With a short history of only a few years since the first flights were flown, Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport was originally planned as a second hub for Tunisair, but is currently only used by European airlines bringing travellers to Tunisian holiday resorts. Originally the airport was to be named after former Tunisian president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, but he fled the country and so the current name was given. Enfidha Airport proudly claims to be favoured by various airlines for its low operating costs and efficient operations, resulting in no delays and a turnaround time of under 50 minutes, thanks to its state-of-the art technology.
Arriving at Enfidha Airport, you will be able to find out about the transportation details from the Information Desk located within easy access at both the arrival and departure halls. If you are enjoying a stay at a resort, the hotel coaches will usually be parked at the front porch of the arrival hall awaiting your arrival. Otherwise, those proceeding to check out Enfidha City 45 kilometres away will have the option of taking a free scheduled shuttle bus from the airport. You will be able to attain the schedule from the Internet or the Information Desk. Alternatively, hop onto a taxi or rent a car for flexibility in routes!
Enfidha is a town in northeastern Tunisia with a population of approximately 10,000 and is usually visited by tourists on their way to Takrouna. It is largely agricultural. Most tourists are far likelier to be en route to the fabulous coastal resorts of Hammamet, Sousse, Skanes, Port El Kantaoui and Monastir, rather than this bustling town of 10,000. Otherwise, take a trip to Sousse's medina (Old Town) or Soula Shopping Centre (Place des Martyrs) at the medina entrance where you will be able to find Tunisia's handicraft of copper and brassware, hand-painted ceramic tiles, leather goods and traditional Berber textiles you can take home.
Travel to Hammamet, Tunisia’s number 1 beach town. The 10-kilometre beach with talc-soft sand curls around the Cap-Bon peninusula. Here you can swim, do water sports, as well as sunbathe, dine al fresco and disco until the wee hours. Jutting from the coastline is Hammamet’s Medina. Inside its medieval ramparts is a maze of alleyways, home to souks filled with rug sellers, spice market and hammams. North Africa’s oldest mosque, the Great Mosque is here as is the Kasbah. Climb to the top for widescreen sea views.
Hammamet has the best clubs this side of Ibiza for those you would like to party the night away. For those who like animals, Friguia Park is Tunisia’s first ever safari-style park where you can get up close to tigers, elephants, giraffes and sea-lions. You could round off the evening with a Zulu-themed show featuring infectious drumming, tribal dances and melodic songs at the Park’s circular Shaka restaurant.
