The first time I went to Turks and Caicos, more than twenty years ago, I fell in love with the white sand beaches, turquoise waters and superb scuba diving. I was thrilled to be invited to participate in the 2020 PADI Dive-in LIV+ Event at Beaches Turks and Caicos. It is one of their annual Luxury Included Vacation + Events (LIV+) that allows guests to immerse themselves in five days of exhilarating aquatic adventures in turquoise waters.

I flew from Los Angeles to Miami to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos and was happy to be back with the dive team I met last year on my first visit to Beaches Turks and Caicos.

I have now been to both Sandals Montego Bay for diving and Beaches Turks and Caicos. Did you know that everything is included? 5-Star Global Gourmet dining, unlimited premium drinks, Camp Sesame for kids and even daily scuba diving for certified divers – all included.

And the scuba diving is amazing! We saw humpback whales, dolphins moray eels, turtles and so many sharks. It was incredible, it is literally a paradise!

VIDEO: Beaches Turks and Caicos Changes the World: Sandals Foundation Projects

When you choose to vacation at Beaches Turks and Caicos, not only can you enjoy the stunning beaches, all-inclusive food and drink but you are also making a difference. Sandals Foundation operates over 100 projects around the Caribbean and in the last ten years Sandals Foundation has assisted more than one million people in the Caribbean.

When I was at Sandals Montego Bay, I visited Flanker Resource Centre in Montego Bay which is supported by Sandals Montego Bay and the Sandals Foundation. The after-school program provides children with hot meals and many resources including a computer center and an X-BOX room.

During one of our scuba dives at Beaches Turks and Caicos, the divemaster speared several lionfish, and we ate them for lunch at Nepture’s restaurant. They’re so tasty. Check your local Whole Foods store, you might be able to take a bite out of the lionfish problem, by buying a filet at your local store and having them for dinner. Lionfish are an invasive species and are a problem for our reefs which is why culling them is another Sandals Foundation project.

While I was at Beaches Turks and Caicos, I went to see another Sandals Foundation project in action which is a partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation – the social arm of the Real Madrid Academy – to host five days of comprehensive soccer clinics for guests and local students with top coaches from Spain who were brought to both Jamaica and Turks and Caicos for workshops for students aged 9 to 12. There was also a separate day just for training the local coaches.

I love that Sandals Foundation is changing the world one lionfish, and one soccer student at a time. You can help make a difference by vacationing at Beaches Turks and Caicos and participating in a Sandals Foundation activity.

VIDEO: Welcome to the Sesame Street Parade at Beaches Turks and Caicos

When I was little and we lived on Fort Benning Army Base in Georgia, my parents made certain to have a strong television antenna so that I could watch the brand new show called Sesame Street. I loved celebrating the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street in Los Angeles with Beaches Resorts and the Sesame Street Roadshow.

When you are at Beaches Resorts, you can watch the Sesame Street Show at Treasure Beach, the Sesame Street Stage Show and the Sesame Street character PARADE! Make sure to also have your photo with your favorite Sesame Street character!
