Beaches® BFF: Another Year of Celebrating Friendship

As the air crisps up in the northern hemisphere, the Caribbean continues to sizzle and dazzle people all throughout the year. Turks & Caicos is no different, with 12 miles of soft-sand beach and its iconic turquoise waters making a tempting call. The Caribbean plus friends no doubt makes for an epic time. Planning a vacation with your friends can get complicated though, so Beaches BFF has you covered. Just bring yourself, your besties, and a swimsuit and let Beaches handle the rest in this jam-packed all-inclusive girls’ trip.


There’s something for every palate at Beaches Turks & Caicos with 21 Global Gourmet™ restaurants to choose from. Beaches BFF 2022 featured amazing experiences, but those who crave extra thrills can enjoy endless land and water sports, including the expansive Pirates Island Waterpark. If you’re curious to know what kind of showstopping events and excitement the girls had at Beaches BFF, look no further. You’re in the right place.


The party starts when you walk in

Besties from all walks of life poured in as we prepared them for the eventful weekend ahead. After a long flight, a refreshing drink is an order. Scrumptious hot food was served and drinks were flowing with options like a fruity Rum Punch or a Beaches BFF-branded coconut drink – coconut rum optional! Once the check-in process was complete, it was time to collect beachy gear. Each guest received their own BFF-themed beach bag with the cutest swag, readying the girls for a week of fun!


First night of fun: VIP cocktail party

The sun has fallen behind the horizon which means it’s time for the VIP cocktail party! The perfect primer to a BFF vacay, this beachside affair is a thrilling start with rhythmic beats and a colorful array of lights. The best part? No shoes required. Ladies captured the moment with their favorite people at gorgeous photo set-ups. Drinks were poured and tropical hors d’oeuvres made their way around the beach party as well. Soon after, the real fun began with a Caribbean dance party on the sand. Some learned a few new moves, and some showed up to show them how it’s done.


Have yoga your way

Flow to the sounds of birds chirping, letting nature gently soothe your mind and body. With their besties at their side, the group started the day with some uplifting slow yoga that builds friendship in a new way. Have you ever done tree pose with your bestie?

There was also the option to up the intensity with a yoga session to work your booty! This year, Buti yoga had the girls sweating and their blood pumping with Pilates-based yoga, having them move to the rhythm of the music.


It’s a pool party bash!

Besties took to the French Village Pool for a supreme brunch extravaganza. With their swimsuits on and a cute Beaches BFF bag in tow, these ladies walked into a treasure trove with a host of invited sponsors showering them in gorgeous products and exclusive perks. Generous gifts, complimentary makeup, and lavish skin care were just the tip of the iceberg.


The girls had the option to grab a strawberry cocktail and a plate full of delicious breakfast to prepare for the next event – a spectacular fashion show. This most glorious fashion show in the tropics had outfits for every occasion. A colorful collection of beachy ensembles swished up and down the runway with flirty and flowy outfits of eye-catching aqua and fuchsia pink. Innovative, mix-&-match swimwear as well as elegant resort shop clothes made the catwalk to complete this vivid spectacle.


Sail on a private party catamaran

The dreamy turquoise water in Turks & Caicos is a sight to behold. It’s hard to refuse a thrilling experience on a private boat set on the ocean. That’s why several BFFs were all aboard the catamaran cruise thanks to our partners at Island Routes Caribbean Adventures. The ladies got down to their favorite tunes in the gleaming sun and sipped on cocktails while taking in the panoramic views – if this sounds like paradise it’s because it was. During the trip, passengers got to set foot on an offshore island, where they basked in the sun on the secluded beach and snapped selfies with the ocean as their backdrop.


At an over-the-water pit stop, they grabbed a snorkel to take a dip and glimpse at all the beautiful marine life. Jumping into the water with your bestie? Optional but so much fun! On the way back to the resort, there was no choice but to indulge in delectable appetizers and party until they couldn’t anymore.

Treat yourself like it’s a spa day

What’s a girls’ trip without a little pampering? Presented by Sanitas and Farmhouse Fresh, the girls took part in skincare workshops taught by the experts. Farmhouse Fresh offers organic skincare products made with the freshest ingredients, and every product purchased saves an animal’s life. Sanitas also features non-toxic skincare products designed for unique skincare needs. BFFs got schooled on your skin and how they can care for it with spa-quality skincare products. Guests asked the experts and tried on products they could take home for themselves from Red Lane® Spa. Plus, they didn’t leave empty handed - even more goodies were added to their routine.


Get creative with your BFFs

All our BFFs turned up for the craftiest event yet to partner with their gal pals and make some adorable baubles. BFFs joined House of Perna’s Amanda Perna to learn how to make gorgeous tassel earrings. A rainbow of colored thread was available to choose from, right down to the metal with shiny gold or cool silver to adorn their ears.

BFFs also had the opportunity to craft a classic friendship bracelet with an assortment of beads to create unique pieces. Match your friend’s or create your own, gal pals created beautiful handmade jewelry to hallmark their friendship.


These ladies were in for a literal treat for this next creative workshop. BFFs got a chance to paint works of art with a boozy twist. They practiced their artistic skills on a wine glass while drinking a fine Kim Crawford varietal of their choice. The most important thing was sharing laughs, tales, and moments with your favorite people.


Dance the night away at Club Liquid

Neon lights flashed and the drinks were pouring nonstop for a night of nostalgia and fun at the ultimate 80s disco party. Ladies danced all night, moving to the sounds that took them back to an earlier era. They followed the groove of greasers dominating the dancefloor to “Footloose” and other American classics.


Ending on a high note with a fiery celebration

Decked out in glow sticks and bliss, BFFs danced the night away by the crackling bonfire to pulse pumping energy. BFFs had the option to take a dip into something spectacular with Body Marbling by turning their skin into glowing works of art under the black lights.

Bringing the heat to Beaches BFF, talented firebreathers blew everyone away with their amazing feats. But it didn’t stop there – ending the evening on a bang, the night finished off in a shower of vivid fireworks.
