Pamanzi, also known as Petite-Terre (literally "Little Land" in French), is an island of Mayotte, an overseas department and region of France, and is Mayotte's second largest island after Grande-Terre. 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.
