The ultimate MTB experience – powered by Beachcomber

Mauritius is a small island set in the enticing tropical zone of the Southwest Indian Ocean. Its beautiful beaches and lagoons, lush interior, cosmopolitan and friendly population as well as its stunning landscapes seduce those visitors who sooner or later decide to return to the island.

Connected daily to Europe, Asia and Africa by several airlines, this modern and safe country boasts of a diversified economy based partly on tourism – for which it has built a worldwide reputation.

The Mauritius Tour Beachcomber (MTB) is a unique mountain bike stage race by the leading Mauritian hospitality group, Beachcomber, and its expert partners. It creates an unparalleled opportunity to get the best vibes of Mauritius while riding across wild and very varied terrain, from mountains, forests, sugar cane and tea fields to beaches and atop cliffs.

From 17 to 19 May 2018, expert mountain bikers and nature lovers alike will be able to enjoy a real sports challenge in rarely accessible spots of Mauritius, as well as an attractive accommodation offer in a 5-star beach resort.

Thanks to MTB, Beachcomber hotels is adding another challenge-and-fun packed event to its offering in sports and ecotourism. Our team has successfully organised the first four editions of the Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB) in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, which attracted leading global and regional champions in trail running. This expertise is the foundation for putting up a new edition of the UTRB in 2018 and to organize a second, adrenaline-packed edition of the MTB - with partners specialized in mountain biking for preparing the courses and for technical supervision.

Shandrani Beachcomber Resort & Spa, the best choice for accommodation, right in the heart of the MTB

The Shandrani Beachcomber Resort & Spa is the place for start and finish for almost all the stages of the MTB 2018 It will also host the briefing, the delivery of race numbers, the pre-race and post-race technical support, as well as shuttle service for the competitors. The terrain around, with tracks of stone, earth and sand, as well as the surrounding fields all represent an ideal ground for warm-ups and for the last training sessions before D-Day. And why not go there for beautiful biking outings with family and friends before or after the MTB?

The Shandrani Beachcomber is therefore the ideal choice for accommodation during the MTB and, more generally, for the action-packed holidays, as the resort offers a choice of outdoors activities, including a “pitch-and-putt” golf course, a sail club, a diving center as well as a kids club, as close to nature as you can get.

This elegant 5-star hotel is situated on a private and protected peninsula adjacent to a marine park and a few minutes away by boat from the natural sanctuary of the Ile Aux Aigrettes. The resort boasts pristine beaches that lead to lagoons of your choice – calm ones or a more spectacular creek.

Beachcomber has a special package for MTB participants and their relatives.
