    No, not Fishguard Harbour, but you are all in the general area.

    Maybe this view taken from the other end of the Harbour will help?

      Could it be Solva harbour in Pembrokeshire, Wales?

          It is indeed Solva harbour! A lovely little place situated at the top of St Brides Bay. If you ever find yourself in that area, it is well worth anchoring outside, and launching your jolly boat for a trip into the village. Some very nice pubs to have a meal.

          I have been into Solva a few times, it's just one of those places that always stick in your mind.

          Just outside the harbour - lots of interesting places to explore if you have the time.

              So, where are we here, in this image taken almost 8-10 years ago, maybe even 11 years ago, from the deck of Crystal Symphony:

                  It is something familiar with this picture, but I cannot pin point this rock.
                  The fishing boat looks Japanese, Korean or Taiwanese, so it will put us somewhere in that region.
                  My first thought was the disputed Dokdo / Takeshima Islets in the Sea of Japan, but they are bigger so it cannot be.

                  My guess is somewhere in the East China Sea /Ryukyu Island Chains, Japan.??

                    Thanks for making an educated guess ombugge. I do like your reasoning, but I must also state that you are on the wrong side of our planet.

                    Tip: It's an uninhabited stratovolcano island, with an area of approximately 0.4 km², and rising to an elevation of about 40 meters above sea level!

                        No not the Caribbean, this is in the Cape Verde Islands. Ilheu dos Passaros:





                        The fishing boat lead me in the wrong direction, although I knew that several Japanese and Taiwanese fishing companies are/have been using Cape Verde as base for their Tuna fishing in the Atlantic.

                        That the land in the background was "invisible" also made this a tricky one, looking for isolated islets in the open ocean.

                          Yes, you are right on the correct place ombugge!

                          Congratulations... Ilhéu dos Pássaros is the place!
