At the heart of a lively region - the Cap Bon Peninsula with its lush landscapes and invigorating sea breeze - Hammamet is a fabulous holiday resort renowned for its vast beaches of fine sand and for the beauty of the sparkling turquoise sea.
Experience its charm: the poetic Medina surrounded by golden ramparts, and the gardens bursting with bougainvilleas, hibiscus flowers and jasmine trees.
Nearby is the festive and sophisticated town of Nabeul, a large commercial town and regional capital that has maintained a deeply refined lifestyle. Tunisia's most famous resort is split into two distinct areas, north and south, of the town centre with a host of hotels spread out along the shoreline. For a more relaxing holiday stay in the north, but if you fancy a bit of nightlife close at hand then stay in the south where you'll find a good selection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. You can buy a range of goods in the fixed price shops or haggle for souvenirs in the souks of the Medina.
The Romanian aristocrat Georges Sebastian's former home has become Hammamet's International Cultural Centre where exhibits and events are regularly held. You can take a tour of the house and gardens.
During the balmy summer months enjoy the Arts in the delightful open-air theatre.
The small conventional restaurants which can be found in the centre and many of the side streets serve traditional Tunisian dishes and a great selection of fish and seafood.
If you just fancy a tea or coffee then take a stroll along the seashore in front of the 15th century fort and you'll find some lovely Moorish cafes.
Nabeul, just a short bus or taxi ride away is a seaside town where life is extremely pleasant and where you will find a wonderful selection of traditional arts and crafts. During the weekly market, held on a Friday, the town shines as the capital of this agricultural region. The delectable produce overflows from the colourful stalls charged with citrus fruit, strawberries or fragrant flowers.
Many of the resort hotels have tennis courts and golfers are well-catered for at the 36-hole Citrus Golf Course and the 18-hole Yasmine Golf Course which are a 25 minute drive away from the resort centre.
Sea sports like windsurfing, sailing and kayaks are generally available either as part of your hotel package or along with motorised sports can be purchased at centres along the beach from April to November. Several of the hotels in Hammamet have Thalassotherapy (spa centres) which provide an entire range of treatments, from seawater based treatments to oriental massages.
With nine championship golf courses enjoyed by professionals and amateurs alike, Tunisia is fast becoming a Mecca for golfers.
Affordable green fees, tuition, and equipment hire accompanied by value-for-money and luxurious accommodation makes Tunisia the best value in the Mediterranean for golfing holidays.
