I recently had the amazing opportunity to travel to the Beaches all-inclusive resort at Turks and Caicos thanks to Social Media on the Sand. It was a wonderful experience filled with great food, incredible adventures and quality family time I was craving.
Beaches has created a one-of-a-kind vacation that we’ll be talking about for years to come. It was one of the most relaxing trips we have ever taken. And I loved that it was truly all-inclusive.
I’m excited to share the details of our trip with you!
It’s truly paradise — an escape from the daily hustle and bustle our family deals with every day.
This resort leaves nothing to chance – each detail is meticulously cared for, all to create an amazing experience for your family. You’ll love the 45,000 square-foot water park with five themed villages and a 12-mile beach surrounded by clear turquoise water.
There is something for everyone in the family, making it an unforgettable trip for your entire gang!
Before our trip, I’d heard that it had been voted the world’s #1 best beach on TripAdvisor — after experiencing the white sand beaches and the clear, turquoise waters (not to mention jerk shack right on the beach!), it was easy to see why Turks and Caicos is a favorite destination.
Each village has a theme:
- Caribbean & Seaside both offer a garden oasis with incredible views.
- Italian offers old world charm with a tropical twist.
- Key West offers casual elegance with laid back style.
- The French offer a Caribbean paradise with a French accent.
There are a plethora of activities to choose from, no matter what you’re in the mood for. I was blown away by all the options for activities for us to enjoy on both land and water.
The resort houses six pools with three swim-up bars. They also have the largest Jacuzzis in the Caribbean! There is also the Pirates Island Waterpark. Sam absolutely loved this kids’ area. Every day waited for the surf simulator to open and made sure he went on every slide at least 3 times.
If you’re traveling with your family, some of the family perks that I loved included the dedicated toddler pool, Xbox Play Lounge (great for getting out of the hot sun), supervised kids camps for kids of any age and the large family suites.
Beaches also offer a comprehensive scuba diving program — it’s a top scuba diving destination! Even if you’ve never dived before, you’ll have all the equipment and instruction you need for dives up to 40 feet. I love that it’s all-inclusive, too!
There are a lot more water activity ideas as well since Beaches offers the largest water sports option in the Caribbean. They boast a fleet of over 270 specialty boats as well as paddle boards, wakeboarding, kayaking and more. Each sport has top-of-the-line equipment and professional instruction.
If you’re looking for fun on the land, they have lots of options for that as well! Land activities include golf, croquet, basketball, horseshoes, tennis and a full fitness center. There is also a pool, beach volleyball, lawn chess and more!
And of course, I can’t skip talking about the incredible food we enjoyed! There are 21 specialty restaurants to choose from — each more delicious than the last. We loved grabbing an easy breakfast from the buffet at Giuseppe’s, a quick hot dog or chicken burger (<- so good) from Bobby’s Dees, the 50s diner.
For dinners with Sam, the Italian restaurant, Marios, had a H-U-G-E salad bar and fantastic menu. Kimonos were SO MUCH FUN. My throat was sore from singing and Sam still talks about getting to cook.
Without Sam, we went to Bayside Restaurant and ate a romantic dinner with the most gorgeous beach view I have ever experienced. Mike also got a great cup of coffee every morning for us at Cafe de Paris.
