What's That Shadow In The Water?

by Gillena Cox

Salybia, Trinidad is essentially the ideal place for hiking, retreats and beach limes. Salybia is situated on the north east coast of Trinidad. Scenic Salybia bay is
described by many as” windswept, with surging breakers and a small fringing reef”.

Standing on the sandy beach one can see shadowy areas of the reef. Salybia Reef, approximately 1.5km long and 90m offshore in Salybia Bay, is the only fringing coral reef in Trinidad.

Coral reefs are carbonate structures produced by living organisms, found in shallow, tropical marine waters with little to no nutrients in the water.

A fringing reef is directly attached to a shore or borders it with an intervening shallow channel or lagoon.
