The good: One of the owners, Lisa, was super friendly. Shaded areas to pitch a tent. The bar. The restaurant. The beach here is beautiful. The not so good: Incredibly noisy, it is impossible to walk on the beach without being hassled, WiFi did not work at all, the people working reception were never friendly. All in all this was...

Wow, what a beautiful location! We spent two nights in a beach cabin with a stunning view of the island right across. Really relaxed atmosphere. Good, clean ablutions. Dive center right next door. In the morning we walked along the beach to the fishing village. And in the afternoon we made a dive at the island but unfortunately due to... More

We camped here for a night after finishing hiking the Luwawa Wilderness Trail. It is a beautiful spot by the shore of Lake Malawi, providing more pristine views and a cleaner beach than Cape MacClear to the south. The facilities were good, including shaded camping area, a good bar, plenty of areas to relax and provision of good food. There... More

We camped at Kande Beach although rooms are available. Nice Bar area and good food. Bathrooms are clean and we had fun sailing a Hobiecat. This is a spot mostly for overland touring groups. Good security and 220 volts available at camp sites. WiFi was poor.

Incredibly rude and unserviceminded staff! We were only visting for breakfast and when ordering we metioned to the staff that we were short of time and that we would appretiate if it was possible that the food could arrive as soon as possible. They even forced us to pay upfront for the breakfast. After roughly 30 minutes a waiter showed... More

This was the first stop at Lake Malawi, and despite arriving after dark it did not disappoint! Large camping area and a number of bungalows were available (from what I heard these weren't too clean). It was right on the beach! Ok showers/ablutions. Bar was great, with a few different places to sit. Beer choices were limited and if you... More

We stayed at Kande Beach resort recently and it was very enjoyable. Mostly because the restaurant has improved greatly, they now have a good choice of food on the menu and actually have the food available unlike a number of times in the past few years that I experienced a limited menu which made staying there frustrating. Now that their... More

Beautiful setting and relaxing sounds of the water coming from the lake. It's so big it looks like an ocean! Very pretty sandy beaches, they have hammocks to lay in to read a book or nap and the bar has great food. I would definitely go back! Just be aware that there are overland trucks that stop through and the... More

Kande Beach is a nice laid back place. The huge areal has everything you need. Stayed for two nights, the single rooms under the dorm, are rather small, dark and have no sockets. The beach is clean and has no annoying vendors wanting to sell you stuff. The bar is nice and well stocked and though I was the only... More

Kande beach campsite is a busy place that attracts several young folks who travel in groups. Consequently, it gets noisy at night. Despite this, the showers and bathrooms are very clean. The showers are excellent and better than some hotels we've stayed in. We initially planned to stay for two nights but due to a late night party decided to... More
