+ Huge shallow water lagoon for beginners, intermediates, and freestylers
+ Beautiful KiteWorldWide Village in typical Djerbian Arabian style
+ Brand new KiteWorldWide kite station with the latest gear from Flysurfer and Core
+ Exclusive with KiteWorldWide
+ Holiday destination suited for single travelers, couples, and families

After we had to let go of some destinations last year with a heavy heart, we have been tirelessly searching for a new spot that meets the KiteWorldWide criteria. On our search, we jetted around the entire world almost once, until Maik from kitereisen.tv told us to have a look at Djerba, Tunisia.

We took his advice and so we got on a plane in Hamburg in September and got off in the absolute kitesurfing paradise in the middle of Tunisia. The small island Djerba is located in the southeast of Tunisia and is a real insider tip among kitesurfers. Many do not really have this nearby destination on their radars.

We found a lot of great spots and a great shallow water lagoon here. We liked it so much that we went there a few more times and then submitted a request for a spot to the Tunisian government. Finally, we even took the KITE BUDDY with us to test the spot and get his opinion about Djerba. Spoiler alert: He loved it! :)

Now that we finally have the contract for the kite spot, we can start to build a completely new kite center for you at our exclusive KiteWorldWide Spot and build a kite infrastructure, which doesn’t exist on Djerba yet.

True to our philosophy, we didn’t want to pick just any place to accommodate you at this great new spot, but we’ve found a wonderful hotel for you. The new KiteWorldWide Village Djerba is only 15 minutes away from the spot and features typically Djerbian furnished rooms, a junior suite, and spacious family apartments. Speaking of family: non-kiters can get their money’s worth in Djerba as well, thanks to various activities like stand up paddling, horse riding, shopping, and ATV tours into the desert.

Kitesurfing on Djerba

The Spot

The spot on Djerba is perfect for beginners due to its large shallow area.
On the large shallow water lagoon near El Kantara on the Roman embankment, there is enough space for beginners to train. Here, you can learn to kite quickly and safely thanks to the huge standing area. But intermediates and freestylers will also find plenty of space to practice their jumps or challenging maneuvers. Since the lagoon has a direct access to the Mediterranean Sea, it is hardly dependent on the tides and you can always get on the water without waiting for the tide.

A 400-meter wide access area at our spot guarantees that launching and landing kitesurfers always have enough space. This way, you can fully concentrate on kiting and achieve fast learning results.

The shallow water lagoon with its sandy ground (no stones, shells, corals or anything else) and more than 70% wind days per year is ideal for unforgettable kite sessions.

Season

Especially in spring, Djerba is extremely wind stable and therefore perfect for learning to kitesurf when the North Sea and the Baltic Sea do not allow any training due to the temperatures yet. The wind statistics of Djerba are not to be neglected for the rest of the year, either.

Quelle: https://www.windguru.cz/archive-stats.php?id_spot=359

The average wind yield between April and October is more than 90% per month if you can get used to a bigger kite.  We will have lots of kites from Flysurfer Kiteboarding on site, with which we can already cover wind ranges from 3 Bft., so that you may get on the water as often as possible.

KiteWorldWide Kitesurf Holiday Packages

Accommodation at the Kite Spot Djerba

Only about 15 minutes away from our lagoon, we found a beautiful, typical Djerbian hotel. Without further ado, we decided to lease the whole complex and to build our new KiteWorldWide Village Djerba there. Here, you can expect the feeling of the Arabian Nights in every corner of the spacious complex. In our Kite Village in Djerba, you will find 22 differently colored rooms, a pool, several chill-out corners and a shisha lounge for cozy nights. You also have your own yoga room and a spacious terrace at your disposal.

KiteWorldWide Village Djerba

Our new accommodation on Djerba offers a total of 22 rooms, each with a different color theme. The rooms are divided into four categories: comfortable rooms, a large junior suite, spacious family apartments and rooms in the kite house for all those who travel alone or with a group of friends.

Catering (half-board)

In Djerba, we offer you a delicious and wholesome half-board. As in our other destinations, we make sure that the ingredients are bought locally and fresh and that you get an insight into the Tunisian cuisine.

Breakfast will be typically Tunisian, predominantly sweet with fresh jam, cake, honey, pancakes, and freshly prepared eggs in every form. Fresh fruits and yogurt complete the kiter’s breakfast. If you don’t want to do without sausage or any other particular breakfast food that you’re unsure we’ll have in Djerba, you will have to bring it with you.

Dinner will be typically Tunisian as well and – in true KiteWorldWide fashion – eaten together. Our local cook will prepare fresh tajine with chicken or beef and couscous. But relaxed BBQs under the starry sky are on the agenda as well. As is common in North Africa, some of the meals are eaten sitting on comfortable floor cushions. But of course, there are also normal tables and chairs.

Rooms

Our comfortable rooms each feature a comfy, king-sized bed, a private bathroom, and a balcony. An air-conditioning system will ensure your beauty sleep stays uninterrupted.

Kite House

The Kite House in Djerba is something very special. The suites are on two floors and offer space for a total of four people. On the lower level, you will find the shared living room, the kitchen with a fridge, and a bathroom with a shower. On the upper floor, there are two bedrooms, each with a cozy double bed and a (slightly smaller) bathroom with a shower. The rooms in the Kite House are ideal for two friendly couples, families with older children or small groups of friends.

Family Apartments

Our spacious Family Apartments are ideal for all those who travel with small or older children or as a group. In addition to two separate bedrooms, you will find a very large living room, where everyone can enjoy a cozy snack after kiting. The Family Apartments also have a large, fully equipped kitchen with stove, fridge and microwave. A large bathroom ensures that there is no congestion in the morning. If required, a baby bed can be placed in the family apartments. The apartments also air conditioning, as well as large sun terraces with sun beds.

Junior/ Honeymoon Suite

In our Junior / Honeymoon Suite all couples get their money’s worth. It’s called “Honeymoon Suite” for a reason, after all. On about 60 square meters you will find a generous king-size, a large bathroom and a large closet for all your luggage. There is also a small kitchenette with fridge and a cozy living area with a TV and a reading corner. The suite also has air conditioning and a balcony with sea view.

Further activities in Djerba

Activities, that can be booked on location (additional cost)

Yoga

In our yoga room in the KiteWorldWide Village on Djerba, we offer exclusive yoga classes that are tailored to the needs of the muscles of kiters. Start the day energetic and relaxed or stretch your muscles after the session to counteract the soreness the next day.

Massages

If you just want to fully unwind, you can book one of our massages on site. Pure relaxation in our beautiful Kite Village.

Day trip to Houmt Souk

In order for you to see more of Djerba than just the kite spot and your hotel, we offer you a great trip to a local market in the old town of Houmt Souk. Here you will find everything from spices and traditional crafts to beautifully decorated tableware.

Stand Up Paddling

Stand-up paddling is the trend sport of recent years and offers an optimal full body workout for all ages. From Big Wave Surfing in Hawaii to the shallow waters of the Hamburg Alster, SUPs can now be found everywhere. The big lagoon, where our kite spot is located, offers you a great starting and ending point for a SUP tour.

Camel & Horseback Riding

For all horse lovers, there is the possibility to take a trip on the back of your favorite animal directly on the beach. If you would like to try out something new, you can also hop on one of the many good-natured camels and enjoy a leisurely ride through the area.

ATV Tours

If you’re looking for a little more adrenaline than a camel ride would give you, you can also go on an ATV tour in the surrounding area. You can speed through the deep sand in the nearby desert area and really feel pure freedom.

Shopping

Whether it’s clothes, decorative items in Arabic style, carpets, blankets or crockery you’re looking for – Tunisia has all these things at very reasonable prices. If you are good at bargaining, you can really get incredible deals here. And if you don’t feel like it, you won’t have to worry about being dragged into shops by persistent sellers.
