It’s all about the beach
If white sand and crystal clear water are your thing, look no further. The Caribbean offers beaches that are usually reserved for daydreams. For extra peace of mind, opt for a Beaches Resort as all of their beaches have been awarded the Earthcheck certification – perfect for those keen to look after the environment.
Most Caribbean resorts are located on calm, protected shorelines, perfect for novice little swimmers. For those not quite ready to face the open water, resorts such as Beaches Resorts feature special zero-entry pools for tots to play safely (as well as action-packed waterparks for older family members).
The Caribbean offers some of the most spectacular dive sites at both coral reefs and shipwrecks, all thriving with colourful marine life. Turks & Caicos, in particular, is considered to be one of the top diving destinations in the world, with protected natural reefs, crystal-clear waters and an amazing range of incredible undersea sights. For those keen to explore the underwater world,Beaches Resorts is the perfect option, offering up to two free dives a day for certified divers and a variety of courses and PADI qualifications so that even novice divers will be strapping on a scuba tank! For kids, the PADI Bubblemaker programme allows children (ages 8 years and up) gives them an opportunity to experience scuba diving, teaching them to breathe underwater, swim with find and perform underwater skills.
Warm days and pleasant nights
If, like most people, you’re seeking some sun for your holiday, the Caribbean rarely lets us down with its tropical climate and year round temperatures of around 29°C to 31°C. Sun-worshippers will be happy, but the constant sea breezes also mean that the heat won’t be too unbearable for little ones more used to British weather!
3/7 A nature lover’s extravaganza
Back to nature
If you love the thought of observing nature in its pure and undisturbed state, then the Caribbean is your very own wonderland. From bird watching to whale sightings, the Caribbean offers something for every nature enthusiast.
A whale of a time
In Turks & Caicos between the months of December and April, you stand an excellent chance of getting a glimpse, or perhaps even more, of a Humpback Whale as the entire Atlantic herd of 2,500 Humpback Whales annually migrates directly through the twin underwater plateaus of the nearby Turks Banks.
4/5 A touch of luxury
You want to see the world but not willing to give up those little luxuries? The Caribbean will give you a taste of the tropics with a touch of luxury and the practicalities that come with a great all inclusive.
Whether it’s a room for two or a more expansive enclave for your extended clan, at Beaches Resorts there’s a room or suite that’s just the right fit. You’ll find everything from luxurious rooms and cosy cottages in the garden, to sprawling family suites with separate rooms for the kids and even oceanfront views.
Some rooms even offer the services of a personal Butler, trained by the Guild of Professional English Butlers, to assist with all reservations, special requests, VIP check-in and weekly receptions – smashing!
Everyone craves a little variety whilst on holiday- no one wants to be eating at the same buffet restaurant three times a day for two weeks! Beaches Resorts therefore ensures that each resort offers an array of quality, gourmet food that the whole family will love.
Thanks to the Gourmet Discovery Dining Programme, there are 15 different types of international cuisine and up to 20 unique restaurants per resort – making sure you’ll be able to find that delectable dish you’ve been craving and even the fussiest eater will be satisfied. The best part? Everything is always unlimited, included and of course, delicious.
With food allergies now increasingly common, especially with children, Beaches Resorts has responded to guests’ needs by taking steps to manage food allergies at the three properties in Jamaica and Turks and Caicos. Food allergies and intolerances are managed on an individual basis and the process begins long before a guest steps on property. Food allergies are experienced individually, so the approach is too – tailored menus are planned and an on-property dining strategy to meet specific needs and alleviate any concerns.
Many resorts offer guests a chance to embrace all that the Caribbean has to offer with live shows, bands, beach parties and themed nights. As well as all of this, Beaches Resorts boasts an array of additional entertainment options for guests of all ages.
