Located near West Bay on the Caribbean island of Grand Cayman, there is a tiny district called "Hell".  It is a small area about half the size of a football field.  What is unique about this place are the ancient,  black, sharp limestone formations.  Although the peaks look like they could be volcanic, they are in fact made of limestone.  There is a coating of algae upon the white rock that secrets acid and is eroding the rock into the shapes you see.  Although people cannot walk amongst the formations, there are viewing platforms.  Many birds like to feed and nest amongst the sharp limestone peaks.

There are a couple of stories as to how the area was named, one being that since surely this is what "Hell" must look like, the name is appropriate.  Another, that when a stone is thrown amongst the sharp outcroppings, it makes a noise that sounds like it is falling far down into "Hell". 

The area has a post office from which tourists can send postcards marked "From Hell".  If you ever visit the site, be sure to pick up a T-shirt.  There are many available for purchase with funny logos:  I'm proud to boast that "I've been to Hell and back!"

Signs at the site explain that the sharp gray coloured, pinnacled surfaces of the dolostone referred to as "phytokarst", are caused by the weathering of the rock by acid rain and its consumption by carbonate-loving organisms.
