Underground mosque and 400 crocodiles
Djerba‘s sights also include a host of mosques, including Al Katib, which is a reduced imitation of the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul. Al Katib is located near Midoun: framed by date palms and orchards, Djerba’s second-largest town is a pleasant place to visit. One of the rare underground mosques is located near the village of Sedouikech and can be visited.
Djerba Explore Park is situated roughly twelve miles from the airport. The park features boutiques, cafés and restaurants, as well as opportunities for leisure activities. It also houses the Lalla Hadria Museum where a large selection of Islamic art is on display. But the real highlight of the park is the island of crocodiles: encompassing more than 400 of these reptiles, it is the largest crocodile farm in the Mediterranean region.
The right beach to suit every taste
With a substantial number of charming beaches on offer, Djerba is, of course, an attractive beach holiday destination, further enhanced by mild temperatures and almost year-round sunny weather. The more than ten-mile long Sidi-Mahréz is the island’s most well-known beach and ideal for families with young children. Seguia beach near Aghir is a quieter option with few hotels and numerous romantic coves. Other delightful beaches are scattered around the island, including El Qantara in the south and Sidi Jmour in the west. If a break from all the sunbathing sounds appealing, the mainland can easily be reached via the almost five-mile long Roman dam in the south of Djerba.
