About Hammamet  

Hammamet is a small beach side town located on the northern peninsula of Cape Bon. It sits on the edge of the Gulf of Hammamet and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. Hammamet is best known for its wide sandy beaches and water sports, and the city was actually the first tourist attraction in Tunisia.

Hammamet is less than one hour from the capital Tunis and its Carthage International Airport and has become a favored touristic destination. The place has “everything”; other than its stunning beach and its good climate, it has a beautiful and charming Medina, hotels of all classes, good restaurants and many options for daytrips.

Proud of its heritage, museums and monuments are accessible and opened with pleasure to its guests and the Medina with its colorful shops overflowing with silver jewelry, pure wool blankets, copper and carpets bustle with activity under the towering walls of the Ribat. The medieval medina is tiny, but well kept, and it is apparent from the streets and the facades of the houses, that it is not the lower classes living here. The walls of the houses are white, sometimes with a touch of blue. Doors are often highly decorated, windows have intricate ironworks in pastel blue. Right in the middle, there is a mosque, small and nice. One corner is made up of an old kasbah, the opposite corner overlooks the graveyard and the sea.

All along the beach of Hammamet, modern hotels have been, and are still being built. They all come in the same fashion: Hotel with bar, restaurant and swimming pool. Hammamet is also a good base to day trips to other fascinating Tunisian destinations, such as the capital Tunis, the ruins of Carthage, kairawan, and exciting desert safaris to Sahara.

Hotels and Alternatives

Since Hammamet is a major tourist destination, there are many hotels. In high season (June-early September) prices go up, but fortunately there are seldom problems finding a hotel room. While high season prices are at least 30-40% above average for Tunisia at the same season, prices are very comfortable in the pleasant months right before and after it. Hammamet has all classes of hotels, even if there aren’t too many cheapies.

Restaurants and Alternatives

Hammamet has a wide variety of restaurants, and many of them offer good food, charm, good service and reasonable prices at the same time. There are also many options along the main tourist streets for budget travelers, too. Pizzas appear to be the best the most popular option there.

Money Exchange

All options, all over. ATMs, cash withdrawals in banks, currency change in banks and at hotels. Many shops, restaurants and hotels accept major credit cards.


Public transportation in Hammamet is handled by minibuses, which are very affordable. Taxis are also widely available and they are quite cheap as well. In Hammamet almost everything can be accessed by walking. Car rental in Hammamet is also available if you’d like to visit other destinations in Tunisia, such as Carthage, Kairawan, Sousse or Tunis.
