Kisiwa on the Beach is a secluded luxury resort that lies on the white sandy beaches near the charming village of Paje on the south-east coast of Zanzibar.
Sheltered by a long barrier reef, Paje is well known for its amazing watersports, and people from all over the world travel to this idyllic destination to kitesurf. The coral reefs, rocks and ship wrecks in the warm Indian Ocean offer ideal conditions for tropical marine life, making it also fantastic for snorkelling and scuba diving in Zanzibar. The extreme low tides expose small lagoons filled with starfish, sea urchins and small minnows, while the high tide offers great conditions for surfing and kayaking.
Paje Beach is the perfect place to get away from the busier north and east coast of Zanzibar island. And if you head inland from the beach resort, rare red colobus monkeys can be seen along the trail to the coral caves in the Kiwengwa-Pongwe Forest, which is located 20km from Stone Town. Alternatively you can also visit the nearby Seaweed Farming Centre and discover how it benefits the local community, or walk through the village of Paje itself to gain an insight into how a local Zanzibari family lives.
Guests at Kisiwa on the Beach are greeted with welcoming Swahili smiles, and they can relax throughout their holiday in Zanzibar to the joyful echoes of ‘Jambo’. So prepare to put your feet up and marvel at the romantic sunsets that glow orange and red across the African sky.
