Can anyone identify the location of this image?

Unknown Location Image

A few websites claim that it is from Neil Island in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands of India. But it is not correct as far as I know. None of my friends who visited Neil Island recollect seeing such a place there.

Replies with proofs (i.e. without guess-work like "It could be xyz..." ) like similar photographs taken or with lat-long coordinates will be extremely helpful.

    It looks staggeringly photoshopped, but we'll be generous and assume that i's just tropical lighting and some generous levels/saturation tweaking.

    The pieces are real, but the colors have definitely been "enhanced".

  • I got the picture from an advertisement on a travel agency's website. That should explain the colors ;-) Jan 6 '16 at 11:41

Railay Beach area in Krabi Province, Thailand. The karst outcroppings are at the south end of "sunset" beach.


It reminded me of the classic Halong Bay shots.
Google image search included "Neil Island" in the search box.
Replacing that with "Halong" gave several appropriate hits including this 1440 x 900 version correctly identifying it as Railay beach - as Tom has already advised.

Also here at 1440 x 810
