Has anyone looked for pictures yet in this area? I'm going to start now, just don't want to repeat.

I also thought maybe the foliage at the bottom might be part of a Moreton Fig tree. That is how I came across Queensland.
Wiki also says: The Moreton Bay Fig has been found growing on both native and introduced trees in New Zealand and in Hawaii.

Im going with POIPU BEACH, KAUAI, HAWAII, USA for today for no good reason but seems to be the most popular choice based on what we have so far and I need to sleep as well.

PriorityClub Connect message boards are looking to here for answers, as we seem to get it in a day or 2

I am looking at Queensland also. There are some photos in shutterstock which have "similiar" looks. But the reason I am leaning towards Queensland is the direction the sails are. They appear to be in the southern hemisphere as someone earlier pointed out. @:-)

No more time to spend today. Finally answered Kauai for one of our accounts and Tasmania for the other.

I have been to many beaches on Kauai and the one thing I question is the color of the sand. It was much whiter than the Challenge photo appears to be.

Done for the day

I give up for today. Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii it is. Maybe they will go easy on us next week!

I went with Kauai, Hawaii, USA for today also.

I started to think that the waves look like they're crashing against the black rock formation and that that could be part of the blowhole on Kauai?

I totally agree. I'll do more research tomorrow on Queensland.
Yes, I thought the way the sailboat was moving backwards was a clue.
Have a good evening.

And clothing optional, too! Strange choice for PC, I'd think. But, I'd go.
