Enfidha Airport, also known as Enfidha Hammamet Airport, is located just a short journey from the centre of town making it a convenient entry point into the country.
With a huge variety of things to see and do across Tunisia, hiring a car whilst here will allow you to tailor your itinerary to suit your tastes and interests. Whether you decide to stay relatively local or head out further afield to the likes of Sousse or the Chott El Jerid Salt Flats, you will be sure to have an unforgettable trip.
Sightseeing in Enfidha
Whilst Enfidha itself lacks major tourist attractions, this small town has a charming atmosphere. It's worth taking a wander, if only to see a traditional Tunisian town. The old church houses a small museum with a small collection of mosaic epitaphs and tombstones. During the evening, take your pick from one of the many popular cafes which bustle with locals.
The nearby town of Hammamet, nicknamed the Tunisian St Tropez is bursting with things to see and do. Located less than 25 miles from Enfidha, it's a very easy journey too when you have a hire car. Soak up the sun on the magnificent beaches where you can have a ball with a wide range of water sports before indulging yourself at the many restaurants, bars, shops and markets.
Whilst there, head to Hammamet Fort which dates to 1475. It's no longer in use of course but can you tour the fort for a small fee and enjoy fantastic sea views. Carthage Land, the first theme park ever to be opened in Africa, is found nearby too so head here with the family in tow for a great day out or perhaps even visit Friguia Park, an animal park home to a wide variety of creatures.
Day Trips From Enfidha
Your own car will provide plenty of flexibility and the opportunity to embark on some exciting day trips. Ichkeul Lake and National Park lies to the north of Tunis but should definitely be included in your plans. It's recognised and protected by UNESCO status and is a known stopover for thousands of migratory birds from ducks to flamingos!
Venture to El Jem, where you can step back in history with a visit to the Colosseum. Almost as large as that in Rome and dating back to the 3rd Century AD, it's a fantastic historical building and well worth a visit.
Travel into southern Tunisia where the landscape gives way to the incredible Sahara Desert. Enjoy an overnight tent experience, allowing you to witness the sun rise over glossy dunes. Take a camel trek across the sand. The town of Tozeur is a great base for such adventures.
