It is a really lovely beach, but beware this is a kiting location and the beach is not deep. The usual beach people who wants to sell you stuff. You won't miss out if you don't visit Paje, but the beach is nice if you live very close by

Fantastic beach especially for those who like paradiving and kites. They have a beautiful restaurant with good fish and nice steaks. Also a cosy bar with hammocks.

If you're young and trendy (we're not!) then this is the place for you. Hundreds of kite surfers gather in the bars and restaurants along the beachfront. The beach itself is beautiful. If you prefer quieter beaches, nearly Jambiani or Bwejuu are better choices.

I did a kitesurfing course here which was a fantastic experience. There is a bid difference between the high and lowtide which makes it a little bit annoying for sunbathing.

Paje Beach has the classic turquoise blue waters, and pristine white sands. Excellent for swimming especially since the Bwejuu/Jambiani waters are rocky, and have smaller strips of clearer water. Popular spot for Kitesurfing too!

The beaches are white, clean and beautiful! The weather was just right and the people are extremely friendly. If you love seafood then you are in heaven! The food is fresh and the value for money is very good in local restaurants on Paje Beach. The diving spot was ok, I've snorkeled at better locations. The city is a bit... More

We visited in low season. Not every beachbar and company is open. It was not crowded at al, and I enjoyed it. Good sand, perfectly warm water. In this time of the year only a few kitsurfers. I can imagine the beach is too crowded in high season.

This is a great beach for wind surfers or kite surfers as the wind blows here! It's a large beach - you can walk forever. Quiet out of season - I would imagine it gets very busy during season.
