Welcome to Hammamet

Hammamet is small-scale and suitably relaxed. The town's centre is packed with restaurants and shops, overlooked by its towering fort and medina walls.

The metamorphosis from quiet fishing village began in the 1920s with the arrival of Romanian millionaire George Sebastian and the European fast set. Today, Hammamet is a full-blown resort town, and hundreds of hotels dot the coast for almost 20km, from the walled-off bastions of Hammamet Nord to the wide, five-star-resort-lined boulevards of Yasmine Hammamet. Where the hotels stop, abruptly, the beach is once again wild and untouched.
