Cayo Coco, Cuba

Cayo Coco, Cuba's fourth largest island, boasts of the world's largest colony of pink flamingos.

A swing bridge allows small boats to pass through the causeway that joins Cayo Coco to the main island.

The causeway, extending for seventeen kilometres over the shallows, was constructed in the late
1980's to open the beaches of Cayo Coco for resort development. Resulting disturbances to
natural tidal water flows threatened marine life. Bridges and culverts were added to the causeway
to restore the flow of water and nutrients to revive marine life in the passage between the islands.

The largest resort complex in the Caribbean has been constructed to exploit Cayo Coco's gorgeous beaches.
