Paje on the southeast coast and Kendwa on the northeastern side of the island have always been, in our opinion, the two most beautiful beaches of Zanzibar.

Unlike Paje, Kendwa has developed much more rapidly and most of its small guest-houses have ended up giving way to large, mostly Italian, resorts however even if more crowded than once this non tidal, fine white sand stretch of beach continues to be particularly nice attracting now more wealthy visitors now than in the past.

The few remaining guest houses are still as simple and informal as once hence suitable to a younger clientele ready to accept a certain unreliability of service.
