Chintheche is a settlement in the Nkhata Bay District of the Northern Region of Malawi. It is on the shore of Lake Malawi and is approximately 40 kilometres south of Nkhata Bay. A concentration of small lodges, each having their own beaches, is found around Chintheche. These are some of the best beaches on the lake.
As well as the beautiful lakeshore, there is a site of historical interest at nearby Bandawe Mission. This was the location for the second attempt by Dr Robert Laws to establish a Livingstonia Mission.
