Hammamet, mermaid of the Mediterranean
The Cap Bon peninsula is a group of famous and splendid coastal towns that decorate the Tunisian northern-east coasts.
They all have an ideal location by the sea and possess magnificent beaches or rocky heavenly lagoons. However, the most popular one is the charming town of Hammamet.
It has a festive atmosphere, wonderful blue beaches and natural scenery that make it famous worldwide. Let’s explore it together!
Hammamet, from farmland to a famous seaside resort
Hammamet is one of the fertile Cap Bon lands.
It owns large farms and produces some of the best agricultural and local products of the peninsula, with its neighbouring towns.
Vegetation, prickly pear, lemon and orange trees, flowers, olive trees and jasmine are all issued from its enriched soil to make it an exceptional region.
However, thanks to its strategic location and remarkable monuments, Hammamet has become very touristy.
Attracting visitors from all over the world, it is now home to several hotel chains that have chosen to settle there.
Hundreds of restaurants and night clubs have sprung up over the decades, adding a more glamorous atmosphere to the city and making it one of the most famous seaside resorts in the Mediterranean area.
The unmissable charm of Hammamet
Since the modern history of Tunisia, Hammamet blends glamour to authenticity.
Depending on your mood, you can choose to stroll in the heart of its historical centre or enjoy its new districts. Music and culture festivals, beach parties and bars, resorts and night clubs will all liven up your sunny holidays.
However, the charm of its typical medina and narrow streets remains unique. The majestic fortress, located in the city centre and its numerous museums or archaeological sites, reflect its ancient history. Each stone tells a story allowing you to travel from one era to another.
Diversity of Hammamet meets all your needs as you will find there: fortified castles, souks, fishing and yachting harbours, beautiful traditional doors and colourful boats dispersed on the beach.
Its Mediterranean charm conquers all travellers who come to explore it and enjoy its festivities, gastronomy and crystal water.
