See the line of white foam near the top of the photo? That's a coral reef. The deeper blue above is the sea. (arriving Grand Cayman)

There are 3 Cayman Islands, a British Overseas territory, located in the Western Caribbean Sea south of Cuba.
Cayman Brac: 14 square miles, 1500 residents (Brac is Gaelic for bluff. There is a cliff, a bluff, that runs through the center of the island from the West at sea level, rising to about 140 feet at the Eastern end.)
Grand Cayman: 88 square miles, 48,000 residents (Known for Seven Mile Beach and Stingray City. We did get in the water with @ 50 stingrays swarming us. They were like puppy dogs, wanting to be petted and fed. We took a wonderful boat trip with Stingray Sailing-- LINK)
a little note: residents pronounce Cayman with emphasis on both syllables. Kay' man'
