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. Other excursions include Jozani National Park, Spice Tours and Dolphin watching. The accommodation is a charming thatched bungalow in the beautiful garden of a private house. The owner's local sailing boat can be made available for snorkelling or fishing trips. Contact the owner for further details on the property. These are some panoramas of the bungalow. ...Paje beach is about as close to a tropical island paradise as you can get.

About the neighbourhood
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.
How to get there
Very easy to get to -Fly to Zanzibar direct or via Dar es Salaam best airlines are Emirates or KLM but several others. -From Dar es Salaam there are regular flights and sea ferries to Zanzibar. -Paje Village is about 40 minutes from Zanzibar Stone Town - lots of cars and buses.
