A tour in town is recommended to get a glimpse of Tunisian life – from the fishing port to the lively markets, and the beautiful “funduqs” houses (some are hundred of years old). There is also a special small church and two notable mosques (Mosque of the Turks and Mosque of the Strangers).
Among the many mosques in Djerba’s villages, two should not be missed: the Turkish Mosque in El May, in the heart of the island, with whitewashed walls, this fortified mosque is simply beautiful. El May’s market is also worth a visit. In Mellita, another village near the airport, their 9th-century Mosque is one of the oldest in the world.
This restaurant and casino offers entertainment and fun for the whole evening. Drop by at the downstairs bar, get some live music on the top floor, indulge yourself in tasty food at the restaurant or play a round of roulette at the casino. No matter what you're looking for, it's always worth a visit.
The best way to get anywhere in Djerba is by taxi. They are cheap and readily available in all main beach resorts, everywhere and at all times of the day or night. Once you find a taxi driver you like, ask for his phone number and he will be happy to come pick you up and give you a ride. If you’re a group, another good option is to use shared taxis, which go to a fixed destination. They leave only when they’re full. If you need a booking back to the airport, it’s also good to ask your hotel. If you have time, an original way to explore Djerba is by bicycle or small motorbike. Ask your hotel for more details about rentals.
