    Close but no cigar Hoyt.. Some part is correct, the other wrong.
    Tip: yours truly resides there.

    Your picture shown give the correct answer, Harbour Island, Gordons Bay.

    Harbour Island is mostly build in and from the sea forming artificial islands etc on which dwellings are built. Most properties connecting to the waterways have their own moorings which is a boon especially for me not having to launch my stinkpot every time I want to go fishing.

    That said, Harbour Island have only a small patch of beach which is on the top right of the picture posted and a artificial "beach" on the open patch to the left entering the harbour - it sits quite a bit above sea level and is mostly used for fishing. Out of picture to the left neighbouring HI is Cayman beach and to the right bottom and out of picture he beautiful Bikini beach.
    Hoyt 's mistake was Krystal Beach which is actually a 4 star Hotel at Harbour Island but not part of the complex hence their guests cannot enter the walkways on the canals of HI development. It is a very private and entry controlled environment which the residents strive for.
    By the way, t Capture.JPG he marker placed on the map near St Criox drive is my pad.
    Athe bottom toward the right is Bertie's Moorings which was the restaurant founded by the world famous racing yacht sailor Bertie Reed. What a guy he was.....

    I thought the vantage point might be from the hotel. My mistake.
