Lake Malawi is nearly 600 kilometers long and 85 kilometers wide. Lake Malawi has stunning white sandy beaches with crystal clear water. The lake is home to a staggering display of colorful tropical fish and its beaches and resorts are a match for any on the Indian Ocean. The northern lakeshore merges well with the Nyika Plateau and Vwaza Marsh. Unlike the southern lakeshore, it is remote and feels 'untouched'.
