A beautiful beach (I mean really, all beaches on Zanzibar are) with a lot going on around it. It's cool to go to, but if you're looking to go swimming or just laying on the beach, it isn't the best. The area and water is just super crowded with kite surfers and boats for things like diving. If you're looking... More

I think this is one of the most beautiful beaches i have ever been to. It is not crowdy, the water is very clean, the beach is long enouh. It is very interesting to watch how every day the ocean disappears because of the tides. I recommend to everybody to visit this beach

Paje beach is nice, but after seeing some other places on the island, it's definitely not the best. The tide is very low from late morning to evening and you can't really swim. There are many people trying to sell you everything from snorkeling trips to elephant statues, and it can get very annoying when you just want to be... More

The beach is excellent to walk along especially when the tide goes out and you can adventure onto all the sand-bars. Some locals trying to sell things but they were really friendly and easily took a polite no for an answer. We love to swim but the ocean is covered with kite surfers and when the tide comes in they... More

Please be aware of the tidal fluctuations....if people are not briefed, they can get very disappointed if they go when the tide is out! There are parts of the beach that are now quite congested, so opt for an area where it's still 'natural'.

The beach itself is okay. Long, flat, plenty of room. You can easily jog/run on it if you want. No one maintains it so there is a bit of seaweed/kelp. It is clean from trash though. There are no beach chairs out there...some of the hotels have a few right next to their property but you can only use them... More

The beach was very clean and the water was beautiful! The only thing would be people walking up to you trying to sell things to you. They mean well and only want some business but after the third time it gets a little annoying.

If you are into kite surfing, or you just want to sit and watch, this is a great beach. I counted over 70 kites whizzing back and forth as I sat and watched and lots more people preparing to go on the beautiful endless beach. For obvious reasons, not much opportunity to swim!
