Cape Maclear | Diving in a Natural Aquarium
Located on the banks of the magnificent 600 kilometre long Lake Malawi, in the east of Malawi, Cape Maclear is known for its magnificent setting, secluded beaches and tranquil holiday atmosphere.
Luxury ResortsEco Camps and Cape Maclear lodges located on the beach maintain designated spaces in front of their establishments where sun loungers are arranged and the beaches are swept daily to ensure the visitors remain in the utmost comfort.
Lazy, Sun-filled DaysRoll out of bed and lazily wander across lawn and onto the beach or spend an entire day lazing about in a hammock soaking up the sun's rays while reading a good book, all this and more awaits when you visit the tranquil oasis of Cape Maclear. Meals consist of freshly caught seafood lovingly prepared by local fishermen served up in bustling resort restaurants for you to enjoy.
A World Heritage SitePart of the Lake Malawi National Park, Cape Maclear is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the world's first freshwater nature reserve, protecting hundreds of species of tropical fish. It is therefore not surprising that Cape Maclear and the nearby islands of Mumbo Island just 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) and Domwe Island; 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) away are popular diving sites.After a day spent snorkelling, kayaking or sunbathing, lazy afternoons can be whiled away enjoying a cocktail and watching the sunset from one of the local lounges or bars or enjoying a sunset cruise across the lake on a catamaran.
