I was always surprised about "why not djerba " in the british market , as its very popular with germans and french tourists , it could be that no direct links go between the british isles and djerba ,it seems things are changing now ,first for the weather it would certainly be more convenient than the northern parts meaning warmer and longer day light due to the latitude ,its even closer to the desert for the day and 2-3 days excursions so u gain in tarvelling time as you are 500 km closer than hammamet , and last but not least its interesting on its own ,lots to see for first timers , have a look at this site http://lexicorient.com/tunisia/jerba.htm a lot of good work was done by the auther there ,I hope that helps , I will make some more research about things this time of the year ,as it was said its a whole lot calmer in the winter than in the summer where its full 100% ,mind you if u choose a holiday that matches school holidays in the continent you will find a lot of people their .
Panorama does holidays to Djerba and the reps who were in Kerkennah in the summer were moved to Djerba for the winter season.
Their names are Rashid and Marylin - they have been there before and said it is a great place with temperatures higher than the mainland and that is why Panorama does not offer Kerkennah at this time of the year but Djerba - and they move their reps there.
Hope you have a great time - please let us know how it was when you get back.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh - and if you meet Rashid and Marilyn - please give them a hug from Anna and Monika and say we will see them in Kerkennah end of July
If you like pottery/ceramics Djerba is the place, take an empty suitcase.
The hotels that I saw all looked very luxurious.
(already planning next year's Feb ;))
So upset I do not have any A/L left till April.....
Does anyone know a name of a good restarant? It's our wedding anniverasy while we are over on holiday?
We're getting married in September and have been looking at Djerba for 2 weeks of total relaxation
Now I'm getting mixed reviews and am starting to worry
can anyone offer any advice for me?
Thanks in advance
the hotel were looking at, if I can spell this correctly is the Vincini Alkatara Thalassa hotel about 6 km from Midoun in a very Quiet place?
Any info would be great!!
It is the hidden paradise of Tunisia. I only spent 2 days there, wish I had longer. It's very different from mainland Tunisia and the lifestyle of the locals is far more laid back, calm and relaxed.
Weather is better than mainland and from April to November the weather will be brilliant.
I love Djerba!!
Djerba is a lovely island. It is nothing like mainland tunisia, it's more like a tropical island situated in the med.
The pace of lifestyle here is much more laid back, the weather is lovely, the people are friendly and the beaches are to die for in the summer months. You wont get the crowds of Hammamet and PEK or other mainland tourist resorts here.
Go for the highest star hotel you can find and trust me, you'll love it. September the weather will be fabulous. Anytime I go to Tunisia for longer than 2 weeks, I have promised myself I will spend at least 5 of those 14 days in Djerba.
I love Djerba !!
