Great view, nice walk with the water and the sand. Two side of this beautiful place come together to show something unique. Visited more than 10 years ago, still remember most of it.

What an experience! Stone deserts are a very impressive type of landscape, and Tamerza is quite high in this respect as well. If you can spare the time, go for it!

I remember visiting Tamerza canyon with my parents when I was younger and being amazed at the beauty of the untouched nature. A bit out of the way but a must do.

This was so beautiful. We walked up the mountain and through the canyon and around all the palm trees. The waterfalls are beautiful. Wear some good shoes and bring water. It is a good hike. But well worth the views you will see. It's a must di while you are in Tunisia.

Tamerza was a nice oasis, worth seeing if you're in the area. It's more or less between Chebika and Mides, and an easy day trip from Tozeur. Personally, I liked Chebika and Mides better, and if you are pressed for time, I would go to Chebika, which is a beautiful mountain oasis, and Mides, which is an abandoned cliffside village... More
