Gammarth is a sun-drenched beach resort that stretches for almost 20 kilometres along the coast of Tunisia.

With activities like golf, sailing and scuba diving on offer, there’s plenty to keep you entertained on your Gammarth getaway.
Things to do in Gammarth
Fringed by golden sand and dotted with thatched umbrellas, Gammarth Beach is a paradise for sunseekers. Bask on the sand, cool off in the Mediterranean Sea and visit one of the nearby beach bars for a refreshing glass of iced mint tea. Sunset camel rides along the beach offer a great photo opportunity.
Most of the action is centred around the Zone Touristique, a lively district filled with seafood restaurants, souvenir shops and nightclubs. Chef-driven restaurants can be found at the upmarket hotels strung along the coast. Local specialities such as spiced lamb tagine and spiced couscous will tantalise your palate.
Luxury hotels dot the beach and treat you to sparkling pools and palm-filled grounds. Sip cocktails by the pool and indulge in a massage at the day spa. You’ll also find a great selection of mid-range hotels with a laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere.
Golfers can tee off on a spectacular 18-hole course set around a mirror-like salt lake. Rolling fairways, water obstacles and strategic bunkers will test your skills with a nine iron. After a round of golf, enjoy refreshments at the stylish clubhouse overlooking the green.
