The small but vibrant village of Cape Maclear with its beautiful sandy beaches is one of the best travel destinations in Malawi. The sun kissed beaches offer visitors with attractions such as miles of soft sands, crystalline waters, scenic landscapes and stunning views of the ocean. Cape Maclear offers its visitors with endless outdoor recreational activities like hiking, snorkeling, boat cruises, swimming, diving, kayaking and much more.
The north end of the town serving as the final resting place for missionaries who died in the year 1875 is also worth visiting. Curio vendors selling hand-carved backgammon and mancala boards and Beach boys selling handicrafts and souvenirs are two of the major shopping destinations in Cape Maclear. Pete's Aqualand at Fat Monkeys Lodge is another important tourist attraction that offers exciting trips on the lake.
