Temperatures for April in Djerba will usually average around 18°C. However peak daily temperatures of 22°C are likely throughout the month, offering a fabulous introduction to the warmer part of the weather cycle. And because average lows only fall to 14°C, the consistency in the weather is one reason April is very popular with visitors from across the world.

But rather than being located in the depths of the desert, this piece of film history is situated on the cliff top with magnificent views out over the ocean. 17 kilometres north is the town of Sidi Jermour which acted as the town of Anchorage in the movies. Do your research before you go and there are a range of opportunities to take you to a galaxy far, far away.

Or go into the dunes and try your hand at quad racing. It's a brilliant way to get around and enjoy some excitement too.
