Pine Cay was the site of the first tourist development on the Turks and Caicos. It was planned in the 1950s. The Meridian Club was established in the early 1970s.

Pine Cay is less than a mile wide and two miles (3 km) long, though 9 miles (14 km) of trails dot the island. Island transportation is by electric golf cart and bicycle. The main beach is 2 miles (3.2 km) long. There is a paved airstrip that accommodates small private aircraft and helicopters.

The island was set to host a private party for television personality Kim Kardashian. Her boyfriend, rapper Kanye West, has reportedly paid over one million dollars to hold the event there, however Kardashian later denied the claim.

Pine Cay is also near Dellis Cay and Fort George's Cay (also known as Shell Island).
