Paje Beach.

Paje is well known for it’s beautiful beaches, amazing diving & snorkeling and water sports. The warm Indian Ocean offers ideal conditions for tropical marine life along the coral reefs, rocks and ship wrecks, making it perfect for diving and snorkeling. The extreme low tides expose small lagoons filled with star fish, sea urchins and small minnows, while the high tide offers a great open platform for surfing, kayaking and many other water sports. People from all over the world travel to this idyllic destination to kite surf.

Sheltered by a long barrier reef, the East Coast of Zanzibar consists of gently sloping white sandy beaches, melting away into the warm Indian Ocean. Inland, rare red Colobus monkeys can be seen on the trail to the coral caves of the Kiwengwa-Pongwe Forest, 20 km from Stone Town.
Paje Beach is the perfect place to get away from the busier north and East Coast of the island.
Nearby points of interest include Jambiani Beach, Jozani Forest Reserve, Kwale Island , Kizimkazi Beach and Paje Village. A walk through the village will give you insights into how a local family lives.
