"Hergla: a hidden gem by the sea" Top 5 Page for this destination Tunisia Off The Beaten Path Tip by Elisabcn
Tunisia Off The Beaten Path: 144 reviews and 270 photos
But being next to the tourist villages of Sousse and Port El Kantaoui I guess that it won’t be like this for a long time! Hergla is a quiet sea town, one of the last of its kind, where everything is blue and white. There are not many things to do in Hergla but it deserves a short visit to walk along the streets, enjoy its quiet life and the beautiful views of the small port and the sea (picture 1). The mosque square is very nice too. There is a simple but very beautiful white mosque (picture 2)dedicated to the holy Muslim man Bou Mendel. It is said that after his death he flew away to Mecca on a handkerchief! Two craft shops with some women working the halfa complete the painting.
Directions: Central East of Tunisia
