One of the most common questions we hear at The Meridian Club is, “Aside from the beach, what else is there to do on Pine Cay?” There is so much going on in that question, we don’t know where to start!
Yes, it’s true the beach is spectacular. I have had the good fortune of working with The Meridian Club, in various capacities, for the past ten years. On one trip, which was more of a social nature, I met a new homeowner on the boat back from Pine Cay to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. He was so excited about his home that he offered details about his methodical research for the “perfect island house.” The greatest criteria was it had to have a nice beach, both in its natural appeal and limited population. He searched for many months and took several visits throughout the Caribbean, and eventually found there is nothing better than Pine Cay. To him, it is the perfect beach hideaway.
There is an abundant list of activities on Pine Cay. What tends to happen is after our guests arrive, they make their way to their unit (beach suite, cottage or private home) and then go out to the beach where they tend to stay for the next week – reading books, taking walks, snoozing through a nap (or two.) At Pine Cay we allow the guests to inquire about activities, instead of interfering with their solitude on the beach or at the pool, so unlike large hotels and resorts what you can do on Pine Cay may not be so obvious. Here is the list of activities included in your room rate.
- Jogging and walking
- Paddle boarding
- Shelling and Beachcombing
- Bird Watching
- Library and board games
- Shuffle Board

So you might be saying to yourself, “I can do some of those things nearly anywhere in the Caribbean”, and you might be right about that. We do have many other activities that are unique to Pine Cay. The most popular and widely discussed is the outdoor drive-in movie night, using golf carts. It’s the night of the week guests are most likely to get to know each other. Some of our other activities have drawn attention from Steve Bennett of Uncommon Caribbean fame. He was enamored by our bell, and the “call to action” in On-Site Pine Cay: What’s With the Old Bell at The Meridian Club? and was equally found on our airstrip, enjoying it as a 12-year old might, in Uncommon Attraction: Colwes Field on Pine Cay, Turks & Caicos
So, whatever you fancy – water sports, interesting diversions or authentic Caribbean experiences – you can find it on our little 800-acre island, on Pine Cay in Turks & Caicos.
