Monkey Bay

A small port town on the southern end of Lake Malawi, Monkey Bay is Malawi's best-known resort. Despite this, the facilities are minimal, with only a supermarket and outdoor market, and a single bank. Popular with tourists headed to Cape Maclear, Monkey Bay offers sandy beaches with some diving opportunities, and there are diving schools available (though their quality is not considered great). Other popular activities in Monkey Bay include kayaking and cruises to Cape Maclear and Liwonde National Park. Of course, the bay gets its name from the large monkey population in the area, and spotting them can be great fun.

Information & Facts

Language

English is the official language, but Chichewa is more commonly spoken.

Money

The official currency is the Malawi Kwacha (MWK), which is divided into 100 tambalas. Travellers cheques and foreign currencies are accepted by banks, authorised hotels and other institutions in the main town centres; bureaux de change are also available. The US dollar is the easiest currency to exchange. Credit cards are not widely accepted and ATMs are scarce and should not be relied upon. Exchanging currency on the black market is not recommended.
