Djerba Island

When we mention the beaches of Tunisia, the first place that comes to mind is the Island of Djerba with some of the most idyllic beaches that inspired many film makers, photographers and even poets like the immortal Homer, that described it as the island as the thousand palm trees.

You don’t have to be a poet or a photographer to be amazed by the beauty of the beaches of white powdery sands and incredibly turquoise waters.

Fun on the Island of Djerba, Tunisia

During the last few decades many resort hotels have developed a “Zone Touristique” on the north of the island, maintaining the original character of Djerba in the south, like the white washed town of Houmt Souk with narrow alleys and souvenir shops and interesting Djerban architecture, mosques and even an ancient synagogue which is the oldest in North Africa.

Don’t miss the sightseeing even if you have to do some camel trekking and 4 wheel driving.

The resorts are mostly private, there are a few public ones such as

  • Plage des 5,000 Ans or the beach of 5,000 Years about 8 Km from Houmt Souk
  • Plage Municipale
  • A few calm beaches between Aghir and El-Kantara.
  • Sidi Mahrez
  •  Seguia.
