Playa Flamenco, Cuba

Photograph by James Kao

This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images

The north coast of Cuba has some of the most spectacular beaches on hundreds of little islands called cayos. This dock is at Playa Flamenco on Cayo Coco, and the water is only a meter deep at its end and one can walk safely in the shallows for almost 200 meters further out. After taking a series of shots, I could not resist diving into the refreshing waters and feeling the sand beneath my feet!
