Big Blue Star
A private beach and a cliff-top restaurant.
From Blantyre/Lilongwe: Take Lake Road via Salima. From Tanzanian border: Take Mzuzu Road to Nkhata Bay. Follow sign at Nkhata Bay. Perched on the rocky shores of Lake Malawi, Big Blue Star is a good choice for feet-up, catnap days. The sound of lapping water is sure to set you purring. Soak up the vibe from a hammock, sunbathe on their private beach or explore - there’s a village to patrol, a cliff-top restaurant for famished felines and enough activities to fill all 9 lives.
