    Neither can I really - it could be Gravesend or Grimsby!!

        No tries? Need a clue?
        OK. Guadeloupe is a good answer but is composed by several islands. This photo was not taken in the biggest islands.

          Is this Point-a Pitre on Grand Terre Island???

          If so, it is not on the largest island in Guadeloupe Island, despite the name, as you pointed out. (Somebody with a sense of humor must have put names on these islands and places)

            It's one of the pararadoxes of Guadeloupe, Basse-Terre is larger than Grande-Terre.
            But you have to search even more little island(s) close by mainlands.

                You can sleep well,Ombugge,That's it.
                Les Saintes are composed by two islands:Terre-de-Haut and Terre-de-Bas.
                The picture shows the harbour of Terre-de-Haut.
                The notice on wikipedia is rather well done.
                Anyway les Saintes is my favorite place in French Antilles.

                  Re: What place is this?

                  So you can travel "domestically" to places like this, or Bora-Bora, Noumea or Port-aux-Français, since that is all within French overseas territories?

                  Now for the next Puzzle.
                  Where in the world do you find this handsome Mosque???:

                            Some likeness, yes, but "our" Mosque has 4 minarets and a silvery dome.

                              Ombugge, I've looked through countless water villages in Indonesia, not only Kampong Ayer, but cannot find a silver-domed, four-minaret mosque anywhere, let alone one with a TV mast nearby! I don't think I'm in the wrong part of the world, though you never know. Is a clue permissible, oh inscrutable one?

                                You are in the right part of the world and right country.
                                As for a clue??
                                There is a much larger and more famous Mosque in this town, but on the opposite side of the river.

                                Now that was a straight forward clue or two. (I promise it will not be repeated)
