BAJO NUEVO O NEW BANK
The Bajo Nuevo (New Bank) is a shallow platform structure located 110 km east from Alice Shoal and 235 km southwest from Jamaica. The formation consists of two separate banks that are divided by a deep channel of 1.4 km in width. The eastern sides of both banks are marked by pronounced breaking reef crests that protect the shallow reef environments behind them.
Bajo Nuevo measures around 26 km in length and is up to 9 km across, covering 240 km². Cays composed of sand and coral rubble are said to be located on the bank (the largest being Low Cay), although none are visible in these images.
