Midoun Things to Do

  • Midoun Mosques

    We passed a couple of attractive mosques in Midoun but none were open at the time. In any case, we probably wouldn't have been allowed visit as most mosques on the island are off-limits to non muslims.

  • Town Hall

    Midoun's Town Hall, with its white walls and blue doors and shutters, has a similar design to many buildings in Jerba. The buildings are painted a strong white in order to deflect the strong sun.

  • Olive Pressing

    Olives and olive oil are very popular in Jerba (At every restaurant where we ate in Jerba we were served olives as an appetiser and they featured often on our starters and main courses as well) and you can learn about the traditional manufacture of olive oil at the olive press in Midoun.

Midoun Restaurants

  • Good value meal

    We asked the taxi driver to take us from Aghir to Midoun (6km), to a restaurant. On the way through the town of Midoun he pointed out a "chic" place, as he put it, then he dropped us at this "normal" one. The menu was limited, and even some of menu was not available, but there was a Tunisian family, smartly dressed, looking very "at home" which I...

  • Best cafe in Midoun

    Les Delices D'Ulysee is a nice cafe/restaurant in Midoun. After a walk around the town we returned here for a coffee and mint tea. It was different to most Tunisian cafes in that there were as many women here as men. The waiters were very friendly and it was very good value. We sat out on the terrace facing the street though the inside, when we saw...

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taxi's will bring you right into the centre of Midoun. From within the touristic area, this will cost you about 4 Dinar.

  • Souvenirs at Midoun

    For such a small town Midoun has plenty of stalls selling souvenir goods. Midoun is very close to Sidi Mahres where many tourist hotels are located so I imagine a lot of visitors come here to see something of Jerba other than the beach and a four star hotel. Many of the shops seemed to be selling the same old souvenirs. I'm surprised there are so...

  • Souks

    The souks have the stuff that will typically be sold in places where herds of tourists come. The shops sell small dromedary-toys, chess games, water-pipes, groceries, tea, ... Too much anyway if you are not speaking tunesian of arab :-)

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are in Jerba (and in the larger part of North Africa) you will find yourself in the game of negotiating the price of any article you may be interested in. This can be quiet a pain, as you seem to have no reference point to define a good price and to know when you are making a deal that is OK.

    Unique Suggestions: First thing to do when you come to Djerba is to find a fixed price magasin. These are controlled by government. They may not give the best prices, but they will give you an idea on what regular prices are. Once you know this price, keep it in mind while shopping.

    Beware however to talk about these prices, as all other vendors will tell you that they deliver poor quality. This is NOT the case! I've seen a German lady paying 160 Dinar for a chessgame that was sold across the street in the fixed price shop at 14 Dinar.

    In Midoun, the largest fixed price shop is called SOYA and is located in the Souks of Midoun. (The shop that sells leather jackets and carpets is not part of the fixed price, even if it is located inside soya)

    The shops located inside the hotels may have fixed prices, but don't consider them as a reference point. You'll pay about 50 Dinar (33 Euro) for a tube of suncream.

Midoun Off The Beaten Path

    Fadloune Mosque

    by barryg23 Updated Apr 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Fadloune Mosque is about 2km outside Midoun on the road to Houmt Souk. It's strange to see a mosque like this in the middle of nowhere with very few houses or a community around it. It did make for great pictures though. It's hard to beat sunset at an abandoned mosque in a quiet area with nobody around except us.
