Beautiful beach, but a bit windy

Gorgeous beach: white sand and clear turquoise water. Lots of windsurfers which is fun to watch. We stayed at Teddy's place for 4 nights (we only intended on staying 2 but liked... read more

Gorgeous beach: white sand and clear turquoise water. Lots of windsurfers which is fun to watch. We stayed at Teddy's place for 4 nights (we only intended on staying 2 but liked it so much!) and ate at The Ocean restaurant which is fab. The only negative I can think of is the windiness of the beach - ideal for... More

I haven't seen such a big milky white sand beach spreading over several kms!! You will sometimes come across Masai peeps who are trying to sell some artifacts, and they are super annoying for us... So ignore them and find them as soon as possible and hide somewhere, hahaha. And please go there during high-tide time!! because it is a... More

Though full of hustling touts, this beach is amazing and in my experience, the most beautiful of all Zanzibar beaches.

Beautiful side of the island, the tide does go in and out so not the best beach to visit for swimming. Wind surfers paradise though, so much to walk along the beach and see. Many restaurants along with pools you can swim in, eat at the restaurants and great nightlife!

Something you can't see on many places over the word. Amazing white sand like butter and beautiful green see.

at least in April (off season) walks along the beach were really peaceful and unhassled. Hardly anyone else on the beach. Low tide goes far out so great for walking on the sandy bottom even out towards the reef. A village north of Ndame (not sure of name) passes its waste into the sea - be careful when passing it...

white sand, green/blue water, magical moon-rise nightly - why would you not choose Paje? Tide goes out a long way daily - walking on the sandbar is fun. You have to take a boat to snorkel - not much snorkeling right off Paje - you have to go north a bit. Windy - but not excessively - if you like... More

Silky white sand and a turquoise lagoon - picture perfect! Watching the kitesurfers practise their moves when the wind picks up and ending up at one of the south east coast beach parties (there's one every night somewhere!), eating fresh seafood and fruit juices. The hotels on the beach are boutique and open to the public, so there are no... More
