Djerba, an inexpensive Sun and Sea Destination

Pirate Boat
For those of us who want a relaxing holiday where you can chill out and enjoy the sun and sea, without it costing a fortune then Djerba could well be an option. The hotel I stayed at Park Inn by Radisson, which looked as if it had been built quite recently, is of a good standard, although their buffet restaurant where we dined, is not for the discerning eater. However, the hotel does have three restaurants and I would imagine the other two, particularly the grill Fish Market at Houmt Soukwhich overlooks the sea would be better if only for its lovely views.
Hotels in Tunisia, of which Djerba is an island off the main coast, have excellent spas with lots of different therapies for all types of ailments. Our hotel, covering what appeared to be the entire basement, had a large Thalasso therapy centre with an extensive range of treatments.
If you speak French then you will be in your element. A holiday to Djerba is a great opportunity to practise the language. If however you don’t, then away from the international hotels you may have a problem communicating with the local people. However, as tourism is a very important factor on the island and the people are very friendly, it is likely that with the use of mime you would easily get by. DSCF1654

Thanks to the Tunisian National Tourist Office who organised the trip.
