Ultimate Kids Guide To Beaches All Inclusive Family Resorts
Beaches all-inclusive family resorts give children extra attention with tailor-made fun just for them. We include supervised kids programs for five different age levels, and we never charge extra for giving kids the extra special excitement they crave. Beaches Kids Camp programs, for infants through age 12, are run by professionally trained child-care experts. Kids of all ages can enjoy the beach and Pirates Island water parks during the day. During the evening they can play games in the Xbox® Lounge or in Port Royal Arcade, Beaches exciting arcade hall. The youngest kids can even partake in activities with their favorite Sesame Street® characters. But what really sets our kid-friendly all-inclusive resorts apart is that our staff is so genuinely caring, your kids will feel like they are in the loving hands of a real family member who wants nothing more than to spoil them. And, with Beaches family vacations for kids, parents will know that they left their little ones in good, trusting hands.

Pirates Island Waterparks
Beaches Turks & Caicos - Make a splash with the whole family at Pirates Island Water Park! Zoom around enormous water slides (with options for big kids and little) or race each other to Splash Deck for the ultimate water party! For a slower pace, take in the beautiful views of our sparkling Turks & Caicos resort on everyone’s favorite - the undulating Lazy River. Budding breakers will leap at the chance to take on our Surf Simulator, a great way to test their skills and catch some waves before they chance a real riptide. With swim-up bars and food trucks to keep everyone satiated until supper, you’ll never want to leave. Get in on the action and discover one of the best all-inclusive water park resorts in the Caribbean at Beaches Turks & Caicos!
Beaches Ochos Rios - Your destiny awaits in an adventure unlike any other! Located to the left of the Caribbean Village, Pirate Island is the perfect place to let the imagination run free. Ocho Rios’ water park at Beaches is the second-largest park out of the three Beaches Resorts. Set over an impressive 27,000 square ft, Pirate Island is renowned for having the biggest slides of them all. It may be expansive, but Beaches Ocho Rios is perfectly proportioned for families and offers a unique boutique feel. The resort’s theme park-style addition gets the adrenaline pumping without straying too far from some Caribbean relaxation all parents desire.
Beaches Negril - Dive into the action at Beaches’ water park in Negril and enjoy flawless, panoramic sea views. Located on a soft and sandy, seven-mile beach, create the memories of a lifetime at Beaches all-inclusive resort in Negril. A mega playground set over 18,000 square ft, this beachfront water park boasts not one, but two giant slides, one of those being a turbo tube slide (not for the faint of heart!). Don’t worry though, there is plenty on offer for a gentler pace. For example, you can meander along the 650-foot lazy river (inflatables included) or have some fun on the splash deck.
