Late 17th century: from Spanish cayo 'shoal, reef', from French quai 'quay'.
quay from Late Middle English:
One of those words that seems designed to trip up poor spellers, this word was originally spelt as it is pronounced, key. It comes from Old French kay, of Celtic origin. The change of spelling occurred in the late 17th century, influenced by the modern French spelling quai. Cay or key for a sand bar is the same word.
