Djerba - Jerba

Jerba (or Djerba) is an island three miles off the southernmost coast of Tunisia and is one of Tunisia's most popular tourist spots. It is linked to the mainland by a bridge that was originally built as a causeway by the Roman empire.

Once on the island, you find that sandy beaches surround fertile fruit orchards, vegetable gardens and olive tree groves. Jerba is considered to be a Maritim Oasis.

The Island is home to historical Muslim mosques as well as Jewish temples such as El Ghriba, a synagogue that attracts visitors from all over the world.

There is a large tourist zone along the beaches. Twenty kilometers of hotel developments monopolize much of the beach area along the northeastern side of the island.
