Legend says that Djerba was the island of the Lotus-Eaters that Odysseus had discovered during his voyage through the Mediterranean than followed from other civilizations such as the Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Berbers, Jewish and lastly Arabs landed on the Island.
Different other communities from South Europe (Spanish, Turkish, French...) had disputed the control of the Island over centuries. All theses civilizations left behind a unique remarkable historical heritage.
As a major seaside resort of the Mediterranean, Djerba has launched its tourism industry in the late 60’s thanks to its 150 km long golden beaches and romantic sunsets.
