I have visited some delightful beaches but I have never stayed anywhere where there is such a long stretch of white sandy beach. I walked for an hour one way each day (3 miles) and could easily have continued for another 5 miles or so. Very safe.

I enjoyed walking on the beach and out towards the surf at low tide. I would not recommend coming here with young children other areas of the island eg up north or west is better.

Amazing beach with white sand and turquoise water. Plenty of colourful sea stars. You can opt to go snorkeling to the reef, speak with the friendly local people, join a tour, enjoy their fresh food, have a cold drink in a reggae bar or simply kite surfing in the calm water. Paradise for kite surfers. Very good conditions for beginners.... More

Fabulous beaches, clean crystal green blue emerald ocean, soft white powder beach. It's like a dream when you are there.

Paje is an exquisite beach that boast the craziest tide difference I have ever seen. It is ideal for kiting and the nights are very lively too. It is-in my opinion- a good alternative to a more luxurious Nungwi in the north of Zanzibar, where tides are not so extreme, but night life very limited

Paje beach is definitely a hot spot for all kite surfers. People who are looking for a relaxing beach holidays should look for a different beach. Paje is also an ideal place for scuba diving as Buccaneer Diving has it HQs there.

It was such a wonderful experience. Although, I do not kite surf myself - it was such a delight to see all the people on the beach having a time of their life. The beach has white powder sand, the water is almost an emerald green blue and warm. Nothing that I have been to compares to Paje. The only... More

The beach is just amaaaaaaazing! only minus is that it is getting really really busy with kites - so great for kite fanatics, but not if you are looking for a relaxed swim...

the sea here is outstanding and less subject to tides than others in the surrounding area. However the beach is very wide and the locals drive their motorbikes along it.. so the whole experience is ruined due to the stench of petrol fumes . KInd of like sunbathing on the high street
