There are so many reasons to visit the famous James Bond Beach located in Oracabessa, Jamaica. It is a very ptretty beach and perfect for a family getawaya and great for couples. It is about twenty minutes drive from downtown Ocho Rios. It has two little beaches on opposite sides, very peaceful and gorgeous.
Adjacent to the beach is the Goldeneye Estate in Oracabessa (Jamaica's best kept secret) originally owned by the creator of James Bond, Ian Fleming. He bought the estate next to Golden Clouds (a Luxurious Villa) and built his house on the cliff overlooking the private beach. Ian Fleming created James Bond here and many of his fourteen novels were also written here. The Golden Clouds which is next to the Goldeneye Estate has been host to numerous celebrities and has attracted many famous residents such as, Bob Marley who later owned the Goldeneye Estate but then sold it to his record producer, Chris Blackwell. Scenes from the classic James Bond movie, "Dr No" were shot on this beach and the GoldenEye is now the title of the seventeenth James Bond movie.
