Quiet place

So nice beach! Quiet place. The sellers will not bother you as long as you laying on a sunbed on the beach. Lots of kiting going on here.

Paje is only a few kilometres from Jambiani (where I was staying) - yet the few kilometres are worth it as it has a much nicer beach with a wider selection of activities and restaurants to choose from, one of the best beaches on Zanzibar

This beach is pristine, the water is crystal clear and snorkelling okay. The locals you meet along the beach are friendly and clearly welcome tourists. This beach is one that takes your breath away - long stretch of powderfine white sand and turquoise water. What more could you ask for? At low tide its perfect to put on your rock... More

White sandy beach. On medium tide perfect flat spot for kitesurfing. If you are into diving as well this is a great starting point. Kite schools and Padi.

Of the 3 beaches on the coast, paje is by far the most beautiful and best for swimming,AT HIGH TIDE ONLY, BUT you will have to compete with the scores of kite surfers

Stunning white sandy beach, littered with shells, that goes on and on.... And the sea is literally like a warm bath. Masai tribesmen gently selling their wares but really more interested in a chat. There are various places to eat and stay along this coastline, from the quite basic to the more luxurious. Our accommodation was three star and clean... 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.
