TAMERZA
The last waterfall
Tamerza, Tunisia


Tamerza, Tunisia


The last waterfall of Tamerza stands a few kilometres out of town, and can both be explored deep down in its canyon, or enjoyed from a platform directly above it on the hill. Nearby, tourist stalls and cafes have been put up. You may also camp here.
I have only visited in summer, when the waterfall is thin and unimpressive. According to locals I asked, winter brings far more water, and the basins below fill up and become nice places to go swimming.
