From Djerba: Flamingo Island by Pirate Ship with Lunch

1. From Djerba: Flamingo Island by Pirate Ship with Lunch

At 8 AM, your driver will pick you up at your hotel and you will transfer to the port of Houmt Souk. There, you will be welcomed onto the boat. At 9 AM, the boat will leave the port with music, dancing, and entertainment provided by the crew. On the open sea, the boat will stop and there will be a demonstration of fishing with nets. After about an hour away from the port, you will arrive at Flamingo Island, a fascinating corner of Djerba still in a wild state. Enjoy the golden sand beach, sunbathing, and swimming in the crystal clear water. Around noon, meet at the hut for lunch. A delicious Tunisian meal. It will be served accompanied by traditional music and entertainment from the crew. After the meal, enjoy free time until 2:30 PM, when it's time to return. On the way back to the mainland, pick up the nets that were cast earlier before arriving back at the port. Your driver will then return you to your hotel.

Top activity ... driver on time and very friendly with accompaniment to the boat, then dynamic crossing with the crew who performs dances and acrobatics on the rigs then free time on arrival on the beach at 12h00 lunch under excellent tent with activities. Festive return to port ... In short, I recommend this activity and GETYOURGUIDE for their professionalism.

Had a nice and educational day around the island thanks to Monji the driver and guide Moana. Highlights of the day were Djerbahood with colorful graffitis, decorated entrance doors, cafes, and artist run small stores, and Houmt Souk. Note the main synagogue is closed on Saturdays.

The tour guide was very patient and knowledgeable. His English was excellent, and both he and the driver were very personable. He gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner too. I would highly recommend.

Happy experience! Although there were no flamingos at this time of the year, the trip was worth it and the ‘pirates’ never failed to boost everybody’s mood! Plus lunch was pretty good!
