Take a holiday in Hammamet
Once a playground of the rich and famous, today the Tunisian resort of Hammamet is well known for its cheap package holidays. With sweeping, sandy beaches, child-friendly restaurants and a broad spectrum of watersports, excursions and other family activities, holidays to Hammamet are both affordable and fun. We at The Co-operative Travel have all inclusive holidays that ensure families and holidaymakers of all ages have a perfect time.
Hammamet evolved from a tiny fishing village, and the historic town centre is well worth seeing for its 15th century mosque and medina. Many holidaymakers choose to take all inclusive holidays in modern complexes along the seafront, where they can enjoy pools, kids clubs and live, family entertainment as well as private beaches and water sports.
Hammamet holidays for families
The hospitality of the Tunisian people is legendary. Families are always welcome, and restaurants love it when children try out the local dishes, which are generally mild and Mediterranean, rather than spicy. Tunisia is a moderately Muslim country, meaning British visitors can also enjoy a drink – though the mint tea may be more refreshing.
Hammamet has some of the best beaches in Tunisia. Younger children can play in the sand and paddle in the shallows, while older ones can enjoy a variety of water sports including wind-surfing, scuba diving and sailing tuition. There’s a round of international golf courses while others can enjoy spa treatments – or just relax on their own private beach. With 40,000 hotel beds to choose from, cheap package holidays here are the norm, and a lot of these activities are included in the price.

Go out – or staying in?
The 15th century medina is an essential part of the Hammamet experience. In the covered souk you will see everything from belly dancing veils to rugs and silverware. Spices, nuts and live chickens mingle freely, in a scene that hasn’t much changed in 500 years.
Cheap holidays in Hammamet mean more money to explore further afield. Sit back in air-conditioned luxury on an excursion to surreal Matmata, the setting for Luke Skywalker’s home planet in Star Wars. The Chott el Djerid salt flats, near the desert capital of Tozeur, are another place many will recognise from the movies. The ancient ruins of Carthage make a truly inspiring day out, while at El Djem there’s an impressive coliseum where the inspired can become gladiators for a while.
