James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

3.6
#2 of 36 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).

  • James Bond Island was on my ‘places to see list’ whilst visiting Thailand. I’m glad I went. Got some great pictures and some lovely views. We went fairly early in the day to avails the crowds which wa...  more »
  • Nice but too many people, with the fair you can take pictures, it is not a beach where you can stay sunbathing awhile since the island is small and the amount of people will not allow it.

  • 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
  • Awesome place of my life... Don't forget to go James bond island when you are in Phuket... ( Missing that place so much 😥 )
  • Pretty packed, but the place is a must. Many souvenir stands. Beautiful viewpoint.
  • 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.
