Ile de Jerba Travel Guide: 234 reviews and 750 photos

The island of Djerba is 514 sq km big and situated in the south-east of Tunisia on the Gulf of Gabes. They call the island the Polynesia of the Mediterranean, but this is a little exaggerated. Ten thousand palm trees rising from the sea like a mirage and the island is ringed by miles of fine sandy beaches and luxury hotels, ultra modern or built in the fashion of the traditional Djerba "menzel". Me and my family nestled ourselves in one of those luxury hotels and enjoyed a week of the Djerbian weather, food and culture. So all the tips you find are “all inclusive” inspired.

Splendid in its diversity Djerba offers a variety of Roman sites and a pirates castle, the ancient synagogue of the Griba , and the fortress like mosques , potters and silversmiths still faithful to the art of their craft, the bustle of the open air markets.

Hospitable and friendly Djerba welcomes you to participate in its festivals - watch the "Gougou" dancers in Midoun, join a wedding procession following the bride hidden high on a camel and preceded by the joyous music of tambourines and flutes.
