Local legend purports that female pirate Anne Bonny camped out here in the 1720s, lending the original name – Pirate Cay. This 1000 acre island now hosts the ultra luxurious and very private vacation hideaway Parrot Cay Resort and Spa, called by some the world’s most exclusive resort. Movie stars enjoy the solitude and anonymity. Beachfront homes have been built for the rich and famous including Bruce Willis and Keith Richards.
Apart from a settlement of Arawak Indians, probably dating to the 11th century, Pine Cay has had no permanent population until The Meridian Club, Turks and Caicos was built here in the 1970s. Today, the people who work on the island come primarily from North Caicos and Middle Caicos.
