Lake Malawi’s shores between Mangochi and Monkey Bay have long been a favoured holiday destination. There are many tourism enterprises catering for all markets along this 80km shoreline. The visitor chooses between a dozen lodges and hotels set on beaches of golden sand. Popular excursions include trips to Boadzulu, a rocky island off Club Makokola, Mumbo, Domwe and other smaller islands. These offer opportunities bird watching and water based sporting activities.
The biggest part of Lake Malawi National Park is located within the southern lake shore.
