Dzaoudzi is a commune in the French overseas department 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 (Maore), the main island of Mayotte.

The Foreign Legion Detachment in Mayotte has been based in Dzaoudzi[2] since 1973.

A system of ferry barges operated by the Société des Transports Maritimes link Dzaoudzi to the island of Grande-Terre.

The international airport for Mayotte is located on Pamanzi Island in the neighboring commune of Pamandzi
