Holidays to Hammamet, Tunisia

Overview

Hammamet has been a popular resort in Tunisia since the 1920’s when it was popular with writers and artists coming here to soak up its laid back vibe. Not much has changed since then, Hammamet is still popular and the Moorish background and culture that attracted tourists then, still brings people here today. There’s also a 10km golden sand beach here too which is a big benefit for people on holiday here!

Things to Do

When you’re away from the beach, take time to visit Hammamet’s medina, a place where you can get lost in the maze of alleyways and find yourself absorbed in the scents of aromatic spices and among the fun chaos of the souk. If you fancy your chances at haggling, see if you can pick up an authentic Tunisian rug or handmade jewellery for a bargain that you can take back home as a souvenir.

Beaches

There’s a reason why Hammamet is Tunisia’s leading beach resort and that’s because of its beautiful 10km beach. Hammamet Sud has the calm sea which is ideal for families and there are also plenty of sun loungers here if you want to soak up the sun. Water sports are also hugely popular in Hammamet with water sports centres offering lessons in windsurfing and water-skiing as well as jet skiing and catamaran tours.

Food and Drink

Hammamet certainly likes its traditional food and one of the favourites here is Ojja, a Tunisian poached egg dish that is easily found throughout the resort. For something a little more substantial though, head into the New Town where seafood restaurants serve up delicious dinners and then give way to lively bars as the evening changes into the early hours. For something more relaxing though, enjoy a cocktail down by the beach as the sun sets.
