Zanzibar is well known as a top notch destination for tourists all around the world. Paje, located on the south east coast of the island is home to a number of water sports activities, historical and cultural activities whilst also boasting kilometers of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
Here are five of our favourite things to do in Paje:
Visit the beach:
To call the scenery of the paje beaches heavenly is an understatement. The white of the sands and the clear blueness of the waters beckon to you. We love to take an afternoon off, carry a blanket, an umbrella, some drinks and the company of friends. The sight of the ocean, the various activities happening on the beach and the kitesurfers kites dressing the blue skies is just a sight not to miss.
If you know anything about the culture of Zanzibar, you will know that spices are a big part of their history. Immerse yourself in the culture of Zanzibar by joining in the spice tours, taste, smell and enjoy the lovely colors of the spices.
Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park:
The only national park in Zanzibar, Jozani National Park boasts a big population of Red Colobus Monkeys. Additionally, this national park also hosts over 40 species of birds and 50 species of butterflies. If you are a lover of forests and all the exciting creatures to be found in there, then a trip to Jozani Park is definitely one worth taking!
Did we mention that the reefs along the Paje beaches are picturesque? If you are curious about the underwater world and the life it hosts then snorkeling is definitely an activity you want to partake in!
We wouldn't be proper fans of Paje if we did not mention kitesurfing. Paje is well known as a kitesurfer's dream destination. Whether you are a beginner, or well experienced kitesurfer, you will definitely have the time of your life on the shallow, clear blue waters of Paje.
