in long, hot summer days with extremely little rainfall. The island features at
least 300 days of warm sunshine per year and experiences extremely warm weather
for the duration of the winter months. Djerba Island
is defiantly an outstanding year round holiday destination. The months of April

and dry, with mean daily temperatures ranging from 23 ºC in the month of April

during the wintertime it is unlike for the region to experience two
uninterrupted days of rainfall. Even though Djerba is not an extremely hot
winter sun vacation, the area still features a great deal of sun. Approximately
ten hours of sunshine per day throughout the summer and around seven hours per
day in the winter time. This is then still ideal for tourists to enjoy outdoor
lesuires such as sightseeing, playing golf and generally just escaping the
chilly temperatures of other European cities.

summer months on the Djerba

area is hot, a common sea breeze that is always present throughout the island
will help lower the temperatures by around 10 degrees at night time. Average
sea temperatures range from 20 to 23 in the summertime and remain relatively
warm throughout autumn and spring. Spring is yet another ideal time to take
pleasure in a beautiful beach holiday as the daily climates still linger around
20 in March while they rise to 26 in May. With rainfall be quite rare, it can
actually be surprising how many flower and plant life do bloom on the Djerba Island.
