Chiponde Beach Resort, Likoma Island

Carla Lemmis of Chiponde Beach Resort writes:

31 years ago, my husband Ian Lemmis backpacked here under one of the baobab trees that surround the Malipenga. He never forgot the beauty of this beach and later convinced me to sell everything and come back and make a difference in Chiponde Village. 

Chiponde Beach Resort is open to everyone and offers affordable prices to all. We hold live music events, local as well as performers from the mainland. 

We became a honeymoon destination in Malawi along with groups, families, and single travelers. 

Our accommodations are:

Campana (sleeps 2) $10 per night 

Single chalets $50 a night for up to 2 guest including breakfast.

Our signature Rooftop Deck Chalets are $75 a night where you bedroom and bathroom is downstairs and upstairs under thatched roof is your own private lounge and eating areas. 

All chalets are either lakefront or have spectacular views of Lake Malawi and Mozambique beautiful landscape 3km across the lake, not to mention we have planted almost 3,000 trees, plants and flowers on the resort to enjoy as well.

Plus the Malipenga Bar at Chiponde Beach Resort offers the most affordable food and drinks of all lodges on the island- it’s the place to be on Likoma!!
