Still, many people have a lot of questions about the private island hideaway that is The Meridian Club on Pine Cay. Here are some of them:
Where is Pine Cay?
Pine Cay is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, which is a small British Overseas Territory located in Caribbean, southeast of the Bahamas and about an hour by plane from Miami.
Pine Cay lies to the northeast of Providenciales, the westernmost island in the Turks and Caicos, and the main commercial and transportation hub.
Can I fly my plane to Pine Cay’s private airport?
Yes! We’re a private island with an airport, so if we have space to put you up, private pilots can fly in for an overnight stay or a vacation.
Pine Cay paved runway is 2500 feet long with an unpaved 1000+ foot buffer to the east and clear approaches in both directions. Parking space is available adjacent to the airstrip for up to 10 airplanes. No airport landing or parking fees are charged.
Is there fresh water on Pine Cay?
Since we’re proud of our eco-stewardship, we’d like to point out that, for the most part, The Meridian Club on Pine Cay is a sustainable operation, and this means that we do not pipe or ship in water from other parts of the Turks and Caicos islands.
Instead, we rely on a wonder of nature – a natural freshwater lense, forty feet deep, that lies beneath our resort. Amazing as it may seem, fresh rain and groundwater is lighter than the saltwater below and so floats atop of it. Rainwater replenishes our subterranean oasis.
What’s the weather like?
A constant breeze and relatively low humidity (60%) means that we have perfect weather. Temperatures range from the low 80’s in winter to above 90 degrees in the summer.
Come visit, relish in the privacy of your own retreat, and enjoy a life that’s free of stress.
