Holidays to Djerba, Tunisia

Overview

Imagine whitewashed buildings, tropical beaches and camels trekking across the sand dunes and you have a pretty good idea of what Djerba’s like. This island, off the coast of Tunisia, is a mini paradise that attracts those who are looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The Zone Touristique is the main section where visitors go but there’s also a lot of culture here in the colourful Houmt Souk where locals sell their handmade goods.

Things to Do

If you’re looking to get out of the Zone Touristique for the day, drive 20 minutes for a day trip out to Houmt Souk. This colourful, tiled “city” is home to a medieval fortress and narrow alleyways full of market stalls where you can buy tagines or leather bags and try your hand at a spot of haggling! Alternatively, go dolphin spotting while enjoying a BBQ on a galleon style boat for the day!

Beaches

With 125 km of coastline, beach bums are spoilt for choice! The sand is pale and soft to the touch and the ocean is clean making the beaches perfect for families. Local businesses also take advantage of the beach culture by offering water sports such a windsurfing, parasailing and jetskiing. If you prefer to stay on dry land though, camel treks along the beach are frequent and are an alternative way to see the beaches on the island.

Food and Drink

In the Zone Touristique, there are many places to find breakfast, lunch or dinner so you’re bound to find something you and your family will like. From traditional Tunisian cuisine to more westernised food you’ll find dishes like lamb and fresh fish on most menus for dinner. For an evening party, alcohol is very limited on the island but Sidi Mahres beach hosts great parties throughout the summer if you do want to dance the night away!
