Default Where in the world?

Can you identify this beautiful isolated beach? Where are the crowds?





Pamda took this picture on a cruise several years back.

Morning Cap't, I do believe that this is China Beach, it has a Pac Rim flavor to it, could this have been somewhere in Vietnam?

Either you guys are well traveled or you took the free cruises that our uncle was offering 35 years ago. Or maybe you sneaked a peak at Pamda's Vietnam story on happysails.

Correct. China Beach (not the TV series version) outside of Da Nang, where the marines landed 35 years ago.

Next time I'll find a tough one.

Oh Capt. Queeg you fell for the ole trick my friend. lol You left the back door OPEN. You must remember to hide your properties on this wiley gang. If you right click on the photo and then look at the properties it is quite evident what beach this is. :o) We all have done this at one time or another hence the requirement when running trivia that all photos used be masked at a different web page and the ID changed. Even DT and I got caught one time or another on this one so you are in good company. Take Care.

Alas, poor me. I expected honor among cruisers. (Except for those who work for the government, CA)

I reconized it as China Beach simply because I have a simular photo as I have been there and there weren't any people there when I was there either,It must have been taken during the week as opposed to the weekend,also maybe taken in October when I was there and is maybe the wet season .It was a fabulous beach!!!!

Anna ...

I believe it was March. I can't remember the day of the week.

You can see the whole story on my website: http://happysails.com

For what it's worth, this isn't the REAL China Beach. It's up the road a way or two.
