James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

3.6
#2 of 38 in Parks in Phang Nga Province
Take a tour around James Bond Island, a hideaway used by one of 007's many antagonists in the 1974 film "The Man with the Golden Gun." Since the shady Francisco Scaramanga hid out here and the place was cemented into film history, the island has had a name change and the iconic islet featured in the film--a top-heavy limestone crop--has been near the top of visitors' must-see lists. Tour groups run a range of activities in the areas surrounding the islands. Consider a canoe trip around the small islet Ko Tapu (note that concerns about erosion have put an end to motorized boat use here). By using our Ao Phang Nga National Park vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to James Bond Island and other attractions in Ao Phang Nga National Park.

    The James Bond island is offered in many tour packages. As it is offered by many tour operators, many toerists will visit this point. It is tough to make a picture without other people on it. Furtherm...  more »

    We made a trip to James Bond Island with BJ Canoeing Tour and we were amazed, take this tour if you can. Our guide for the day, Ibrahim, was very knowledgeable and explained many things aboard the speedboat (very practical because lets see more place than big boats who cannot tie up on the beaches). The Thai who will pick you up for a canoe ride are adorable, ours has even created a ring from two small leaves of Palm, memorable! James Bond island is quite impressive to see, this rock that fate of no part is mesmerizing. Not much more to see on the island if it is the beauty of the landscape. Avoid the traps to tourists who are on the beach, not interest. To see and hear!

    The blast of my life! I don't know if it's the trip or the island itself, but I had one of the best days in my life. Luckily, we didn't face any rain incident. The souvenir market was nothing though. I don't like to be touched I guess LOL

    A beautiful Island in North of Phuket. You can rent a private boat for 1300 Bhat round trip. it would be a full day trip if you come from Phuket. Have your water, some snack and camera in your backpack.

    If your a fan of James Bond then this is a must do. It's a small island with a small shopping market. You have a short walk over undulating paths, but nothing to strenuous. You'll probably only be here for 30mins to an 1hr tops. Shame the sea isn't clear, but it's still beautiful scenery nonetheless. Our longtail boat took us to some interesting areas on the way, including a bat cave and canoeing areas.
