkish and French flavours to create a vast array of delicious dishes with a plethora of couscous, chickpea-cakes and tajine of lamb or chicken.

Algeria's most striking and well-known feature is the Sahara. Covering four-fifths of its area, the Sahara is a beautiful yet brutal landscape ripe for exploration by adventurous travellers. But there is more to this country than desert. Algeria's summer temperatures can be high, but the coastal area is cooled by sea breezes making it the perfect Mediterranean cruise holiday getaway.
