The Rosalind Bank is a large shallow-water carbonate bank formation rising from the Nicaragua Rise — a structure that stretches across the southwestern Caribbean from Honduras to Jamaica. The bank is located 30 km northwest from the Serranilla Bank formation and some 270 km northeast from Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Nicaraguan coast of Central America.


The sandy-bottomed Rosalind Bank has an approximately triangular shape, measuring 100 km in length and 55 km in width (at the -200 m contour), covering an area in the region of 4,500 km². Depths over the bank range from 18 m to 38 m. There are no emergent reefs or cays.
