Paje beach is about as close to a tropical island paradise as you can get. Sitting next to the Indian Ocean on the east coast of of Zanzibar it is a perfect place to chill out, laze on the beach, snorkel, fish or enjoy the local cuisine in one of several bars and restaurants close by. Zanzibar Stone Town is a world heritage city with winding alleys, bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses and is easily reached by car or local bus. <BR><BR>Other excursions include Jozani National Park, Spice Tours and Dolphin watching.

Thanks John, the cottage is a perfect hideaway for a couple wanting to chill and relax the private pool was great for rinsing off after the sea and it is a stone's throw away from the gorgeous beach. apart from some power and fresh water issues it was perfect and we will be returning for more of the same.

The garden abounds with flowers and plants...

We had a fantastic holiday here. The bungalow was great value for money and you have the place to your self including the lovely surrounding gardens and newly installed swimming pool. The beach is just a short walk away, but far enough to get away from any noisy beach bars, not that there are many anyway. We were looked after...

About the neighborhood
Paje has one of the best beaches in Zanzibar with palm lined, white powder sand and a tropical lagoon enclosed by a coral reef about a kilometre away. You can walk to the reef and you will see local spear fishermen hunting squid, octopus and brightly coloured reef fish. There are no sea urchins and no strong currents at high tide. The beach is gently sloping so it is perfect for swimming for up to twelve hours each day. There are some local hotels along the beach serving food, cocktails, beers, freshly squeezed juice etc all day long. The rare red colobus monkey as well as the tropical and mangrove forests canbe seen at Jozani National Park, only 10 minutes away. Google Paje and see what you find.
