Included in the Room Rate
Shelling and Beach Combing
Sand dollars and lovely seashells can be found along our beach, named the best in the Caribbean. Sand Dollar Point, a half mile from the Club, is a favorite spot to search at low tide.
Daily snorkeling trips are conducted by the Club, weather permitting. Snorkeling gear (masks, fins, and snorkels) is available free of charge. Since you will be skimming the reef in a national park, we ask you to “take only pictures, kill only time, leave only bubbles.” Spear fishing and underwater collecting are forbidden by law.
There are many interesting and colorful migratory and non-migratory birds on and around Pine Cay. Bird guidebooks are available in the lobby and gift shop.
Library and Board Games
The Club’s exchange library, located on the second floor of the main building, is a quiet spot to cool down in the heat of the day and read a book. Guests are welcome any time of the day. An assortment of board games is also available, including Monopoly, Scrabble and Dominos.
There is a dart board right next to the bar.
Have a challenging game on the shuffle board court by the tennis court just a minute’s walk from the club house.
Sight-Seeing on Pine Cay
Rent a golf cart and explore our safe and beautiful island. Maps are available in your room binder and at the front desk.
Additional costs apply. Contact us for more details and fees.
Glow Worm Cruise
Each lunar month, five nights after the full moon, and fifty-five minutes after sunset, an amazing phenomenon occurs in the current that ebbs from the Caicos Bank, only a short boat ride from the Meridian Club. A wonderful, fifteen-minute display of underwater luminescence is created by the mating of a worm-like sea creature called Odontosyllis Enopla.
There are other species of glow worms which spawn on a lunar cycle, but not many, nor in many places in the world. On the New England coast at Woods Hole they spawn between the full and the new moon in the summer, just after twilight. The same kind of phenomenon occurs only off the coast of British Columbia, in the Pacific near Samoa, and in the East Indies in the Bay of Batavia.
Each month at this time, we organize a twilight catamaran ride to the area where the spawning occurs and watch this beautiful wonder of nature. It’s as rare as the Meridian Club itself and is not to be missed. Read more about Glow Worm Cruises on our blog.
