    Top Descriptions

    Paje is a long, windswept and seaweedy stretch of beach set beside a rambling village. It’s not half as attractive as in the north of , but at certain times of the year this village draws in the kitesurfers like few other places in the world. There’s not much to do beside the beach, and if you’re here to enjoy it without a kite and a board then this might not be the best place for you. – Daniel

    Top Tips

    With less to do and warmer water than at , it’s suprising that feels just as busy – especially with kitesurfers. The beachside scene here is certainly more low-key, but if you’re not planning on kitesurfing, then this might not be the best spot for you.
    If you’re here on a budget, consider staying at and cooking for yourself there. The restaurants in Paje aren’t cheap, but the local shops (such as ) certainly are!
    You can catch dala-dalas to Paje from in about 90 minutes for TZS2,000. TZS45,000 would just about get you a taxi.
