Located in north-eastern Algeria, Annaba is at the centre of one of the most beautiful coastal regions in the western Mediterranean. If you love beaches, dramatic mountains and vibrant cafes, you'll love Annaba.
The city's closest airport is Rabah Bitat Airport, just 5.6 miles to the south of the centre of town. A modern international airport, Rabah Bitat links the city to all parts of northern Algeria, neighbouring Tunisia and even some European destinations.
In town, the best way to see the sights is by taxis which are cheap, safe and easy to find.
Annaba is a major tourist hub in Algeria. The city has a splendid mix of tourism and industry with the largest steel complex in Africa located in nearby El Hadjar.
Local attractions include the Church of Saint-Augustine of Hippo, a key site in early Christianity. Le Cours and the Green Main Street are always buzzing with atmosphere as well. You can also easily get out of Annaba to beautiful beaches like Ain Achir or Djenane el Bey, which are just a short drive away. The beautiful beaches of this amazing coastal city draw tourists from European countries such as France and Italy.
For nightlife junkies, check the Green Main Street (also called Cours de la Revolution). The architecture and imposing sight of the Basilica of St. Augustine will leave any sightseer with an open jaw.
Other attractions include the Mosque of Sidi Bou Merouane and the Stade 19 Mai 1956. Annaba still retains a very strong French feel alongside the culture of the typical cheery Algerian. It is located very close to the Tunisian border.
Annaba is also ringed by mountains which are ideal for hiking and mountain climbing.
