Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Djerba Island, Tunisia, Your Home Away From Home

Lying just off Tunisia’s eastern coast, in the Gulf of Gabes, Djerba Island is a popular tourist destination. The island is renowned for its wonderful beaches and dramatic sunsets, drawing thousands of visitors from throughout Europe every year. Visitors spending their holidays on Djerba Island will also discover that the island’s mainly flat, semi-arid landscape was used for the exterior scenes for the first Star Wars film in 1977. There are two main towns on the island – Houmt-Souk and Ajim, where the majority of the self catering holiday rental apartments and villas can be found.

Things to Do on Holiday in Djerba Island, Tunisia

Although Djerba Island covers an area of just under 200 square miles, making it North Africa’s largest, it can still be easily explored in a hired car, moped or on a bicycle. Walkers and hikers can also take advantage of a guided tour into the island’s arid interior, where they may enjoy a camel ride and really feel like a local! It will come as no surprise to visitors spending their holidays on Djerba Island to discover that water sports activities are very popular here. Kayaking, windsailing, jet-skiing, scuba diving or a ride on a ‘banana boat’ can all be enjoyed. The less energetic tourists, however, can simply relax on the warm sands and top-up the tan, before cooling off in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Gabes.

We paid a little extra to have the pool to ourselves (ie the adjoining villa was left empty) which was definitely worth it. It was a great location and we had a lovely holiday there. It's preferable to have a car but the local shops are within walking distance. The villa is spacious with a proper kitchen allowing for easy self-catering, and a good sized pool. Highly recommend it.

It’s spacious, with balconies and terraces on every side, allowing us to choose to sit in the sun or the shade as required. My partner was delighted with what she called “a proper kitchen with proper cooking utensils” and we breakfasted on the terrace and dined in the large, adjacent dining room. We couldn’t help but feel superior to our fellow tourists packed away in their crowded hotels."
