Whatever time of year you head to experience the beaches of the Tunisian coast, you will find golden sand, waters with an incredible deep blue tone and a sun that shines practically 365 days a year. In the north, a coast of crystal-clear waters whose beaches are surrounded by vegetation and mountains with stunning cliffs lie in wait to amaze you. In contrast, the southern coast’s charm lies in its desert surroundings.
The beaches of Hammamet are the best known in Tunisia, and are situated 60 minutes from the capital. Their sand is white and their waters are warm. These beaches are highly regarded by fans of diving due to the wealth of their seabeds. Sun, dinners in the open air and nightclubs make up a lifestyle in Hammamet, the Saint Tropez of Tunisia. Situated in the fertile peninsula of Cap Bon, this spa town facing the bay is surrounded by green hills and lemon trees. When you are not enjoying the sun and sand, take a look at the local pottery in the markets or take a wander around the medina (the old town), whose walls date back to 1500. The city is enlivened with the festival fever and offers a wide range of music and theater.
Hammamet is an excellent base from which to discover the wonders of its surrounding areas: thousand-year-old cities, picture-postcard villages and stunning remains.
