It would be a crime to waste the abundance of beautiful ocean surrounding the Shandrani Beachcomber - the resort gives guests access to three private beaches, and an array of watersports to enjoy. Try your hand at wakeboarding, sailing, snorkelling and diving in the warm water, which is teaming with sea life.

The Shandrani Beachcomber is lucky to have its own onsite Water Skiing Academy, with high-quality equipment from recognised leading brands. Enjoy one-to-one classes with our helpful instructors and take to the water for some thrills and spills.

For some travellers, the real adventure lies in trying different cuisines and dishes. At the Shandrani Beachcomber there are six different restaurants to choose from, with options such as the Italian trattoria Ponte Vecchio, or the Thai restaurant, Teak Elephant.

With 18 treatment rooms the spa facilities at the Shandrani Beachcomber are truly exceptional; select a treatment and lose yourself in clouds of purifying steam, or let our therapists wring out any lingering tension you have brought with you.

Not only does the Shandrani Beachcomber have a 50-hectare pitch and putt golf course onsite, but it also grants its guests privileged access to the Avalon Golf Estate, an 18-hole par 72 golf course.
