Aquanuts divers is located next to Kande Beach Resort. I write this review 6 months after having attended Aquanuts dive center, so I hope the reader understands this is not a rant, but rather a well reasoned warning. Half a year later, my experiences at Aquanuts were so horrible, I feel it is necessary to say something; to ensure you...

Yes please! Definitely avoid our lodge if your put off by this “rather well reasoned warning”. Feel free to come if you have read and understood this rant, written by someone who never actually stayed at kande but rather slept out on the beach and used the dive school kitchen, bathroom and security in order to save money. I realise...

Stayed here with my overland camping tour for 2 nights and loved it. The camping grounds were nice and tents were kept cool in the area which helped with sleeping. The shared facilities were clean and there was nice hot showers. The beach is really nice and the water for lake Malawi is really clean. Sunrise and sunsets were both...

We came with an overland tour, and would have loved to have more than 1 day here. The beach is lovely, the owners were very friendly, and the bar was good. It was great to have some nice couches and shady areas to relax and use the wifi. We were there on Christmas day, so it was extremely busy with...

This is a nice place, small houses at the beach with electrisity and a fan. You have to buy acess to Internett. Shared bathroom and showers, but the facilities are clean and nice. They also have a nice bar. They can arrange boat-trip to kande Island if you are interested in this kind of activity, or snorkeling. I also saw...

A well-established travellers favourite on the backpacker, touring and overland trails, Kande Beach never fails to disappoint. We camped for two nights and loved it. The camp area is in a shady spot and the toilets and warm showers are clean. The bar area is lovely with a wide variety of seating and a relaxed vibe, whilst the menu is...

I stayed in a beach chalet which was pretty nice. Big, and with a terrace overlooking the beach. The food and bar area were good, and the staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, as I got ready for bed on my first night, I rolled down the cane window blind to find a squashed lizard inside it, being eaten by maggots....

We were on an overland camping trip and stayed here for 2 days. I absolutely loved the location right on the water. The campsite was fantastic and shades and the staff were amazing. All in all, really enjoyed our time here and playing on the beach volleyball!

Go for the beach side huts, for amazing views. Reasonable value for the location. The communal areas are nice and there are plenty of local beers at the bar. They do a local coffee as well for a good price.
