Wamwai Beach Lodge
Ranked #6 of 26 Specialty Lodging in Salima
Reviewed April 25, 2011

Quaint little place situated right on the beach at Salima. The rooms arent great but if view, atmosphere and great service is what you're looking for, then this is the place for you. Everyone's very friendly and ready to provide any assistance necessary. The manager himself is a certified scuba diver but unfortunately his gear wasnt ok so we couldn't go. He did organize a snorkeling and hiking trip to the nearby island in the afternoon which was lots of fun. In the evening there was no electricity but I can safely say that was the most fun time of all! We got a bonfire going, there were live Chichewe musicians playing awesome tunes and everyone had a good time. Whenever I think of Wamwai, I'll remember the beautiful sky full of stars, the ocean like waves on the lake shore and the warm african night in the company of friendly travellers.

Sitting at the lovely Big Blue Star Backpackers in Nkhota ,I would like to recommend you Wamwai Beach lodge for the nice home feeling, clean rooms, great food but most of it for the nice and helpful manager and his staff.
Just 2 hours from Lilongwe you can enjoy the lodge situated directly on the beach of
Lake Nyassa, get a sun tan, reading a book, having a drink or a meal with a beautiful view.
Don't miss it
