LIKOMA ISLAND MALAWI
Although in Mozambican waters, Likoma Island is Malawian territory and is the larger of the
two inhabited islands of Lake Malawi, measuring seventeen square kilometres across. The
island boasts some lovely beaches, friendly locals, and predominantly flat terrain with a
baobab dotted southern side. It is home to the headquarters of the University Mission to
Central Africa, Livingstone’s mission, and hence it remained British territory when the Lake
was divided politically after World War Two. The island is famous for the large, beautiful St.
Peter's Cathedral, featuring numerous stained glass windows and intricate soapstone
details. Visitors can relax on pristine beaches, snorkel and dive in the crystal-clear waters,
and enjoy a variety of watersports.
