The temperature drops into the realms of warm to mild in Djerba’s Mediterranean resorts during November/December. With an average maximum temperature of 20°C, Djerba in November/December is heading for its cool, wet, winter season, but is still very sunny. December is a very pleasant time to travel to Djerba. It is also a good month for excursions into the southern desert regions of Tunisia, which remain dry, but offer bearable daytime temperatures, although nights are exceedingly cold.

Since 2015, the Tunisian government has improved protective security in major cities and tourist resorts. Security forces remain on a high state of alert in Tunisia.

The beautiful island of Djerba has an international airport, known as Djerba Airport or Djerba-Zarzis Airport. The airport consists of a terminal and a runway and is mainly used in the summer (June to September). The airport offers many connections to and from airports in France, Italy, Germany and Russia. Local companies Tunisair Express and Nouvelair offer domestic flights to Tunis-Carthage Airport (45-min flight). Most hotels and resorts in Djerba are located not far from the airport in the northeast of the island, in the so-called “Zone Touristique.”
