Cuba Cayo Largo

This is a shot I took of Pinkie’s hand on one of the beaches on Cayo Largo. The sand on the island is very pale, and it reminded me of the beaches of Bilene, and its Uembje Lagoon, which I remember from when we lived in Swaziland and took holidays there.

Cayo Largo is just 21 degrees North of the equator, accounting for the warmth of the sea. However, apparently due to its whiteness, the beach is always cool. We could walk barefoot in the midday sun on the beaches without feeling any heat from the sand.

On 4 November 2001 Cayo Largo was struck by Hurricane Michelle, with devastating effect. During our stay we were advised that only the one resort was open, as they were renovating the others. I believe that they are all running smoothly now.
