he expansive Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort is the largest all-inclusive in the country, and features an excellent Grace Bay Beach location, four village enclaves, a plethora of things to do, 6 swimming pools, and 19 restaurants. This resort is family-oriented, yet offers attractions and amenities for all ages.
Beaches Turks and Caicos is part of the Sandals group of hotels and all-inclusive resorts, which has locations throughout Jamaica and the Caribbean.
Activities and Things to Do
There’s a wonderful selection of activities and water sports for kids and adults alike.
Beaches employs certified lifeguards and professional and experienced water sports instructors and dive masters.
The Water Park
The country’s only water park, Pirate's Island, is found in the Beaches resort, and this complex features a large pirate ship with water cannons, slides, a 650-foot-long (200 m) river ride, a surf simulator, and a waterfall pool.
Water Sports Equipment
There’s a wide selection of non-powered water sports equipment, and guests are free to use this equipment as much as they’d like.
Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, a favorite for exploring our extensive wetlands, are easy and fun to use. Hobie Cat and tiny Laser Bug sailboats are fantastic (and unsinkable!) for those looking to learn to sail. There are also water trikes and windsurfing equipment to try.
The beautiful shore snorkeling site of the Bight Reef is also found a short walk down the beach.
For those who haven’t been out on the water much, the knowledgeable guides and instructors will get you out and about in no time.
Boat Excursions, Snorkeling Tours and Scuba Diving
Several boat excursions are also offered, including snorkeling cruises and catamaran sailboat trips to the exquisite Half Moon Bay, where the unique Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana can be seen.
Unlimited scuba dive trips are another perk with a stay at beaches. Beaches dive boats visit our spectacular reef sites off of Grace Bay, Northwest Point, West Caicos, and French Cay, which are some of the best wall dive sites in the tropical Atlantic.
Spas and Fitness
In addition to tennis, volleyball, basketball, and soccer facilities, there’s also a fitness center onsite.
The Red Lane Spa offers a full complement of services, including massages, facials, and skin treatments.
15 bars are located at the Beaches complex. In addition, the new theater show 'Voila' has been added, which features several different spectacles and performance pieces.
The 'Trench Town' games arcade provides some fun activities for children, and teens have their own 'Club Liquid'. Later in the evenings it transforms into a nightclub and lounge for adults.
Offsite Land Sports
Reservations can be made for two offsite land sports: golf and horseback riding. Keep in mind that these activities may incur extra cost.
The award-winning Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club is found in Grace Bay and offers a challenging 18-hole course through a beautiful terrain of ponds, limestone features and tropical dry forest. A round of golf also offers great birdwatching, as egrets, flamingos, herons and ducks congregate on the waterways.
Horseback riding by Provo Ponies is another available excursion. Rides take place on the spectacular Long Bay Beach, and this coast has exquisite, shallow and turquoise water, so you’ll be able to go wading as well as riding on the beach.
Rooms and Suites
As an expansive resort, there’s a tremendous selection of beachfront and inland rooms, suites and expansive penthouses to choose from.
Beaches is divided into four “villages”, each with a slightly different theme and atmosphere. There’s the Caribbean Village, Italian Village, Key West Village, and French Village.
As a family resort, there are room amenities that cater to kids and adults alike. Depending on the room, there may be a stocked bar or Xbox game console. Wi-Fi and air conditioning are standard in all rooms.
Extra Amenities and Service
Beaches offers several levels of service for stays, including concierge and butler classes of attention. The concierge level includes assistance with excursion bookings and restocking of the in-room bar. The butler class of room takes this a step further with personal service and better amenities.
In addition to the children’s attractions, gaming centers and kids camps, children's daycare during the day and after hours is available.
There’s also a miniature train service for transport around the extensive resort!
