Pine Cay, Turks and Caicos, is a privately owned island of 800 acres/324 hectares that can be visited only by prior arrangement. Although the island is flat and extremely dry, there are two freshwater lakes and 2.5 mi/4 km of beachfront. The peace and quiet and the unsurpassed service more than make up for the lack of scenery. No cars, phones, radios or newspapers intrude on the island's wonderful isolation.
Located between North Caicos and Providenciales, Pine Cay is home of the Meridian Club. Although it is similar to an exclusive country club, the Meridian Club is actually a fairly informal hotel with 28 cottages. Totally secluded, it offers diving, fishing, nature talks and an exquisite beach.
Local transportation is by foot, golf cart or bicycle. Bird-watchers can look for more than 150 species. Guests can visit the Fort George Cay National Park, a ruined British fort, or play Robinson Crusoe by picnicking on one of the nearby undeveloped cays: Water and Little Water.
In addition, the Turks and Caicos National Underwater Park is located offshore (you can rent snorkeling equipment, though you must take along your own scuba gear).
