All flights from United Kingdom to Hammamet/Enfidha
If you want to perfectly position yourself for easy access to the top holiday spots in Tunisia, flights to Enfidha with Thomas Cook Airlines will get you there. Landing right by the stunning Gulf of Hammamet, an amazing stretch of sands boasting some of the best holiday resorts in the country, you'll be able to start your holiday from the minute your plane hits the runway.
Enfidha sits slap bang in the middle of Sousse and Hammamet, which are two of the prime holiday destinations in Tunisia, boasting plenty to keep you busy both on and off the beaches.
More about Hammamet/Enfidha
Both Sousse and Hammamet are dream examples of old meets new, where the beautiful beaches offer all the fun of a holiday hotspot, including water sports galore. But the town centres are crammed with historical landmarks and traditional vibes. In Sousse, the ancient medina boasting the Great Mosque of Sousse, the historic Kasbah and the hillside Ribat religious site makes it easy to image centuries past.
A little way up the coast in Hammamet you have a similar story - the walled medina and the markets of the old town tell tales of older times, while the 3km sandy stretch offers ample opportunity to relax and enjoy the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The nightlife in both Sousse and Hammamet is lively enough, but expect a traditional touch - think Arabic music, belly dancing displays and beachfront cafés rather than fishbowl cocktails and nightclubs. For a true taste of this beautiful country, book your flights to Enfidha with Thomascook Airlines and head for the Middle East.
Top 5 things to do in Enfidha
Sousse’s Ancient Medina
Visit the famous historical sites of Sousse’s ancient medina. The Great Mosque of Sousse, the historic and chaotic Kasbah and the hillside Ribat religious site can all be visited in one day and make for a fascinating cultural excursion.
If you’ve spent enough time on the beaches around Enfidha, take a day trip to Nabeul where the golden sands stretch for miles and shady coconut palm umbrellas dot the horizon. Try paragliding, jet-skiing or banana boating if you’re up for something a little more active than sunbathing.
Camel and horse-riding
No trip to Tunisia is complete without a camel ride or some horse-riding. Trek across the deserts under the hot African sun just like the locals have done for hundreds of years. Perfect for kids and grown-ups alike, just remember to bring a hat and some sunscreen!
Those who want to escape the sunshine for an hour or two could head to one of Sousse's museums - the Archaeological Museum is famous for its mosaics and the time-warp house Museum Dar Essid comes highly recommended by fellow travellers.
