The Beautiful Beaches of Sandals
Finding the perfect beach is always the goal for a Caribbean vacation. So we sent our Flightie Breanne to search out the best ones. She waxes poetic about the amazing beaches that Sandals Resorts has to offer, and what she liked best about each of these white sand beaches:
I was recently invited to be a part of an incredible trip; three days to experience three properties at Sandals Emerald Bay, Sandals Royal Bahamian, and Beaches Turks & Caicos.
There were so many things that I loved about this trip, but one thing in particular stood out about every single property we visited was the beaches. Sandals prides itself on the fact that they are on some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, and after this trip, I can say that I will never be one to disagree.
Sandals was kind enough to charter an Air Canada plane for the weekend and that is where my unforgettable experience started. Having a window seat looking down at islands surrounded by some of the most beautiful water that I have ever seen. I could not wait to get off of the plane and step foot on the beach!
We started the trip at Emerald Bay, on the island of Exuma. The beauty of this property is one that you have to see to even begin to understand; it is on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. After doing a resort tour we were brought to the beach… and my breath was taken away! I have never seen such crystal clear, blue water and sand that I can only describe as feeling like chalk powder.
After Emerald Bay we were flown to another island in the Bahamas, where Royal Bahamian is located. We got there in the evening and were brought to something that is truly unique, Sandals Cay, a private island just a short boat ride away from the resort. This isn’t something that they treated to just us agents, it is something that each and every client can take advantage of.
In the morning, I woke up and looked out my window to the best view that I have ever had. My room was overlooking the beach and the dock, the sun was rising in the horizon which only added to the serene beauty of it all.
I spent a lot of time that day exploring the resort, and the conclusion that I came to was that this resort has an incredibly romantic beach. This was confirmed when I discovered the beach at night; a picture perfect beach with front fire pits surrounded by a sofa built for two overlooking the water and being able to look up at a star-filled sky.
Beaches Turks and Caicos was our last stop. From the plane you can see the coral reef surrounding the island that offers superb snorkelling and scuba diving. This property is truly grand and one of a kind! Its structural beauty is matched only by the beach that stretches the entire length of the resort. The turquoise water makes you want to call Beaches Turks and Caicos home! This beach is something right out of a magazine; calm waters meeting sand that is incredibly white and fine.
Sandals Resorts are a unique product that offers the best of the best, and there is no better way to understand the calibre of its product unless you experience it for yourself.
