This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences.

Djerba, Tunisia, is a small island only a few kilometers off the coast from the mainland. It is best known among tourists as a beach holiday destination and many Europeans spend their holidays at one of the resorts in Djerba. It would be an underestimation to assume that Djerba has nothing to offer but luxurious resorts for a bargain though. Djerba, Tunisia, has something to offer for every kind of tourist and may have more cultural sites than you expect.

Most resort hotels are on Djerba’s east coast and thus a place to avoid if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture. On the rest of the island, you can see the cultural habits of the local people and are a better place to book a Djerba, Tunisia hostel on a cultural trip. The people in Djerba are culturally quite distinct from the people on the Tunisian mainland, so visiting Djerba will definitely add value to your cultural experiences in Tunisia if you also visit other places in the country. One of the best places in Djerba is the Houmt Souk. It is relatively cheap shopping, without the hassle you would experience in the resort areas. The market at Houmt Souk is colourful and the port area is a pleasant place to walk around. In Guellala -- in the south of Djerba -- you can watch pottery being made and is also worth a visit. After a day of sightseeing you can watch the sunset on the west coast, or just enjoy the beach. Pretty much every beach that is not in the east is fairly quiet.

Most accommodations in Djerba are resort hotels, but there are a few hostel-like accommodations that cater independent travelers. However, most do not offer dorms. Prices of private rooms are very competitive and nearly the same as a dorm room elsewhere in Tunisia and North Africa hostels. Typically the private accommodations with the cheapest prices and good reviews also offer the most hostel-like vibe and are the best places to meet fellow travelers.
