Description: The Political Map of Algeria showing names of capital cities, towns, states, provinces and boundaries of neighbouring countries.
Algeria looks out onto the Mediterranean Coast from North Africa, bordered by Libya, Tunisia, Mali, Mauritania and Morocco and is Africa's second largest city with more than 1,200 km of coastline. The striking Sahara desert covers more than four-fifths of Algeria and the best way to enter the desert is via the south, crossing the El Kautara Gorges, which offer breathtaking views.
Algeria is connected by rail, road and air, it is
therefore easy to catch flights from the capital, Algiers to other
cities such as Ghardia, Djanet and Tamanrasset, as well as to smaller
towns. Within easy reach of Algiers are some lovely beach resorts
namely Zeralda, while to the east lies the Turquoise Coast with long
beaches and rocky inlets. There is also an excellent marina on the Sidi
Fredj penisula with plenty of sports facilities and amenities.
Tamanrasset is a popular picturesque resort both in winter and in summer, situated in the heart of the the Hoggar Mountains. From here most of the trekking tours start off into the surrounding mountains and desert, it is visited regularly by the camel caravans and blue-robed Touaregs. The holy town of Beni-Isguen, not far from Ghardaia, is its permanent auction market, while the Tassili Nâ€™Ajjer or better known as the â€˜Plateau of Chasmsâ€™ is another popular site, an expanse of volcanic and massive gorges with rivers running through, featuring neolithic-aged rock paintings.
Summers in Algeria can be very hot, especially in the south with frequent sandstorms. In the north there is a lot of humidity due to the sea breezes. Winters are mild in the North and the oasis in the South offer perfect weather conditions, although the temperature of the desert varies considerably by day and night.
