James Bond 007, is one of the most popular movie franchises in the world and Jamaica has been centre stage for being featured in the film yet again.
The country’s white sand and beaches are just some of the reasons the island is such a desired location.
“No Time To Die” is the forthcoming spy film and the 25th in the James Bond series. It stars Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as the fictional British MI6 agent.
The film is scheduled to premiere in the United Kingdom on September 30, 2021.
Craig is said to be playing a retired James Bond living in Port Antonio, Jamaica.
The following are must-see James Bond filming locations in Jamaica:
1. King’s House – This is home to the Jamaican Government, where Bond asks a sergeant to make sure his diver doesn’t get away.
2. Morgan’s Harbour hotel and yacht club – Mary Goodnight and Bond had dinner at the location.
4. Rose Hall Great House – Bond and Solitaire escape through a graveyard and poppy field here. The set is gone and it’s now part of the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course.
5. Half Moon – At the resort Bond and character Rosie Carver, played by Gloria Hendry, met and spent the night in cottage 10.
6. Swamp Safari – It’s a crocodile sanctuary for reptiles displaced due to overdevelopment. Roger Moore’s appearance had him leapt over alligators. It still bears the sign “Trespassers Will Be Eaten” from the film.
7. Norman Manley International Airport – Bond catches a cab upon arrival on the island.
8. Palisadoes – A chase ensued on the stretch with Bond and a fake taxi driver.
9. Kananga House – The house was destroyed for the movie, but it was rebuilt and bears the name of Ross Kananga, the stuntman that performed the leap. A homage to Kananga’s bravery, the villain in the film was named after him.
10. Green Grotto Caves – It was the underground lair and subterranean lake of Dr. Kananga.
