Turks & Caicos Tombolo by Matt Anderson
I have traveled a fair amount to the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico, and over a dozen Caribbean Islands, I had never seen anything like this before! Beautiful teal waters contrasting the distant rock cliffs with waves colliding into each other from both sides in a symmetrical flow! The Caribbean sea wraps around a distant rock formation - detached headland. A shallow sandbar, covered at high tide, creates a breaking shelf for the waves to crash into each other. ( #sandspit or #tombolo : a deposition landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land such as a mound, spit or bar) reconnected the island to the mainland It's quite amazing to see the waves closing, like a zipper being zipped towards the camera. The teal blue waters with shallow paper white sands below creates a vivid hue for which I have never encountered on any other island except for Antigua.Mudjin Harbor Beach, Middle Caicos, Turks and Caicos.
