Lake Malawi is the third largest lake on the African continent and was the first freshwater lake to be listed as a World Heritage Site. A fifth of the country, to the north and south, is a beach with white sand beaches like the sea. There are many beaches where palm trees grow naturally, and you can enjoy the landscape that does not look like a lake. Many fish live there too, and snorkeling, kayaking, and water sports are popular.
