The South East coast of Zanzibar, as the North East Coast, is one long sandy beach, with the villages Bwejuu, Paje and Jambiani, and was the first touristic destination in Zanzibar.

The village life is very interesting to watch, and there are the biggest sea-weed farms on the island, which the women tend at low tide, when they can walk out to them. You will also see sea weed drying in the sun, before it gets sold to the Chinese. This will be a very important income for women, and allow them to be independent.

Here one can walk or cycle along the beach for hours, go snorkeling with a dhow on the reef, swim at high tide, and explore the sand and rocks at low tide.
