This flawless beach extends for miles and is situated just south of Malawi’s Nkhata Bay. It is often deserted apart from a few local fishermen. Chintheche lies against the dramatic backdrop of the Viphya Mountains, on the remote northern shores of Lake Malawi on extensive lawns dotted with indigenous trees.
