About Plage Sidi Maharès

For a perfect, idealistic getaway, full of sun, sand, froth, and frolic visit  Plage Sidi Maharès. The island of Djerba surely checks all the right boxes with  Houmt Souk retaining its position as the focal point of a traveler's visit. Have an eyeful as you take in the old world charm of the whitewashed houses with its distinctive blue rooftops, and the stately elegance of the trimmed date palms conveying the perfect tropical vibe and feel. Get high on the sun-kissed sandy shores, ambling lazily even as you let yourselves be enveloped by the warmth of the sun, the salty foam of the waves, and the gusty winds billowing from the shores.

For the uninitiated check out the wares at the colorful and sprightly souks. Do invest in the amazingly fine and creative pieces of ceramic ware, just the right souvenirs to take home with you. Get to exercise albeit sweetly your vocal cords for a few haggling bouts just off the shore. Many people come here simply for the beaches, but the town itself has a calling because of its magnetic old-fashioned air despite the many tourist resorts. This is a  wonderful place to lap up some provincial spirit and live the sunny Tunisian culture where dreams come to fruition.
