Beata Ridge

      submarine ridge of the southern Caribbean Sea floor. The Beata Ridge trends south-southwest from Beata Cape on the island of Hispaniola and divides this part of the sea into two distinct areas, the Colombian and the Venezuelan abyssal plains. The Aruba Gap, a narrow connection between these two basins, truncates the Beata Ridge before it reaches the continental slope of South America.
