Good soft white sand, clear panoramic views of the ocean, very good for beach activities and perfect for kite surfing, Paje is the best beach area Zanzibar has to offer! Low tide in the morning hours before noon is a concern for sea bathers as water is pushed back by almost a kilometre with no waves at all.

Great if you are into kite surfing. Definately an option for the budget traveller. The beach was very littered, would be nice to see something done about that

Crystal clear waters, amazing white sand beaches, perfect for swimming. Tides play a pivotal role in deciding when you want to swim. This also the heart of Kite Surfing due to the winds.

Paje beach is quite exceptional because even when the tide is low you have minimum 30/40cm without any sea urchin on the sand. You can walk, swim or practice kite surf or stand up paddling, fall into the water without any risk. Lots of restaurant and hotel on the sea front but the number of people even during high season...

Long-long stretch of beach. Perfect for walking or cycling. Water most inviting near the village where the kite surfing takes place and the boats are parked. But the whole beach has wonderful sand and no sea urchins immediately off-shore. Family friendly.

You may see many kite riders there, very windy. But quiet. This is good. At Nungwi they approach you all the time

Paje is one of the better areas on the island to go if you are interested in learning SCUBA or practicing kite surfing. It’s a great place to visit if you enjoy swimming in the ocean but also interacting with other young travelers. Good selection of bungalows, small restaurants, and beach bars as well as local craftmen shops.

This beach is amazing. White sandy beach that extends for like a mile when the tide is low. You can walk and explore the beach and see the sea weed harvested by the locals, search for live sea stars, crabs sea urchins etc or just lay in a shallow pool and get tanned. Once the tide comes in, it comes... More

When I saw this beach for the first time I thought "it's a heaven". I could not believe my eyes - amazing blue color of the ocean and finest sand that I have ever seen. Moreover there are regular tides so you can walk far into the ocean and admire plantations of algae.
