What to do and see in Houmt Souk, Tunisia: The Best Places and Tips

January 5, 2018 Brandee Mangan

Houmt-Souk is a tranquil cultural hub, a peaceful meeting point of varying religions and ethnicities. Nowhere is this melange more evident than at the markets, where you could spend hours, even days, poring over locally crafted pottery, jewelry, leather goods, textiles and artwork, as well as a bounty of fruits, vegetables, spices and meats. Don’t miss the beachside fortress, a massive 15th-century structure that’s one of the most important archaeological sites of the region.

Bechir was an exceptionally intelligent and well-informed tour guide. He gave me an intriguing tour around the ancient sites of Carthage, and explained the background and meaning of the mosaics at the Bardo Museum. I had read about Le Golfe restaurant, which is on the...MoreThank you very much Sylvia. Bechir and us are very happy of your feedback. We hope to see you again in Tunisia for new visits.

This museum is in a lovely old building that seems to go on forever. Very clean and well organized with diorama like depictions of various traditions and cultural events related to the people of Djerba Island. The only downside was the camel used to demonstrate preparation of cereal grains. He was not happy at all. But at least they no longer have a real camel in the olive oil press room (I've been told it stunk!) - now it's a replica. Great view from the entrance over the sea.

Close to Djerba Marina, you can get a wonderful sightseeing over Mediterranean Sea and a nice time by visiting one of the oldest monuments of Djerba. Since you well be close to the marina I also recommend that you take a trip on a pirate boat or that you visit Houmt Souk's market.

Markt/Basar in Houmt Souk

Reviewed By Northern_Baggie - Bury, England

Bizarre as it may seem this was the parting memory on a Thursday afternoon visit to the flea market at Houmt Souk.
Arrived via a very cheap cab journey from hotel zone. Two parts to the market. A flea market that sold piles of used clothes as well as everything else you could think of and an established bazaar.
Pretty much nothing of note in the flea market although just walking around makes you realise that you are in the developing world. Things were much better in the bazaar. Lots of shops with uber cheap prices. Plenty of cafe's to boot too!
Having had hassle walking around Egypt this was a totally different experience. A firm 'Non Merci' to traders worked well when needed. Equally, the two ladies in my group had a very relaxed experience which again was great.
Visit with an open mind and see what you can find.

Divertimento assicurato. Nonostante era ora di pranzo non abbiamo sofferto il caldo. La guida ci ha fatto fare un bel giro panoramico, diversi percorsi per sbizzarrirsi un po e poi arrivo alla laguna che è spettacolare.

Очень любопытный музей "народного творчества" - картины и прочее рукоделие. Вообще, на Джербе не так уж много чего посмотреть, но это место - одно из них. Обязательно стоит заглянуть, если есть такая возможность. Галерея расположена в местечке Хумт-Сук. И, как и во многих других "прикладных" музеях, процесс создания "шедевров" тоже можно понаблюдать.
Ну и цены не "ломовые".

Suk jak suk dla turystów ze wszelkimi pamiątkami, złotem, przyprawami itp., ale dla mnie ciekawsze było wejście głębiej w część targową dla tubylców.
Znajdowało się tam targowisko owocowo-warzywne, mięsne i z rękodziełem, oraz z jedzeniem. Gorąco polecam zaglądnąć tam.
