    Could you help me to translate "spit" in this context?:

    "Jamaica had a natural harbour protected by a long sand spit"

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi!

    It's a long section of land. If you look it up in WR you'll find:

    countable (of land) punta f, lengua f

    A Google search also gave me this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingston_Harbour
    the word is mentioned there as well.

    Cheers!

    En este caso, spit significa "espigón". Esa es la palabra correcta.
