Thanks for the quote, pointy!
It's always good to get a reliable ID from an expert.
And thanks to everybody, helping to answer my question.

Ok, I was checking all the RAW files, investigating the snakes skin.
Although it doesn't look quite 'hydrodynamic', I don't see 'real' spines.
But have a look yourself (100% crop):
I can see some tiny 'kind-of-spines' on the right side, but nothing which is comparable with Hydrophis donaldi.
P.S.: Of some reason, the forum software reduces the image and makes it quite blury... :-(

because I have no access to the original RAW file at the moment, I can't say if the skin was spiny.
Apart from that, the one that I saw looks quite similar to the one you linked, although the stripes have been more white instead of yellow.
I'll look up the RAW for the spines anyway.
Thanks for your input!

Thanks for your replies!
@Jim: Unfortunately I don't have significantly different angles, e.g. where the tail can be seen... I could kick my own a... :-(
But the snake seemed quite long for a sea snake - definitely more than one meter.
@Mike: The photo was not taken in Secret Bay - more in the north east of Bali.
