A fantastic beach - warm water; pale, fine sand; great kitesurfing at high and low tide; and a few really relaxed, low-intensity, chilled bars, restaurants, and hotels/b&bs along the beach. This is kite-surfing heaven.

Stayed at Kitete beach bungalows and had Hamid as the hotel manager. I can't say enough good things about Kitete beach and Hamid's service. Plenty of places to eat, great white sand beach, tide rolls out a quarter mile at lowest tides. I went to kite surf, definitely bring 10-16 meter kites. Windiest months are Jan and Feb and it was consistently 14m sessions in the evenings. The wind is thermal so primarily morning and evening sessions. I recommend a taxi to get there. Contact him in advance you will save 15 dollars each way. His email is gabriel-04@live.com phone is +255-772-944919 He also does very competitive tours around the island ie stonetown and spice tours. All in all had a great time!

loved the sand and cleanlinee. windy enough for water sports and calm enough for a spot of swimming/snorkelling.

The tide goes out kilometers - so can wade around very far away from the land - AMAZING

A great holiday beach with clean water, of course, but most remarkable for its amazingly friendly people. Many great conversations with the locals at the Jambo shack. The Paje children are especially friendly, they will jog with you on your morning run, ask for swimming lessons, and get involved in brilliant creative games with your kids, beach art and more. Inland, in the village, there are more super people, so full of good ideas and great skills. Lovely community and thanks to all for sharing !
