Our secluded private beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Shielded on either side by rocks and cliffs, you can enjoy our golden sandy beach whilst soaking up the sun and listening to the waves gently lapping the shore.

Fancy a dip? Why not pop in for a swim and then dry off in the delightful Malawi sunshine? And if you want a drink then our beachside bar is right there, ready and waiting!


The Beachside Bar was lovingly handmade by the team here at Sangilo. Our bar is always stocked with cold beers, sodas and bottled water as well as wines and plenty of spirits! You can sit on one of our deck chairs looking out over the lake, or relax in a hammock with a drink in your hand.

Our bar is also stocked full of wonderfully hand carved woodwork from our own, homemade bar stools, to the tables and chairs you’ll sit on, and the fantastic, intricately designed bar itself! Here at Sangilo Sanctuary we know that it’s the personal touches that count.

Our guests always go away having loved the food here at Sangilo. Whether you’re after breakfast, lunch or dinner, we always have a menu that is sure to delight. Our chefs cook using locally sourced ingredients and plenty of herbs and vegetables grown in our very own garden!

Breakfast lovers can enjoy, among other things, our scrumptious homemade pancakes with syrup or honey; our full English breakfast and our very own bake beans that have been lovingly made by our staff. At lunch you can try a range of home made delights from sandwiches and soups to samosas, spring rolls and much more! And if you want to enjoy a candle lit dinner, looking out over Lake Malawi, then you can sample our amazing dinner menu. From fresh fish right out of the lake, to incredible pizzas and pasta dishes, we’re sure you’ll love what we have to offer!


Whilst we love the fact that so many people come to Sangilo to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life, we also appreciate that at times you need to stay in touch with the outside world. That’s why we have Wi-Fi on offer to our guests in case you need to contact home.
