Hammamet, dubbed the St Tropez of Tunisia, has the lot: sunshine, sea and lashings of history. Our guide to the main resort town in Tunisia tells you how best to spend your time here, from dips in the Mediterranean to theme park rides or learning about the fascinating religions in the region.
With clear waters and amazing marine life, Hammamet has the natural assets required for learning how to scuba-dive or snorkel. If you already know how, take the plunge and explore the World War II wreck of the Italian cargo ship Phylabalto, resting on the sea bed 25m (82ft) below the surface. It is home to hundreds of fish, weaving in and out, as well as sea plants dancing in the currents. And if you’re not a diver? Not a problem – there are plenty of boat trips available too.
