Caribbean Beaches From The Movies

If you're a movie junkie like we are, you'll appreciate the fact that we've scoured the Caribbean in search of the most Hollywood-worthy beaches. From Pirates of the Caribbean to James Bond movies, these beaches are the backdrop of the big screen, and yes you guessed it, they most definitely live up to the hype.

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl fans may recognize this gorgeous strip of sand from St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Turquoise, sparkling waters and hot granules of sugary white sand beneath your feet are an obvious lure for Hollywood, but with an intriguing Pirate history, having this island as the basis for the film made perfect sense for directors.

2. James Bond writer, Ian Flemming actually wrote all 14 books at his home in Jamaica, so it's no wonder many of the films feature this gorgeous tropical island. The beach at the One&Only Club in Nassau, Bahamas hosted a scantily clad Daniel Craig for the movie, Casino Royale - a defining moment for the actor and Bond movies in general.

3. Laughing Waters Beach, Ocho Rios, Jamaica is another stunning beach that defined Hollywood Bond-Girl glamour, where Honey Rider's famous water-soaked, white bikini scene would leave behind a legacy in the 1962 flick, Dr. No.


4. Another Bond moment in the Bahamas made Love Beach on Paradise Island a beach version of a glistening Hollywood movie star. The location where the nuclear weapons where hidden in the 1965 Thunderball movie, Sean Connery and Claudine Auger could not have looked more glamorous laying in the golden Bahamian sands.


5. The unspoiled, 'nature island' of Dominica and its trademark black-sand beaches made the cut for the Disney movies, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3: "Dead Man's Chest" & "At Worlds End".  Not only is this a remarkably gorgeous island in the eastern Caribbean, it also has a rich pirate history, which makes the movie even creepier.
