Ensenada de la Broa and Gulf of Batabanó, Cuba

February 2nd, 2011 Category: Sediments

Cuba - January 16th, 2011

The Gulf of Batabanó is an inlet or strait off southwestern Cuba in the Caribbean Sea, separating mainland Cuba (above) from the Isle of Youth below). The gulf’s shallow depth, combined with the presence of sediments and algae, give it its bright teal color.

The part of the gulf to the north that appears darker green in color is the Ensenada de la Broa, a bay in southern Cuba in the provinces of Matanzas and Havana.
