Guess the mystery travel picture location and you could win a prize - how to enter

By Nigel Thompson

The Mirror Travel mystery picture competition for May has been revealed - can you guess where we are?

Each month, we post a photo - all you need to do is work out where it is and you could win three superb illustrated DK Travel Guide books.To give you a helping hand, we'll be revealing clues here - so make sure to check back, and follow @MirrorTravel and @TravelEdNigel on Twitter for updates!

This month's picture (located at the top of the article) is a port in a tropical island known for its colourful, historic buildings and large natural harbour. The 548ft long, famously wobbly pontoon bridge in the foreground swings open to allow shipping to pass.

The question for May - name the island.

CLUE 1: Is this holiday destination a Dutch treat?

CLUE 2: Where Willems' tadpoles are found?

THE PRIZE: The first correct answer chosen at random will win three beautifully illustrated DK Travel country or city guides of their choice, each up to a value of £19.99. For a full list of titles visit dk.co.uk.
