Pine Cay is an 800-acre private island located just to the north of Providenciales. Virtually undeveloped, the island is surrounded by two miles of the best white-sand beaches in the Caribbean. With no internet and limited telephone reception, Pine Cay is the one of the only places in thee entire Caribbean where you can get completely away from the pressures of modern life. Just kick back with a good book under a shaded cabana and hear nothing but waves rolling up on the beach.
Pine Cay is comprised of a series of limestone ridges. Once eroded, the limestone turns into the beautiful powdery white sand that has made the Turks and Caicos so famous. The porous limestone below also traps rainwater, providing Pine Cay with an abundance of easily acquirable drinking water.
The waters surrounding Pine Cay are home to a remarkable variety of marine habitats. Offshore there are miles of undisturbed barrier reefs. Vertiginous drop-offs and tidal flats are often only a few hundred yards apart. Coral, grass and mangrove communities make the area particularly interesting for studies in marine biology, and the waters teem with many as-yet-unidentified species. Due to the diversity of habitats and variety of species, the fishing is excellent. Because spear guns are prohibited, and there are relatively few divers, the marine life is thriving and not “man-shy.”
Pine Cay is home to just one resort, the Meridian Club. There are no telephones, and electricity is limited — this means there is air conditioning either, so guests cool offs thanks to the nightly trade winds that blow in from the east. Guests at the Meridian Club enjoy total privacy, luxury and intimacy. Pine Cay is a popular retreat for people from over the world. It’s a special place that few know about.
To reach Pine Cay, visitors must first fly to Providenciales International Airport (PLS). The Meridian Club resort then provides complimentary return airport transfer to Blue Haven Marina, and return transfer to Pine Cay Marina via private boat. As well, Pine Cay features its own private airstrip.
There are only a few beaches that truly rival world famous Grace Bay beach… and this is one of them. A picture perfect stretch of beach, it’s wide, long and has that white powder soft sand that people dream about.
Look out for sand dollars, there's lots to be found.
