Though Malawi may be landlocked, this country still boasts sandy beaches and snorkelling delights thanks to its impressive freshwater lake.
Stretching across the country, the beautiful lake boasts hundreds of fish species including vibrant cichlids. With such a wealth of marine life, this is a fantastic snorkelling and diving spot offering aquatic treasures and clear, current-free waters. Spend your days swimming and sailing, or simply soaking up the sun on the picturesque golden sands.
Scattering the shoreline are numerous fishing villages as well as luxury accommodations, yet the area still retains its local charm and unspoilt setting. Away from the water, visit the lush hills of the Lake Malawi National Park and look out for an array of birds, baboons and antelopes.
