I have numerous shots very similar, couldn't keep my finger off the shutter button. Spectacular place, if a little busy.

What is this named viewpoint in Canada?

A bit corny but did the trick. Yes eggs, Maligne Overlook. it's actually difficult to see right into the canyon.

I think most of us are likely in the same boat eggs. I recognised that view but couldn't find it among your previous posts, so may have seen it elsewhere.
The one that I did find here from that location was somewhat different but had enough detail to make a conclusion.

USA. The pilot of a long running TV series was filmed at this location:

I don't think this beach (or island) is uncharted, and I didn't see anything desert like.

Gilligan's island? Google research suggests that the pilot was filmed on Kauai island while the series on coconut island?

Looking for the name of this beach, yes you will find it on Kauai.

I'll be honest, I've got NFC and was hoping for clues. But i can randomly google place names and guess them.
