Hammamet - The Place

Hammamet is a popular resort on the Mediterranean coast of Tunisia with a long white sandy beach. The sand slopes gently into the sea giving safe conditions for children and less confident swimmers. Life guards provide additional security. A variety of water sports are available including sailing, surfing, diving and water skiing. Golfers will be delighted by the quality of the two championship golf courses. There are also tennis courts and riding stables. The old walled town is a maze of narrow streets and alleyways where pavement stalls are filled with local crafts and wares, ideal for gifts and holiday mementos. Popular purchases include leather goods, rugs, carved wooden items and handcrafted jewellery. Remember to haggle for your goods. Ten miles from Hammamet is the town of Nabeul which is the centre of the country’s pottery industry. The Friday market there is worth a visit. For those with an interest in Tunisia’s cultural heritage, the capital Tunis is only sixty kilometres to the north.

Hammamet offers good accommodation with hotels mainly along the seafront. Set within well tended gardens with great pools, they offer a high level of comfort and service. Its restaurants serve a variety of cuisine from traditional fish and meat dishes to international cuisine. Although there are a few lively venues, Hammamet nightlife is fairly relaxed, reflecting the resort’s popularity with families and couples.
A Hammamet holiday can be taken at any time of year in the knowledge that the sun will shine, the sea will be warm and the atmosphere relaxed.

Hammamet Nightlife

Much of Hammamet’s nightlife is fairly low key with hotels providing much of the evening entertainment. There are however several British style pubs and a nightclub where those who wish can dance until the early hours. There are also a couple of casinos where you can enjoy a holiday flutter.

Hammamet Shopping

Tunisia is a souvenir hunter’s paradise and Hammamet is no exception with markets and bazaars. Except for the more formal shops where prices are controlled, bartering is a way of life to be enjoyed by both the seller and the customer. The medina’s souks have local craftsmen and women making and selling their wares. These include pottery and ceramics, carpets, baskets and leather goods to name but a few. The richness of olive wood is shown to good effect in the carved bowls, kitchen utensils and even in jewellery items.

Hammamet Eating

Fish is an important part of the Hammamet diet. Fresh from the boats and simply cooked it delights the palate. Cous cous is the national dish and this is combined with meat, fish or vegetables and spices. A popular fast food is called ‘brik’ which is filo pastry filled with egg and vegetables or meat and then deep fried.

Local wines are good and reasonably priced. Drink only bottled water.
