Explore pristine beaches and charming villages on a vacation on Djerba Island, a small island in the Gulf of Gabes known for its Berber population.
Cave of Ali Berbere and Fort Ghazi Mustapha will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Musee du Patrimoine Traditionnel Djerbien and El Ghriba Synagogue. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Sentido Djerba Beach, get to know the resident critters at Djerba Explore, stroll around Krokodilfarm Animalia, and explore the historical opulence of Fort de Borj El Kastil.

Tozeur

Tozeur ©
With its otherworldly desert atmosphere, Tozeur has served as a filming location for blockbuster movies such as "Star Wars," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and "The English Patient." The ancient oasis has successfully preserved its traditional geometric architecture, craftsmanship, and fashion, especially in the medina--the old city--where friendly locals extend a warm welcome to visitors.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sahara Desert and Ksour of Tamerza. Step out of the city life by going to Chott El Jerid and La Corbeille. There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Tamerza Canyon, take a stroll through Le Vieux Quartier de Ouled el Hadef (Medina), and admire the verdant scenery at Mides Valley.
