Beaches, souks and the prettiest sunsets
The best beaches are found along Ras R'mel Peninsula. The area is simply beautiful. You can rent a bike or a car to tour the tiny villages or just lounge the days away on the beach. This is also the best place to enjoy local and fresh fish at a family-run restaurant. The locals here are very open, many of them selling handicrafts from their homes which include Bedouin silver jewellery and other trinkets. Don't miss out on the Turkish baths as well.
When the sun sets, don't miss the spectacular display of colours on the north-western side of the island at Borj Djillidj. It's the best place to enjoy the view. There is a pretty lighthouse there as well as a tiny port where fishermen go to catch octopus with clay pots, the traditional way to do it. As for souks, head to Houmt, a colourful market place near Place de Algerie to buy your local textiles, spices, tasty dates, loofahs and other souvenirs like pottery and drums. While on Djerba, you can also enjoy the Guellala Museum, El Ghriba Synagogue, Jama Fadloud, Djerba Explore wildlife park and Royal Carriage Club horseback riding stables during the day.
