About Coral Cays

Coral CayCoral Cays (variant spelling of 'Key') are created when dead coral breaks off from the reef and the surface is eventually covered in soil allowing plants to grow. The waves eventually break the coral down to sand and hence the reason why there are so many idyllic beaches on these coral cays. Coral Cays are flat and usually lack features such as rivers and hills.
