Though you;ll have to deal with Malawi's endlessly shady transport operators trying to shake you down to get up the long dirt road from Monkey Bay, this backpacker spot on the southern shores of Lake Malawi is a treat. With great snorkeling and diving, significant natural beauty, good guesthouses and parties, and activities like kayaking on offer, it's an easy place to crash out and spend a week or more. You'll get infected with bilharzia swimming in the water here, but don't worry: there's a pill for that.
