"A Quiet Retreat" Al Hammamat by bodafon

Al Hammamat Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 3 photos

I found Tunisia to be an unexpected gem in some respects and unlike anything I had envisaged the place to be. Quiet and relaxing, with some stunning scenery. The hotels were clean, comfortable and the staff friendly.

Hammamat town I found to be a mixture of the old and new, the castle and a small souk the places to visit.
Beaches are amongst the best on the Med, clean and the water crystal clear.

Restaurants were plentiful; the prices reasonable but beware of a starter called the “Brek” and the fiery sauce called Harissa

    Good tips. Yes, haggling in the souks is something you have to get accustomed to in North Africa.

    Hi Bob, thanks for visiting my Libya page. I enjoy my visits to the northern African countries. I am just back from Morocco, also with lots of colourful pottery at the markets.
