Malawi: Beach

The warm heart of Africa

Malawi Beach

Malawi is a landlocked country meaning there is no coast. However, Lake Malawi has some of the most beautiful palm fringed beaches in the world. The lake covers a fifth of the country and stretches away like an inland tropical sea. It is filled with clear, warm water and dotted with rocky islands, where you can relax on the sand, swim, snorkel and scuba in the fresh water or participate in any number of water sports. The weather throughout the dry season (May-October) is beautiful with almost guaranteed sunshine and warm temperatures, making Malawi an ideal destination for an alternative beach holiday. The relaxed and gentle pace of life and the easygoing nature of Malawians is a fantastic atmosphere to get you in the mood for lazy days by the water.
