Reasons to fly to Hammamet

Hammamet is located to the south of the Cap Bon peninsula in Tunisia. Travellers booking flights to Hammamet will discover that it is considered to be the Tunisian Saint Tropez - with similar weather - and offers a relaxed holiday experience.

Known as the "garden resort", the olive, orange and lemon groves and cypress trees grow are framed by azure-blue skies and dazzling sun.

From the 13th-century Kasbah, there are views of the Medina (the old walled city) and to the white-sand beaches. Restaurants serve Tunisian food with a French flavour and there are plenty of cafes, bars and clubs.

It's a great base from where to explore Tunis, Dougga, Sousse, Port El Kantaoui and Kairouan.

Hammamet insider information

  • Hammamet has some of the best beaches in Tunisia and became a popular destination for aristocrats and artists in the 1920s. A Romanian millionaire built a home here and invited Paul Klee and Andre Gide among others. Winston Churchill wrote part of his memoirs in Hammamet.
  • Wander round the medina in the late afternoon, when everyone is waking from the siesta and heading for coffee, mint tea or the hookahs at the cafes. See a traditional Tunisian house at Dar Hammamet with a collection of costumes.
  • Tunisian doors are often blue, which looks especially attractive against white walls. Use the correct knocker if you are invited in: the one on the left is usually used by the women and the one on the right by the men.
