The water may not be the best on Zanzibar (Nungwi probably is regarding water) but Paje beach is the best place to hang out, with the best atmosphere! If you like places with less resorts and a more relaxed vibe, this is the place to be on Zanzibar. Every one is very friendly, the sand is beautiful and good swimming... More

Place is perfect for kites, but it is stressful to swim surrounded by them. Beginners have no control so it is not comfortable to watch if someone is heading strait to you.

Great beach but is getting overcrowded by Kite surfers. Not to many great places to stay or eat. Not for sunbathers since the beach is all Kites Kites Kites...

Stayed at a hotel near Paje beach for a week. The beach is amazing despite the tide which means you cannot swim the whole day. The only problem was the local boys who repeatedly grabbed me both in the water and on the beach. This happended to seveal other women too even if we only were on our private beach.... More

Nice place to kiteboard. Except for the high tide/lowtide business. Wind is not as strong, but with a bigger kite it's alright

This is a perfect Kite spot - and the best service you'll find at the Sun Sea Bar with kite.pl. Excellent service, very nice people, and low prices.

This long stretch of white sandy beach has overtly turned into a kite world, with all local activities such as fishing, and seaweed farming disappearing. If you like kite surfing this is your spot, but nothing else.
