The island of Djerba

Djerba Travel Guide is a guide for Djerba (or Jerba), this most famous island of Tunisia with its 514 km² (25 by 20 kilometers) located in the Gulf of Gabés (also called Little Sirte) in the south-east of Tunisia. It is the largest island in North Africa (125 kilometers of coastline).

It is connected to the mainland by a ferry, ensuring the crossing between Ajim and Jorf, and by the kantara, a 7 kilometer road dating back to Roman times, the south-eastern end of the island to the Zarzis peninsula.

Djerba has 120,000 inhabitants, nearly 44,000 of whom live in Houmt Souk, the largest city on the island and its administrative capital. Its inhabitants are mainly Arabic speakers although there is a large Berber speaking community there.

Moreover, most of the island is a rural area occupied by villages of Berber origin such as Mezraya, Ghizen, Tezdaine, Wersighen, Sedouikech, Ajim and Guellala.
