Our kitesurfing vacation in Zanzibar is a mix of extreme feeling and tranquillity at the same time. The trip includes 2 DOWNWIND along the spectacular beaches of Zanzibar. A trip to the lagoons and sandbanks. During or after the trip it is highly recommended to go to safari in Tanzania.
Paje Beach – Zanzibar’s capital of kite surfing, located on the eastern coast of Zanzibar Island, which consists of a number of islands off the coast of Tanzania. The white beaches, the coconut trees, the mesmerizing turquoise sea, create one of the most beautiful places in the world – a tropical paradise.
The spot in Paje is perfect for beginners and advanced alike. About a mile into the sea there is a reef, which produces a natural lagoon to the shoreline, with calm and flat water. The wind is steady and reaches the shore vertically (Side shore). Due to the tidal phenomenon in the Indian Ocean, the water level in the lagoon will be from knee to chest most of the time. Ideal for beginners. For wave riding, you can go out on the reef and enjoy the smooth wave at a height of 30 – 200 cm.
The foil and freestyle surfers will also enjoy excellent conditions and flat water in the lagoon. The average wind in the seasons is 12-25 knots, in January-February, and June-September. Paje is characterized by the peace and tranquillity of the African vibe during the day and lively parties during the night. While on kitesurfing vacation in Zanzibar, there are many restaurants along the coast and you can enjoy seafood at cheap prices.
Arriving to Stone Town, Zanzibar’s capital. It’s hour and a half drive to Paje, which is on the East Coast. We’ll settle into the luxurious Cristal Sea Resort which is located right on the beach. Dinner in Africana, a local pub with amazing atmosphere, we will meet the local beers and dishes.
