Djerba has become an international tourist destination, but in spite of its concrete hotels, it has not lost one bit of its charm with its small streets deserted during siesta, its less-visited beach and its enchanting port where you can see the arrival of small fishing boats day by day. Don't forget to wander aimlessly along the small streets of Houm-Souk, to shop and admire the architectural quirks of the arcades. Also be sure to pay a visit to the ancient El Ghriba synagogue, seven miles south of Houmt-Souk; its richly decorated interior with paneling, mosaics and stained-glass windows makes it absolutely unmissable.
