You could be fooled into thinking you've landed on a Spanish or Italian island when you unpack your bags at the start of holidays in Djerba.
Bring your swimsuit! When you go on your holidays to Djerba you’ll encounter some of the finest beaches in North Africa...
This idyllic beach destination in Tunisia offers the aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the sweeping gold and white sands, and the sunny weather associated with popular, European sunshine break destinations. You will just get spicy North African flavours and a hefty slice of culture to boot.
With lovely beaches lapped by warm waters, the scintillating isle of Djerba – North Africa's largest – has been on the tourist radar for our continental neighbours for years. However, Brits are only just cottoning on to the charms of Djerba holidays, despite Djerba-Zarzis International Airport (DJE) being just a three-hour flight from the UK.
Situated off the coast of Tunisia in the Gulf of Gabes, Djerba offers a laidback vibe and myriad chances to unwind. Parasols and palm trees provide shade on the beaches when the sun is high in the sky, and the capital – Houmt Souk – is crammed with shady spots, buzzing market stalls and cool cafés. But there is plenty to see and do during your break if you want a change from chilling out. Film buffs, for example, will love taking a peek at the desert backdrop used in the original Star Wars film in the town of Ajim.
Many visitors pick a base in the tourist area – Zone Touristique – on the lovely north-east coast of the island. Here, you'll find an excellent selection of hotels, plus places to eat, drink and play, with lots of water sports on offer on the beaches. There are cheap hotels available for those on a budget. However, checking in at one of the many fine four- and five-star luxury hotels, some of which offer the option to go all-inclusive, is the best option if you can afford it. For a quieter, more authentic taste of Djerba, it is also worth considering hotels in the smaller beach resorts of the south coast.
Don't wait any longer to discover Djerba's many delights. TravelSupermarket's easy-to-use search tool will compare prices and bring you the best deals from a bargain break in Djerba.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members.
