Hammamet beach is a must see when in the town of Hammamet. Taking a walk along the beach is easy to do from the centre of Hammamet, especially from beside the beautiful Medina you can walk along the coastline adjacent to the houses and beach front hotels. It is lovely to just meander along the beach at your own pace and take in the beautiful Gulf Of Hammamet, watch the fishing boats returning to shore, see horses gallop along the sands, watch camels too walking the along the sands or just enjoy the peace of the day and the sun setting. A beautiful beach though some areas you need to be careful when walking for stray dogs, building debris or litter. This spoils it in parts but the beauty of the coastline that are well kept and tended too make up for those areas that are not. Worth a visit and good photo opportunities. 🌊⛱🏖

On Friday there is a fantastic local market in Nabeul about 20 mins from Hammamet. You can go by organised tour, taxi or train--it is a must.
They have everything here from local pottery and wall tiles, hubble bubble pipes and Bob Marley masks, to fake designer goods, They even have real saffron--beware most of it is fake--especially in powdered form!!. I loved the hot,crunchy sugar coated almonds.
It covers a huge area--so leave plenty of time.
If you speak French--use it!!! French is the second language in Tunisia--if you try to speak it you will get away with blue murder--they will respect you!!
Be prepaired to haggle--they won't be insulted--and--walk away--they will follow you.
Do not take very much money--or credit cards--It gives you much more negociating power if you can show them you don't have any more money!!
I wanted a fake Dior bag--they wanted 69 Dinar for it--I didn't have that much money;. so after 10 mins I offered him all the money I had--18Dinar ( about £8.)--finally he accepted it.
Always be polite--always smile and you will get terrific discounts--whether or not it is ever worth what you pay for it--is another matter!!
Most of all--it is a bit of fun!! and PERFECTLY SAFE. I am a 63 yr old disabled lady --travelling on my own--I was treated with the greatest respect and felt safer than I do in my local Town centre,
Go; have some fum, haggle hard, and get some interesting sovenirs--but remember--you have to gat them home!

Hammamet's beach is very beautiful. We were in the area reserved for guests of Hotel Citronniers, where Harrid (aka Rambo) the lifeguard/entertainer is a friendly character, whose ability to speak fluently in arabic, english, italian and spanish amazes me. From here, the famous Hammamet Madina is a pleasant 30 minute stroll on the beach, you can actually see its big walls from the beach if you look as far out towards the left hand side of the beach. Beach is fairly clean, despite what other posters have said, you might find the odd plastic bottle, pile of horse manure. There are sellers selling things, typically fruit, international newspapers, big cartons of cigarettes, hand made shawls and scarves, if you don't want them then a polite no thank you is enough, they don't go out of their way to hassle you - they are trying to make an honest living. I feel I must emphasis this point as I noticed an English family being very abusive towards these sellers and as a fellow Brit, I was extremely annoyed and embarassed by their chav-like behavior. There is a bar on the beach, where you can buy cold drinks including the local beer, Celtia. I never bought any food, but I noticed pictures of pizza. Probably the typical touristy food, such as burgers, chips, pizza I'd imagine. You can also do water sports, such as parachuting tied to a speedboat, jet skis, banana boats.

Don't go there!! Terrible place. Piles of camel [--] on the beach, aggressive merchants, insulting you if you don't buy. Garbage on the beach and in the water. Never again.

Beach itself didn't look too clean but it was peaceful to sit by the blue waters to look around and relaxing to look at it from above. If they cleaned up this place it would probably be really nice place. What a shame

Visited the centre of Hammamet out of season in February 2015. We have visited Tunisia many times over the last 20 years and the beaches never fail to amaze me. They really are beautiful, clean and easy to swim in. Hammamet Beach does not disappoint.

Finally ventured out from the hotel for a beach walk today only to find a dirty beach that, in all likelihood, is packed to the gills in high season. I also expect that it’s better kept at that time as well but this is shameful and such a blight.

Highlight-met this friendly fellow that escorted me-much to the HORROR of the locals🤣 Muslims are no fans of dogs!

To the hotels in the area-Raddison and Sentido I am talking to you, shell out some money and employ some locals to clean up the trash areas around your hotel-all year. Tourists don’t want to have to look at this on their beach holiday.

The beaches here in Tunisia are beautiful. The sand is golden and the sea is clear. I have been here several times and never found a bad beach
