Home - Malawi - Nkhata Bay

Nkhata Bay is a Malawian port town on the western shore of Lake Malawi. Its striking harbor comprises sheltered bays with forested, rocky headlands. South of the peninsula that juts into the bay, Chikale Beach has clear waters with colorful cichlid fish. The town’s ferry port is a departure point for Likoma and Chizumulu islands, with their secluded beaches and trails, plus Likoma’s 1911 St. Peter’s Cathedral.
