Taken on a dull, overcast day. All boats were cancelled on account of the bad weather, so rather than waste the day lying around doing nothing, I went for a walk to Dolarog Beach & Las Cabanas. I think that is Elephant Island in the distance.
Well I tried finding out the name of this island but no luck. Lagen island is in the far distance & has a $200 US a night resort. I did however find Las Cabanas photo gallery ($100 US a night) & it was nice to see the area in full sunlight:
This is a link to Las Cabanas
You don't have to stay at the resorts, There's plenty of cheaper accomodation in El Nido town.

Indeed the weather is very bad, the sky gives dark clouds.
You chose a good angle with this sand beach are nice.
Sharpness, clarity and presentation are of great quality
I find your picture gives perfect volume at the photograph.
Composition and angle are very well taken, excellent done.
Have a nice weekend,

A well composed image with the overhanging trees almost caressing the island. I like the soft light and tones engendered by the stormy atmosphere.

Magnifique photo bien encadrée naturellement par la végétation. Vraiment merveilleux ce coin et bel endroit pour des vacances, peut-être avec un peu plus de soleil. Excellente composition et les rochers sont superbes comme je les aime. Belle présentation.
Félicitations!... et bonne journée,

J'aime ce feuillages exotique qui coiffe et ouvre la vue sur les rochers, la couleur limpide de l'eau et le sable chaud, une vraie beauté

Another great looking beach, even on an overcast day it shows great natural beauty and looks quite unspoilt from that POV...
Good general quality and superb place!

TFS - congrats,

The trees are helping to frame the scene. The distance between the beach and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The cloudy sky is giving a cool mood to the tropical scenery. Have a nice day.

Thius could be too halong bay/Vietnam or Phi Phi island /thailand........
