Hammamet is Tunisia’s oldest tourist destination and is known as the garden resort. The combination of its ancient town and more modern coastal amenities make it an exciting melting-pot of old and new.
Beaches here are first class. These soft sands are never too crowded and there is a selection of watersports on offer.
Further inland, visitors can experience the real Tunisia within the traditional walled medina. Its maze-like mesh of narrow streets is awash with local salesmen peddling their wares. Bargain hunters can pick up souvenirs, including jewellery, pottery, metal goods and fabrics. Sightseers should take in Hammamet’s Arab baths and 15th Century Kasbah.
Holidays in Hammamet appeal to a cosmopolitan mix of tourists, who are catered for in the town’s more modern areas. Its palm-fringed promenade is lined with stylish restaurants and the marina area comes alive at night. Entertainment is based around hotels and in open-air nightclubs.
Visitors will enjoy this all-round resort for its exclusive tourist areas and for its display of traditional life.
