Dzaoudzi is a commune in the French overseas collectivity of Mayotte, in the Indian Ocean. The commune of Dzaoudzi (sometimes called Dzaoudzi-Labattoir), made up of the twin towns of Dzaoudzi and Labattoir, is located on the small island of Petite-Terre (or Pamanzi). It was previously the capital of Mayotte, but the capital was relocated in 1977 to Mamoudzou, on the island of Grande-Terre (Mahoré), the main island of Mayotte.


The town of Dzaoudzi is located on a rocky outcropping which was once a separate islet. It is now linked to Pamanzi Island and the rest of Dzaoudzi Commune by the "Boulevard des Crabes", a road constructed atop an artificial dike.


The commune is home to 15,339 people (July 2007), the majority of which live in the town of Labattoir.
