Stunning Beach

A stunning beach which is really very beautiful. Also perfect for kite surfing if that is what you are into.

This beach is a Kitesurfer paradise and it is quite nice and spacious. The cons are that there are sea urchins and seaweed farms that pose a little threat to a kitesurfer but other than that what a great beach!!

We stopped for a short (one hour) swim in the gorgeous water on our way back to Stone Town from lunch. The beach was not pristine -- trash, glass, etc., but we went into the water, which was lovely. Lots of boats at anchor, but not many kite surfers on this day (no wind). That was good for us! Enjoyable,... More

This beach is built for kitesurfing! It is quite crowded with kites near Paje village, get down to Zanzibar Kite Paradise a little bit south if you can. Becouse of the tide witch is very significant in this side of the island it does not fit very well for families who just want to swim in the ocean. In some... More

Really long and beautiful beach, and Paje center is very popular with kite surfers and there can be hundreds of them on same days. I loved watching them. water is clear, and you can take a boat to snorkel at the reefs 500m from the beach.

Paje is a lovely beach, just a pity about all the broken glass you find there. It will be good if someone could ensure that this gets picked up and cleaned daily

Clean, pristine and beautiful beach. Be careful of the tides sometimes there is very little beach and sometimes there is lots and lots of beach. Lots of kitesurfers when the wind picks in the afternoon.

We stayed there for 6 days. I liked this beach very much. We stayed in the Hakuna Majiwe Hotel around 1 km south of the main part with all the bars and kite-surf schools. Next to out hotel there was literally no people around. You had the beach all for yourself. If you wanted to see people an get a... More

This is a long, beautiful stretch of white sand on Zanzibar's east coast! When the tide is low, there tends to be some seaweed on the beach but that shouldn't keep you from enjoying Paje. The white sand on the beach is stunning and this is a popular place to kite surf! The warm water makes a great place to... More
