Hammamet beach

Experience a taste of the exotic in Tunisia with the beautiful resort of Hammamet only 40km away from Enfidha. If you’re not soaking up the sun at one of the spectacular beaches, you’ll discover plenty of things to see and do – from the 15th century kabash that juts dramatically out into the bay to the old walled medina at the foot of the kabash. Hammamet is the ideal destination for an exotic summer break.
