Paje – a paradise for kite surfers and low budget travellers
A long sand beach, shallow waters and wind at almost any day of the year – this is a perfect spot for kite surfing! Top it up with wide selection of hotels of different price ranges, especially from the lower end of the spectrum.
But no need to be a kite surfer to fully enjoy the east coast of Zanzibar. There are plenty of things to do in and around Paje. It’s a great base when you want to explore the island and nearby waters. Kizimkazi, village known for dolphins living near by, is just a short drive away. Jambiani village is a walking distance away, Jozani Forest on the way when you drive to Paje, and historical caves all around.
Paje also has some great beach bars and nightlife, with live music several nights a week. A great spot if you are looking to meet new people and enjoy some cocktails.
Jambiani – an excellent choice for cultural experiences
Jambiani village has many good hotels, but best it’s known for it’s cultural experiences. Jambiani is also one of the main areas for seaweed farming. You can always find the women at the beach during low tide. Nowadays, there is also a soap factory that uses seaweed as the main ingredient.Check out our Jambiani village tour
