Introducing Likoma Island

Likoma and Chizumulu Islands are on the Mozambican side of Lake Malawi, but are part of Malawi. Blissful Likoma measures 17 sq km and is home to around 6000 people.

Likoma’s flat and sandy south is littered with baobabs, and offers a constant panoramic view of Mozambique’s wild coast only 40km away. The island's main drawcard is an abundance of pristine beaches and the activities revolving around them, but there’s a healthy dose of other activities, both cultural and physical, to fill several days here.
