The famous DjerbaIsland, a luxury resort in the Gulf of Gabes in southeast Tunisia, is nicknamed "the Island of the Golden Sands" because of the abundance of its sparkling, sandy beaches. You should spend five days to a week on the island.

The most beautiful beaches in Djerba: Sidi Hacchani, Sidi Mahrez and Sidi Bakkour are located northeast of the island and offer many water activities, such as jet skiing, parasailing, etc.
Besides beaches, Djerba has many other treasures awaiting you. After taking a swim, escape to the great outdoor theatre of Houmt Souk built in 2004, which is particularly the beautiful part of the Ulysses Festival. Take a camel ride in the desert or explore the sand dunes with a quad.
On the island is the Museum of the Arts and Traditions of the Houmt Souk, which recently became the Traditional Heritage Museum of Djerba. This cultural centre will catch the eye of culture seekers. The museum contains the rich folklore of the island and has copies of the Koran and cooking utensils on display. This museum is undeniably successful with 100,000 visitors a year.
