    We had a relaxed half day at the Sunbird lakeside resort. An amazing place. Seaside experience, waves, pristine beach, tastefully laid out resort and amenities. A memorable experience indeed. Visit to Malawi is incomplete without a visit to the Malawi Lakeside.

    We visited during a mission trip with the church to Malawi. Nice surprise in the middle of the country. They seem to be a conference center, hotel, resort and have a bar, beach and nice private rooms.
