Cuba – January 25th, 2013

The Gulf of Batabanó is an inlet or strait off southwestern Cuba in the Caribbean Sea, separating mainland Cuba from the Isle of Youth. It is easily recognizable here by its bright, turquoise blue color. The northeastern section of the bay, called the Ensenada de la Broa, on the other hand, appears darker green, probably due to an influx of sediments and algal growth. The gulf’s bright blue waters are in part due to their shallow depth: less than 200 feet (61 m).
