What to do in
Djerba ?

Djerba didn’t wait for invention of the All Inclusive resort to start sharing its joys with visitors. Carthaginian, Roman, and Byzantine people all enjoyed the hospitality, mild weather, and exquisite scenery found there. This pearl of Tunisia is Arabic, Jewish, and Berber all at once, and continues to entice millions of visitors with its unique atmosphere which Gustave Flaubert summed up perfectly: “an island covered with gold dust, verdure, and birds, [...] citrus trees higher than cedars, [...] air so mild it keeps you from dying.” Ready to go yet?

    It's wrong to think that Djerba is best experienced in a group or organised tour. It's simply not true! This Tunisian island is perfectly suited to independent travel. No need either for an entire week of family holiday to enjoy it. It’s perfect for a long weekend. Should you go with friends or as a couple? It doesn’t matter! Whatever you choose, you’ll find good times await.

    What kind of good times? Sun, for starters! It shines year-round and is never overbearing, as sea breezes compensate for any solar excess, all summer long. Then there’s the sunbathing: long, lazy days laid out on the fine, golden sand beaches listening to the waves of a turquoise sea. With 300 kilometres of coastline, you’ll have no trouble finding a place to lay your towel. And finally, a feast for your senses. An aroma of spices wafts from a stall as you turn a corner on a narrow street. Flavours dance across your palate as you sample shakshuka, usban or sellou, specialities in Djerba. Colours light up the night as you dance your way across Djerba’s trendy night club dance floors.

    • Sunbathe and swim in pure crystal waters. The sandy beaches of Djerba are among the nicest on the Mediterranean. If Homer is to be believed, Ulysses himself spent time here!
    • Dance the night away in the clubs of Midoun, Sidi Merhez or Houmt Souk. In summer, double your pleasure in the seaside clubs where cresting waves accompany your champagne.
    • Sample one of the main specialities on the island: fish couscous! It combines the fine, salty taste of grouper, whiting, or pollock with fresh vegetables, chickpeas, cinnamon and harissa.
    • Take to the sea to observe the waders dancing on flamingo island. There are many slow-sailing boats that offer tours year round.
    • Gallop on the back of a camel for the fun of it, or better, on horseback, letting your thoroughbred fly full speed across the sand dunes. An incomparable feeling of freedom.
    • Stop off in the village of Erriadh. There you’ll find the over 200 works of different street artists who've turned this village into an outdoor museum.
    • While you're there, go into the El Ghriba synagogue, home to one of Northern Africa’s last Jewish communities. With its blue tiles, white walls and stained glass, it is truly unforgettable.
    • Stroll through the streets of Houmt Souk, the “capital” of the island. Sip a mint tea on a café terrace or bargain for souvenirs in the island's most beautiful souks.
    • Hang around the market in Midoun, the second largest city on the island. There you’ll find colourful pottery, quality spices, and the delicious dates for which it’s renowned.
    • Mind your fingers in front of the sharp teeth of Djerba Explore Park's 400 crocodiles. Take the time to explore their incredible museum as well, the Lalla Hadria Museum. The more than 1,000 objects spread over 15 galleries tell the story of the rich history of the region.
