Overview of Hammamet

Tunisia is a small North African country that makes a big impression. Holidays to Tunisia are all about lounging on sun-drenched beaches, exploring the desert and visiting historic towns. One of the most popular destinations is Hammamet, Tunisia’s first tourist resort. It promises a pristine golden-sand beach, ample watersports and a lively nightlife. There are even authentic souks where you can pick up unusual souvenirs. Stay in nearby TUI MAGIC LIFE Africana, and your holiday will be complete.

Things to do in Hammamet

Yasmine Hammamet boasts a long stretch of golden sand, lined with loungers and hotel bars. At one end is a glitzy marina, where you can tuck into authentic Tunisian food. Order spicy merguez sausages, tangy tagines and lalabi, a chickpea and garlic soup, as you enjoy spectacular views. Just 15-minutes’ walk from TUI MAGIC LIFE Africana is Carthage Land, a theme park based on an ancient city. It boasts a mini-zoo, spinning teacups and a white-knuckle log-flume ride in its spacious grounds. You can’t go wrong with Hammamet’s endless sandy beaches, clear skies and delicious cuisine.

Resort Summary

They say Hammamet is where tourism in Tunisia was born, and as far as destinations in the country go, they don’t come much more classically suave. Pristine white buildings boasting wide arches and curved rooftops make for handsome surroundings, and the sun seems all the brighter for their presence.

However, Hammamet is far more than a cultural centre. Although its roots extend back to Spanish exploration and Roman colonisation, Hammamet today is as Tunisian as they come. It’s also covered in plants of all kinds – particularly olive groves, lemon trees and oranges – hence why they nickname this town the Garden Resort.
