    Midoun Restaurants

    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...

    Houmt Souk Things to Do

    My wife bought a hat from a young girl on a stall/shop in Houmt Souk, we were then invited to meet the father. Here we go I thought as we went through the archway, under the belief that she needed to get some change. As we went up the stairs to the workshop I decided that we had fallen for another tourist trap. The father was a nice guy, his third...

    Houmt Souk Things to Do

    For shopping, the small island capital of Houmt Souk is a delight. With its white buildings, intimate squares, cafe tables shaded by orange trees, and lanes packed with craft and antique shops (don’t miss Ben Ghorbal’s), it has the atmosphere of an Andalusian village.There are also good eating places like the fresh blue-and-white Restaurant de...

  • Where

    Ajim Off The Beaten Path

    We didn't stop at all in Ajim, as we had a long journey to Matmata ahead of us. What we saw of Ajim didn't look too interesting but if you're a Star Wars fan, you might be interested in seeing the bar where Luke Skywalker & Obi Wan meet Han Solo in the original Star Wars movie. According to my Rough Guide, you should look for the domed building...

  • From Ajim to Jorj

    Ajim Transportation

    Ferries from Ajim to Jorf are fairly frequent leaving every 30 minutes. The journey takes about 20 minutes and it's very good value at 800 millimes (0.8 of a Dinar) for a car. Foot passengers travel for free and also avoid the hassle of having to wait. We arrived at the port shortly at about 10.20 am hoping to get the 10.30 ferry. No such luck...

    Aghir Restaurants

    Not a restaurant but a cafe, and a very nice place to relax for a cafe au lait. Frequented by many Tunisians, as well as tourists, you can sit; in the sun, out of the sun or just lounge in a tent, or of course you can go inside. The staff are friendly, the coffee is nice and in the morning you can get a pastry with it.Pastries no longer available,...

  • Bus or Taxi

    Aghir Transportation

    Buses run from Houmt Souk to Ahgir and cost around 2TD p/p, a taxi will cost around 8TD. To reach Houmt Souk from Medenine/Matmata/etc you can take the louage, or an express bus from Gabes (2 - 2 1/2 hours), the louage takes a little less time but only saves about 10 mins. Both the bus and louage use the ferry at Ajim. Costs for the 2 hour ride;...

  • Mediterranean Vegetation

    Aghir Things to Do

    In Aghir I experienced a combination of a clear-blue sky, shining white houses, clean and well-kept towns, tree-covered countryside and warm, yet not too hot climate. During my stay I saw white sandy beaches, olive and date palm groves, and all the tourist facilities typical of a Mediterranean resort.
