James Bond Beach, Ocho Rios

2.7
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Ocho Rios
Pretend you’re in the movies on the white sands of James Bond Beach, a picturesque spot with an eclectic cultural history. Scenes from the James Bond movie “Dr No” were filmed here and the character’s creator, Ian Fleming, lived nearby at his “Golden Eye Villa” while writing the novels. Hop on a boat tour to go and see the villa along with breathtaking views of the surrounding bay. Owned by music mogul and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, the beach also hosts a lively mix of annual music events, most of which take place at the two-storey “Moonraker” beach bar, which also offers a delicious menu of fresh fish and seafood to sample. The beach itself boats a dramatic backdrop of the St Mary mountains, surrounded on three sides by glimmering turquoise waters, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. You can plan Ocho Rios trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Where to stay in Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios Bay Beach and Malards Bay--both hugging the northern coastline--serve as the most popular areas to stay, with an abundance of hostels, hotels, condominiums, and luxury beach resorts jostling for space along the seafront. Look east along Route A3 for a chance to stay at a quieter, less-touristy resort or private rental.
