The Meridian Club
Turks & Caicos Islands in the British West
Despite its virtual anonymity, Pine Cay lies just
560 miles southeast of Miami and 90 miles
north of Hispaniola. The 800 acre cay offers two
miles of talcum powder beach, and is graced
year round by soothing trade winds, tropical
temperatures and low humidity.
Some say that Columbus filled his water pots from
Pine Cays fresh-water ponds during his
quest for the new world. In the centuries that
followed, countless mariners
and marauders no doubt did the same. Yet despite
Pine Cay's location on a much navigated trade
route, its only permanent settlement seems to have
been an Arawak Indian Village dated at
around 800 A.D. Then , in the late 1960's, a scholar
turned-dreamer set out to create an Island
escape which eventually became the Meridian Club.
Today, the Club is owned by Pine Cay's owners.
A small group of individuals, dedicated to
preserving the island in its undisturbed state.
