IntroductionThese sandy islands, covered in baobab and mango trees, are out-of-the-way places to relax and enjoy Lake Malawi. Likoma Island is home to an impressive Anglican cathedral built in 1903 to counter the witchcraft that missionaries found when they arrived there. Chizimulu Island is arguably the best snorkeling spot in the country. Both islands have wonderfully deserted beaches. Most travelers get to the island on a ferry that travels up and down the lake and stops at Monkey Bay on the mainland. Accommodations are limited on the islands, but on Likoma there's a dive school and a luxury lodge built entirely by hand using local materials. 150 mi/240 km northeast of Lilongwe.
