With its endless beaches bathed in sunshine for around 300 days a year, its unspoilt, diverse hinterland, its colourful villages and rich heritage shaped by historical civilisations, Tunisia is a wonderful place to escape to. Tunisia has a reputation as a global wellness retreat, boasting a unique expertise in physical and mental wellness treatments. Many hotels make this their speciality, offering state-of-the-art facilities where ancestral rituals and the virtues of water are promoted.
This southern Tunisian island owes its nickname "Djerba la Douce" ("Djerba the gentle") to its mild climate all year round, ever-present sun and pleasant sea breeze. The island is fringed with magnificent sandy beaches leading up to turquoise waters and its inland is dotted with traditional whitewashed houses and lush, green palm groves. Djerba’s charming scenery, rich cultural heritage, strong sense of hospitality and excellent hotel facilities make it an ideal destination for a friendly and relaxing stay at any time of the year.
Midoun is the second biggest town on the island of Djerba. It is located in a region known for its typically Djerbian dwellings known as Menzels and its irrigated gardens. The old town is located inland while the hotel areas are spread along the coast. Midoun is also home to three different souks and an old olive oil mill which dates back three centuries. Distance from the airport: 25 km.
Houmt Souk is the administrative capital of Djerba and its name means "market district". It is famous for its old town, museums, historical monuments and bustling, colourful souks which attract the residents of the neighbouring towns and travellers in search of a change of scenery. Distance from the airport: 8 km.
Zarzis has only recently established itself as a seaside resort and continues to grow into the tourist extension of Djerba on the continent. Located on the mainland opposite Djerba, it boasts long beaches and large palm groves at the gates of its new districts. Distance from the airport: 50 km.
