Hammamet, "City of Spas and Baths" in free translation, lies lazily in the sun on the southeastern shore of Cape Bon.

From its beginnings as a tourist resort, the local administration decided that no building should exceed the height of a tree, thus avoiding the brutal development of tall buildings that would have stolen the typical Mediterranean calm charm. There are no crowded beaches, hectic crowds or noisy clubs, just peace and relaxation.

Local aromas

The difficulty of living in the desert has prompted Tunisians to become creative when it comes to food, so get ready for a very interesting feast.

Especially during Ramadan, Tunisians eat a lot of brik, meaning a baked dough filled with tuna, parsley and egg.

Lamb stew is the oldest food specific to the area, prepared with lamb, tomatoes, red and hot peppers, cooked in a huge bowl buried in the sand. Khobz Mela is a kind of sweet bread baked over an open fire and sand, in a more than complex process.

Tunisian salad is particularly fresh and energizing, containing olives, egg, pepper, tomatoes and lemon, and sometimes tuna and beans. Some Tunisian restaurants also serve alcohol, so feel free to ask the waiter what specialties they recommend. 

Exotic and Mediterranean

The coastal area of ​​Tunisia is the epicenter of fun, because here you can find extremely beautiful beaches, both secluded and quiet, and some with entertainment facilities, but they are usually integrated into luxury resorts.

In Hammamet you will find a lot of clean and quiet beaches, located near hotels.

The truly idyllic, wild and often free beaches are located outside the city and are accessible by car.

In the resort you can laze on the beach and in the water, or you can practice water sports such as snorkeling, diving, wind surfing and jet skiing.

Nearby city you can also find theme parks for the whole family, such as Flipper Aquapark and Carthageland. Sports lovers can play tennis, football and golf here. After dark, the bazaar and the city center come to life, instead of the traditional products on the stalls, making room for local food and drinks.

Local culture trip

The medina (center) of the city is flanked by tall palm trees, in the shade of which there are street traders who sell traditional objects, souvenirs, spices and all kinds of other objects.

Also here you can find quiet cafes where locals and tourists sit and enjoy a hookah, traditional restaurants and the classic souk (bazaar). Kasbah, the old military fortification typical of any Arab city, is not exactly perfectly preserved, but this aspect contributes to the period charm of the place. 

The villa of the eccentric millionaire George Sebastian can be visited today, but unfortunately no one knows much about the life of this character, but only about his investments here and about his contribution to the development and popularization of the city. Discovering a whole new place and culture is very exciting, especially when you have the opportunity to visit a Museum of Religions. It hides a lot of interesting information about Tunisian culture, about the ethnicities and religions present here and about their evolution throughout history.

Moreover, the architecture of the museum and the objects exhibited here are also really fascinating. Hammamet is a small town, very quiet, ideal for summer holidays where you just want to relax in the sun, swim, eat and sleep, but also to discover the local culture.

It is located 65km away from the capital Tunis, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The city center is full of restaurants and shops with all kinds of goods, all set in the shade of the towering walls of old Medina.

The transformation from a small fishing town into a tourist destination began in the ‘20s, with the arrival of a mysterious Romanian millionaire named George Sebastian. Today, Hammamet is a seaside resort in all its glory, with hundreds of hotels stretching 20km of coastline, luxury resorts and idyllic beaches bathed by the clear waves of the Mediterranean.
