Enveloped by massive granite boulders covered in lush vegetation projecting out of the hills, Cape Maclear is a scenic fishing village located on the southern tip of the astounding Lake Malawi in Malawi. The extremely slow-paced atmosphere is endorsed by the serenity of the lush Lake Malawi National Parks’ woodlands humming with the heat of the sun and the azure waters of the lake lapping gently against the shores of the stunning beach.
The fishermen of Cape Maclear live in the centre of the small town which consists of only one road running in and out of town. The main road is lined with fruit and curio vendors, a selection of small diving shops, budget hostel lodgings, and several Malawian restaurants. Located on the northern side of the village is more upmarket accommodation offering live entertainment and bustling bars. The Gecko Lounge has a splendid veranda overlooking the breathtaking beach landscape; truly a delightful spot to chill in the evening and watch the moon beams and stars cast a mystical aura across the awesome lake.
Visit the missionary graves, hike the trails that lead from the graves to a viewing point providing unsurpassed views of the bay and village, stroll along the glorious beach or rent a kayak and explore the nearby islands. Go on a scuba diving excursion, snorkel the clear waters, or discover the dazzling display of colourful tropical fish in the protected marine waters of Lake Malawi National Park. The park is also home to abounding wild and birdlife. The astounding picturesque beauty of Cape Maclear will dazzle your visual senses and ensnare your heart with its unbelievable enchanting essence.
