Paje is the perfect place for backpackers and kitesurfers. Because of the continuous wind, there are good conditions for kitesurfing. Paje attracts surfers from all over the world.
There are many schools where you can choose between different courses or simply rent the kite equipment. Paje is situated in the south-east of Unguja. The east coast is very tide-dependent, so the water is withdrawn very far at low tide and becomes relatively shallow. At high tide, the kitesurfer will immediately go into the water.
That is why it is only suitable for bathing at low tide as well as at high tide. We could not find sea urchins, but jellyfish.
You will find on the beach some restaurants and cafes, where you can make yourself at home during the day and celebrate in the evening.
We arrived at the Sunny House of Marta. The accommodation is not directly on the beach, but it is less than a 3 minute walk. Since it is a house for self catering with communal kitchen, we have for the converted 4.00 € in the restaurant of the Kinazi Upepo Beach Hotel, which is located directly on the beach. For this price we got fresh fruit, a freshly squeezed juice, tea or coffee, scrambled eggs and pancakes with syrup.
Here you can go well and cheap lunch and / or dinner. Delicatessen can be enjoyed at the Ocean Blue Restaurant. The food is slightly more expensive but still reasonably priced. During the day you can relax in the sunbathing bar and treat yourself to a large and delicious milkshake. If you prefer it to people, but still want to make a sunbath comfortable, we recommend the bar B4.
