This is where the famous James Bond scene was filmed! Ursula Andrews in her bikini? There is an entrance fee of 10$ to get on the beach as privately owned

I actually got married on the property back in 2005 and it was just such a spectacular property to be the backdrop to such a beautiful day!

This is one of the most beautiful places . A small waterfall runs into the ocean . Ideal to spend a few hours and swim and even bring a pick nick . Love when there are no tourists. Very peaceful place.

It's a tiny, cozy, jewel in the beach. Great for soaking it all in at the mouth of the river where it reaches the ocean.

I highly recommend this attraction. We were on a glass-bottom boat trip where we did some snorkeling and then visited Laughing Waters. It was so refreshing to dip in the cool fresh water tumbling from the waterfall and then dip in the warm ocean. Very few people there when we visited (and they were mostly local) and we were not...

The most beautiful place I have seen in Jamaica. Tip: it is where the famous scene from Dr. No (the first James Bond movie) where Ursula Andress appears in a bikini out of the water.

Amazing, you have to see it to believe it. Impecable cleanliness. Crustal clear blue water. Soft sinking sand. The ocean is a mixture of hot and cold from the fresh water river that runs into it. It was the highlight of my trip.

We took a private catamaran here...after our guide checked in with the guards, since it's a private beach. We were able to crawl up into the falls for some great pictures, dive in the natural hot tub and see where "that scene" was filmed in Dr. No. Ian Fleming and Bob Marley used to hang out here...I can see why!...

It's a bit cheeky trip advisor putting this beech on here. For those of you who don't know it is the beech in the film 'Dr No' where Honey Ryder walks out of the sea in 'that bikini'. The beech is privately owned and you can't get access to it. I tried.
