James Bond Beach
It’s the story of the most famous encounter in cinema. Honey Rider (Ursula Andress) comes out of the water under the astonished eyes of James Bond (Sean Connery) and becomes the most emblematic James Bond Girl.
This meeting takes place on this beach in Jamaica, in Oracabessa. The shellfish fisherwoman is stunned by the arrival of a stranger on this usually wild land. The young woman was quick to threaten Agent 007 with a knife.
She soon decides to trust him, especially when the island’s occupants, Dr. No’s henchmen, decide to attack them by sifting through the surrounding area with bullets.
If the production chose the novel Dr. No as its first film adaptation, it was not by chance. The plot was set exclusively in Jamaica, so the sets were inexpensive.
The swimsuit worn by Ursula Andress, who democratized the bikini all over the world, was sold by Christie’s in 2001 for the modest sum of 41,125 pounds!
James Bond Beach
Also known as Laughing Waters Beach and Roaring River Beach, this little beach in Jamaica was a huge success thanks to the James Bond movie Dr. No.
And on the spot, everything is there to make you think of the famous agent 007. A two-storey Moonraker bar serves delicious cocktails at any time of the day, such as “Vodka Martini Shaken Not Stirred”.
A few movie posters, tourists replaying the scene… of course the setting of the James Bond Beach is far from resembling the 1962 feature film. The locals quickly took possession of the place to increase tourism.
