Hammamet is an idyllic town located on the south eastern coast of Tunisia. The laid-back resort, often referred to as the St. Tropez of Tunisia, boasts a string of golden beaches, exciting watersports, traditional fishing villages, cultural charm and shopping – plus year-round temperatures to match.
The main draws of Hammamet holidays are its stunning beaches, brimming with water activities and fantastic seafront restaurants which sell spectacular fresh seafood with a view. The authentic marina at Port Yasmine Hammamet is a great base for luxurious boat trips and a spot of lunch while you watch the bobbing yachts. A major tourist attraction during Hammamet holidays is the city of Sousse, located 100km from the coast this town is a melting pot of culture with Islamic architecture, a bustling old medina, colourful bazaars and archaeological museums to wander.
If you're in search of souvenirs, visit the old city’s medina and take a stroll around the souks where you'll find a selection of traditional arts and crafts - haggling is welcome too! Despite morphing into a touristy hotspot over the last few decades, holidays to Hammamet have maintained a traditional Moorish charm, which is part and parcel of its popularity. The beaches, the crystal clean waters and the compact colourful town of Hammamet are great for those who like the best of both worlds. The Enfidha–Hammamet International Airport is closest to the resort, about a 40-minute drive.
