Considered to be Tunisia’s answer to St Tropez, Hammamet offers fantastic package holidays for anyone in search of a piece of North African sunshine. The main focus for the resort is its glorious beaches, but don’t worry if you’d prefer to do something other than lazing all day on the sand with the occasional paddle in the crystal clear waters - Hammamet has plenty of other tricks tucked up its kaftan sleeves.

Great Things to Do

Despite morphing into a touristy hotspot over the last few decades, Hammamet has also kept a strong grasp of its traditional Moorish charm, for best of both worlds holidays

Wander the Maze-like Medina

Hammamet’s medieval medina is a wonderful tribute to bygone years, and an afternoon (or more) walking its labyrinthine streets, haggling for goodies at the souks and stopping for a Hammam massage or a bite to eat, is an absolute must. It’s also home to the oldest Mosque in North Africa anda pretty impressive Kasbah.

Have Fun in Carthageland

Just a few metres away from the sea, in Yasmine Hammamet, you’ll find Carthageland, which offers a range of fun-filled activities to keep all ages busy. Walk among the grand elephant statues at the front gate, before enjoying the water rides, amusements and monkeys. It’s a perfect place to pass a sunny day with the kids

Enjoy the Watersports

The beautifully calm waters that Hammamet overlooks provide an ideal place for some thrilling watersports, with plenty of providers in the resort offering fun-filled experiences for reasonable prices. Hop on a jet-ski, or strap some water-skis to your feet and go for it – you never know, it may be a hidden talent!

Tee Off at Golf Citrus

Less than 15 minutes away is a top class golf course with a selection of courses adding up to a whopping 45 holes on which you can practise your swing. Surrounded by olive trees and forests, the courses are suitable for all abilities, so whether you are used to the birdies, or happy to accept thebogeys, this complex is amazing.

Getting Around

The best way of seeing the main sights in Hammamet is by foot, but if you don’t fancy walking, or wish to avoid the midday sun, taxis are also available - just make sure the meter is reset or agree on a fare before you hop in. Cheap buses and louages (minivans) offer a great way of getting around, especially if you’re venturing out of the resort or you want to experience a true example of local travel.

By Bus

Buses are a popular option in Hammamet, and the main bus station is located next to the Tourist Office, making itinerary planning easy. Many of the buses are old, but they do the job and are very cheap.

By Car

Rental cars are available from the airport and within Hammamet. Local agencies, such as Camel Car, are cheaper than global firms. Unlike the UK, you drive on the right, so make sure you’re confident.
