In Tunisia’s north-east corner, the gorgeous city of Hammamet deserves to be near the top of any holiday bucket list.
Located not far from the capital Tunis, Hammamet is the perfect example of the stunning white sands and crystal-clear waters Tunisia has to offer. It’s also ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, with a whole underwater world to discover.

As spectacular as the coast is, Hammamet’s medina, with its whitewashed walls and maze of market stalls, is the ideal place to start uncovering the city’s delights. Sharpen up your haggling skills, engage with the locals and pick yourself up some handmade craft or delicious produce and you’ll soon be immersed in Tunisian culture.
The 13th century Kasbah is another spot for culture vultures to explore, along with the Musee des Religions and, just south of central Hammamet, the ancient Roman archaeological site in Pupput.
Keen golfers can unleash their inner Tiger Woods at the highly-regarded Citrus Golf Course and for some more family-friendly time, Carthage Land theme park is a must during family holidays in Hammamet, along with Aquapark Flipper, Funwater Hammamet and Hammamet Pirate Ship for family entertainment.
Hammamet Beach is perfect whether you’re looking for a quiet corner to relax with a good book, cocktail in hand and catch some rays, or whether you’re after more active pursuits like partaking in a friendly game of beach volleyball, or heading out on a jet-ski or in a canoe.
There’s plenty to explore beneath the waves too and Yasmine Dive Centre provides excellent opportunities to delve into Hammamet’s underwater secrets, while back on dry land, Yasmine Marina boasts a number of bars and restaurants in which to relax after a hard day of exploration.
