Unfortunately I don't think it's real. According to many articles in Internet it should be in Mexico, but you can find only one snapshot of the place (the one here) and also lights and shadows doesn't look real. Moreover even standard Pro camera doesn't have so high dynamic range to catch all real shadows and light the view should have. The probability the picture is real is very low.
The beach is real, it's known as "The hidden beach" On the Marieta Islands, near Mexico. The reason the photograph has captured such high dynamic ranges is through editing. HDR toning (google it) is a very popular way to achieve photos with contrast like this one. It can also be achieved on the App "Instagram"

Luke, for me the picture looks like a classical fake.

1. How many different pictures of the beach did you see?
2. There's no serious article about such an unusual beach.
3. The beach should be rocky.
4. HDR can help, but can't do miracles.
5. There are unusually high (for the cave) waves on left side
6. Reflections from water should be different
7. and more...

Of course you can explain all those issues one by one. But what's the chance all those things happened really all together in one place one time? Zero.

I agree the picture was edited. But significantly more than you think. It's much more common than previous option.
