Bajo Nuevo (New Bank) is a shallow platform located 110 km east from Alice Shoal and 235 km southwest from Jamaica. The carbonate platform consists of two separate banks divided by a deep channel of 1.4 km in width and up to 40-45 m depth. The eastern sides of both banks are marked by pronounced emergent reef crests that protect shallow reef environments.
