Island of Djerba

An island of ten thousand palm trees rising from the sea like a mirage. The Polynesia of the Mediterranean is ringed by miles of fine sandy beaches and luxury hotels ultra modern or built in the fashion of the traditional Djerbian “menzel”, stand ready to welcome the traveler.

Splendid in its diversity Djerba offers a variety of sea sports, Roman sites and a pirates castle, the ancient synagogue of the Ghriba, and the fortress like mosques, potters and silversmiths still faithful to the art of their craft, the bustle of the open air markets. Discover the shady gardens of the interior, orchards of figs, apples and pomegranate, wander through groves of olive trees, gnarled trunks bearing witness to the centuries past.

The magnificent weather, mild in winter, warm in summer lends itself to a variety of sports and activities, sail to the island of the pink flamingo, windsurf year round or tour the island by bicycle.

Hospitable and friendly Djerba welcomes you to participate in its festivals – watch the “Gougou” dancers, join a wedding procession following the bride hidden high on a camel and preceded by the joyous music of tambourines and flutes. Steel a few precious moments to share the splendor of a breathtaking sunset with fishermen casting their nets. Refreshed and relaxed return again and again.
