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.
