Pamanzi, known as Petite-Terre (literally "Little Land") in French, is an island just off Mayotte, and is the second largest island after Mayotte itself. It was once the most important island, with Mayotte's only airport and the capital Dzaoudzi, until 1977 when Mamoudzou was chosen as the new capital. The communes of Dzaoudzi and Pamandzi are located on Pamanzi.
