James Bond Beach, Oracabessa Bay.

Do you like your martinis shaken not stirred? Then James Bond beach is for you. This is where the famous beach scene in Doctor No was filmed. Situated just ten miles from Ocho Rios against a backdrop of lush, tropical mountains, this is picturesque spot.

From the beach you can take in views of Goldeneye (Ian Flemming’s Jamaican retreat) but without having to sell a kidney to enjoy it. James Bond beach is a public slice of paradise and the views are stunning. This is the perfect place to sunbathe, swim and snorkel.  Not too many tourists make their way over here, so it should be relatively peaceful.

The physical layout of the place also makes it a favourite for organised parties in the evenings.  Aside from the many Soca parties held here you’ll also find it plays host to jazz festivals and reggae gigs, adding a certain Jamaican vibe to all things Bond.
