Spend your Caribbean vacation on Pine Cay, a secluded private island resort located in Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Islands. The island offers two miles of talcum powder beach, clear waters and varied marine life. This private island hideaway has seven freshwater ponds and measures 800 acres in size.
There are only 12 rooms and a cottage at The Meridian Club on Pine Cay, providing guests with privacy and seclusion. In addition to The Meridian Club, there are several privately owned cottages on the island, some available for rent.
Club Rooms face the secluded beach and feature indoor and outdoor showers, separate sitting and sleeping alcoves, and a private screened porch. The Sand Dollar Cottage is great for honeymooners since it provides additional privacy.
There are no automobiles, TV sets, radios and telephones at the Meridian Club, allowing you to rejuvenate and rest, surrounded by nature and songs of tropical birds. The waters around Pine Cay, averaging 75-80 degrees, are perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.
This all inclusive resort has a freshwater swimming pool, a tennis court and bicycles to reach other island beaches. Fishing is also available off the island.
Early breakfast is served on the open-air dining terrace, featuring freshly baked pastries and coffee. English breakfast follows with freshly squeezed juices, lobster omelets and coconut waffles. You can also have the breakfast delivered directly to your room on your vacation.
For lunch, enjoy a light buffet of Pine Cay specialties, followed by mid-afternoon traditional tea. Candlelight dinner is served outdoors, featuring fresh seafood. Click here for more top Caribbean family resorts.
