“Paje Beach”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

An absolute woth while trip. Yes it is a bit off the beaten track, but that is why it is such a beautiful and stunning beach and area. Please make an effort and visit this strech of the country. The surrounding village is friendly and easy going with mild mannered fishermen and the local restaurants and hotels are all stunning.

Perhaps better to take a taxi but beware of the outrages costs as a vehicle hire are often half the price. The local retaurants "The Rock and Upendo" are next to each other and makes for great food and excellent photo moments that will last a lifetime.

Vehicle Hire from Kibabu Car Hire. very affordable and excellent service in a country where poverty is adament amongst the population. Beware of the local police whom are all on the take for bribes, but after a long discussion and keeping it friendly expect to pay about 15 thousand shillings and be on your way.

Paje and the surrounds are a must on your Zanzibar to-do list.

“Beautiful sand”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

I loved the sand of the beach, which is the finest i ever exoerienced. and it keeps your feet cool. Amazing that instead of heating up, it cools down.

Even in the rainy season, storms move pretty fast and it's sunny and beautiful with white sands and greenish turquoise waters.
