A picturesque spot
Just off the coast of Tunisia is said to be North Africa’s largest island, and, with coast aplenty and sea views to die for, it’s a haven for sun worshippers and, bizarrely, Star Wars fanatics. Famed in mythology as the island of the lotus eaters, it’s now more likely to be remembered as the island of cocktail drinkers. Cheers!

Anyone with an interest in sci-fi seems drawn to the seaport of Ajim, which, briefly in 1977 was transformed into the pirate spaceport of Mos Eisley for the first Star Wars movie. Today, you can visit the locations used for the legendary cantina scene, but you’ll have to check your lightsabre in at the door.
Must be there for:
Ras as-Sana marks the Islamic celebration of New Year on 1st January... and if you’re on Djerba for some festive fun, you might want to cure your Hogmanay hangover by joining the locals for a cup of hot, sweet tea.
· Don’t forget to make a trip to see Ali Baba’s ‘cave’ in Guellala, which, dating back to the Romans, now hosts an underground olive press and enough amphora to hide more than 40 thieves.
British citizens do not need a visa to enter Tunisia. However, you will need a passport that extends for at least three months longer than the intended duration of your stay, and evidence of a return ticket.
