Sandy Ground - Anguilla (I think exact location is Road Bay)

tdw: I haven't been to Newcastle at all and it's almost 30 years since I've been to Australia.

It's not the Bahamas. Look further south. It's the port of entry for a Caribbean country that fought a war for independence.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well I must say you did a good job of identification.

Speaking of which ... are you saying that your pic is not Sandy Ground/Road Bay Anguilla ?

I think Fallard didn't make to the last page.. I don't think there's much doubt that you've nailed it once again!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

FAllard ... blind luck on my part.

Ok .... I've never been here but I have spent time on the larger island to its west. Large island is home to the capital city of the group. Stong wartime connection with the USA. Somewhat off the beaten track for south pacific cruisers but most definitely on my bucket list.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well the islands that seem to tick all the boxes would be the Philippines but most of the small islands are east and south of Luzon and I can't match it to anything east.

I assume "off the beaten track" excludes Fiji. Or do you mean this island rather than the group?

Looked at the other obvious WWII islands but so far.....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not nearly as major a group as the Phillipines nor as on the track as Fiji. This island itself is very much off the track but the group as a whole is not exactly overun with tourists. Popular with divers I believe.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh boy, if this is an island on the edge of one of those atolls in French Polynesia or the Marshall Islands, I'll still be looking at Christmas. But the fun of this thread is finding new places so....

Geoff,
Sovereign nation, landmass of nearly 30,000 kilometres or about 11,000 square miles so its not simply a tiny archipelago.

I could give you hints re connection with America and WWII but as soon as I did you would have me.
