Caribbean Sea - March 25th, 2011

Several archipelagos and island-nations are visible in this image of the Caribbean Sea. Some of the islands composing the Bahamas can be observed in the upper left quadrant, while the Turks and Caicos islands are visible to their east.

Below, the larger islands of Cuba (left), Hispaniola (right, including Haiti to the west and the Dominican Republic to the east) and Jamaica (lower left) can also be seen. Cuba and Hispaniola are separated by the Windward Passage, an 80km-wide strait.
