Located on the island of Unguja, the quaint village of Paje lies on a shallow sandy lagoon, which attracts swarms of kitesurfing enthusiasts and marine life lovers. The mellow, soccer-loving village displays a traditional Swahili construction, with long dusty streets where friendly locals sell handmade crafts and homegrown produce. You can easily tour Paje on foot, and then take a bike or motorcycle to secluded beaches and remote natural spots. Most things to do in Paje revolve around its coast, including fishing trips, dolphin safaris, snorkeling, and exploring the coral reefs. Try the spicy Zanzibar cuisine in the town's small restaurants. Customize your holiday with our Tanzania trip maker to create an adventure that suits you.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Paje

Given Paje's location on a secluded lagoon, literally all of its accommodations lie along the shoreline. Here, choose from a good set of well-equipped four-star hotels offering peace and quiet in the meditative ocean ambience. If you want to experience the city bustle, book a room in one of the hotels in Zanzibar Town. It takes about 30-40 minutes to get to Paje from there, but the taxi fare or minibus ticket doesn't cost much. Alternatively, check out the numerous rental bungalows, including breakfast and your own private outdoor space.
