Hammamet is one of the most popular tourist locations in Tunisia and is known for its beautiful beaches. This town used to be a small fishing town, but was later redone to become the very first tourist destination in Tunisia. This city has a reputation for being a relaxing vacation destination, with sandy white beaches, crystal clear blue sea water, and beautiful gardens.
The tourist resort area is called Yasmine Hammamet, named after the jasmine flowers which can be seen and smelled throughout the city.
It is worth seeing the Medina which dates back to around 1500. The Kasbah of Hammamet which dates back to the 12th century is another place you may want to visit. After paying a small entrance fee, you may explore the inside of the Kasbah which includes some ancient cannons, a mausoleum, and other remnants. Once inside the Kasbah, you are able to walk around the upper level which offers an amazing view for photos. Right outside the Kasbah is the city’s most famous cafe called Café Sidi Bouhdid. You will often see postcards of Hammamet with a photo of this cafe. It is worth sitting down for a nice cup of tea or coffee while sitting along the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.
