Nkhata Bay Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 42 photos
Nkhata Bay is one of the places which most people travelling in Malawi will visit. The town is located at a small bay with some nice beaches nearby. Nkhata Bay has a jetty where the “Ilala” and the “Songea” stop at.
In the past there was a massive security problem in Nkhata Bay. At the beginning of 2004 happened an incident, when during a big birthday party of some expats a gang, armed with AK 47s, assaulted the estate. Guests were beaten up; money and cars were stolen. There are some rumors, that the army was involved, because they way the guys were acting looked like a professional operation. Don’t let this make you not to come here. Nkhata Bay is a nice and interesting town
It’s a friendly place with some good accommodation, snorkelling and diving possibilities. About 2 km to the south is “Chikali Beach” a nice place to relax if you don’t want to stay in town.
- Pros:Nice beaches, good food
- Cons:not the savest place at night time
Its not really an item to buy while travelling but since HIV is killing so many people there are coffins shops... more travel advice
There are two ferries connecting Nkhata Bay with the rest of the counrty: The “Ilala” is coming twice a week.... more travel advice
