Visit Djerba

Beaches, Desert, Museums, Excursions

At 500 square metres, the island of Djerba is the largest in North Africa and is joined to the mainland by a long bridge of Roman origins. Defined by many as the pearl of the Mediterranean, Djerba enjoys a mild, pleasant climate all year round and offers a warm crystalline sea with long stretches of white sandy beach.

Djerba is an island waiting to be discovered. It is famous for its picturesque villages lined with small blue and white houses surrounded by fields of date palms and ancient olive trees.

The location is also famous for its Arab and Berber inspired craftsmanship and the traditional cuisine - the best-known dish being cous cous!  Not forgetting the famous sand bread and traditional mint tea. Thanks to its direct connection to the mainland, Djerba also offers excursions to the Sahara desert and the Tunisian hinterland.

Our staff is at your disposal to organise trips and help you plan excursions and hire cars or equipment. Please contact us for more information.

The national parks of Toui and Jebil lie beyond the lakes of Kirchaou Samar and Qasr Mehhiri, in the interior of Tunisia. The scenery is varied, ranging from plains and low dunes to evocative desert landscapes and sand drifts as high as 200 m. The parks cover an area of over 1550 km!

Douz - 275 km.

Douz, which has always been considered the gateway to the Sahara, is the city that once housed the region's largest oasis. Since ancient times, this has been the departure point for expeditions to discover the Sahara ... Every year, Douz is the venue for the famous "Sahara Festival", an event that takes tourists on a discovery of the ancient traditions of the Berber populations. It really is a must-see!
