Clive Wedderburn January 30, 2019

What’s your definition of a paradise family getaway? If you’re thinking of powdery white sands, calm clear waters ideal for swimming, a wide range of exquisite cuisine, an exceptional choice of activities, plus indulgent spa treatments while your children have the time of their lives – a Beaches Resorts holiday in the Caribbean will suit your needs. Here are five reasons why they are perfect for family holidays...

1. The beaches

The Caribbean is home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches. Cresting the north shore of the Providenciales is Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa one of their finest resorts. Spanning 12 miles of unspoilt coastline, with serene turquoise waters and dazzling, palm-fringed white sands, there’s little wonder why Grace Bay was voted the World’s #1 Best Beach by TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards 2018. But that’s just one example of what Beaches Resorts has to offer.

At Beaches Negril Resort and Spa you and your family can unwind on a seven mile stretch of sand, choosing the perfect spot for sandcastles and sunbathing, or enjoying the shade amid their lush, tropical gardens. And Beaches Ocho Rios A Spa, Golf & Waterpark Resort is also situated on 22 acres of manicured gardens, adjoining an intimate white-sand beach

2. The watersports

With waters as calm and inviting as these, you cannot pass up the opportunity to dive in and explore the world beneath the waves. Beaches Caribbean resorts is one of the top ten diving operations worldwide and offers a comprehensive PADI-certified scuba-diving programme.

If you’re a certified diver, Sandals Resorts let you dive everyday* (except your departure day) as part of the Luxury Included® experience, however if you’re new to the undersea universe and have always dreamt of exploring the exotic underwater flora and fauna, the introductory resort program is perfect and includes all the instruction and equipment you need for dives up to 30 feet. You’ll discover a wealth of marine life here, from blue-tangs, hawksbill turtles and manta rays. Above the waves, there’s plenty of scope to get active and enjoy a host of exhilarating watersports, including kayaking and windsurfing.

3. Catering for the kids

Beaches Resorts is as entertaining and relaxing for children as it is a haven of tranquillity for adults. Not forgetting those breath-taking, palm-clad beaches, younger guests will also revel in the activities at the kids’ club. Here they’ll enjoy treasure hunts, face-painting, and puppetry, while teens can channel their energy on the water sports, tennis and beach volleyball. After hitting the arcade at the interactive Trench Town, they can immerse themselves in the latest gaming tech at the cutting-edge Xbox® Play Lounge.
