Reasons To Visit Djerba
The island of Djerba, also transliterated as Jerba or Jarbah, is located in the south of Tunisia and is known for its beautiful beaches, rich heritage and many exciting outdoor possibilities. Djerba has a surprising number of heritage sites for a coastal getaway which means your visit doesn’t just have to be all about sunbathing. Be sure to check out the village of Guellala noted for its pottery production since Roman times or the Houmt Souk.

Arriving In Djerba
Djerba-Zarzis International Airport is situated on the island of Djerba in Tunisia and primarily handles seasonal charter flights from regional and European destinations. If you are looking to catch flights from the UAE to Djerba you won’t be able to make the journey directly, but the airport has plenty of connections which makes it possible to travel from the UAE with just a single transfer.
At the airport you will find only the bare essentials when it comes to amenities and facilities, so make sure you bring any essential items you need along with you. However, there are a couple of places to eat and drink on site as well as general shops to pick up any basics. Once your flight has landed at the airport you will be around 10 km away from the city center of Djerba - the easiest way to get to the city is to hop in one of the metered taxis available just outside of the terminal building.
