This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences.

Paje, Tanzania, is a fishing village on the east coast of Zanzibar that is building a reputation as good beach stop for independent tourists. It is fifty kilometers east of Stone Town and at the crossroads of the east coast road that turns south, toward Jambiani and Makanduchi, and north to Bwejuu and Pingwe on the beautiful Michamvi Peninsula. Travel is cheap and easy on the local minibuses (dalla-dallas). The trip from Stone Town takes you past the Jozani forest, which is well worth a couple of hours on the walking trails. You might spot red colobus and Syke's monkeys, duikers, and bush babies.

Paje has long left its fishing village tranquillity behind, as more and more tourists arrive to enjoy its beautiful beach. It's now a prime spot for backpackers looking for a bit of a party scene. Further up the coast toward the tip of the Michamvi Peninsula, visitors will find much more peaceful spots. Kite-surfing is a big draw here, and there are a couple of places in Paje that will arrange this. December to June is kite-surfing season. There's also a dive center with snorkeling trips, too.

One of the focal points for travelers in Paje is Mr. Kahawa's coffee shop, right on the beach. Not only can you get snacks and drinks here, but it's also an outlet for the Jenga organization that gives an opportunity for local people to make and sell handicrafts. There is also a Seaweed Centre. The local villagers have long harvested seaweed here, and the centre now gives them the opportunity to sell their organic perfumes and soaps. Visitors can also take a tour of their workshops.

Accommodation in Paje is mostly geared toward backpackers, so you'll find plenty of Paje, Tanzania hostel dorm beds. Paje, Tanzania hostels are sociable places where backpackers from different countries, each with their own route, can meet and exchange ideas over a drink or two. The hostels in Paje, Tanzania, also help with arranging activities and onward travel. If you need to visit Stone Town, it's an easy minibus trip in under an hour. During kite-surfing season, accommodation is at a premium, so book ahead.
