James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

3.6
#2 of 55 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).

  • Beautiful to see this iconic island but lots of down sides. Very crowded, no real swimming spots. Tons of people taking selfies, hard to even see the scenery. I didn’t mind that so much. I expected it...  more »

  • Visit-for show. Trip James Bond island was part of the sightseeing tour, left the most vivid impressions. In fact-just block, which is surrounded by tourists. As you can see once, but no more.

  • Recently been here and it's really wonderful to visit lime rock cave. The Island itself speak nature. It's must visit place if you go Phuket, Thailand
  • Been there several times and every time absolutely delighted with the views and scenery. Even when (some) rain or cloudy skies, it is stunning. There are many tours operators to take you to see the amazing topography and sights of Phangna Bay, the cost normally included hotel pick up by mini bus, refreshments at the pier, the boat tour, an English speaking guide, transfers to James Bond Island by boat, lunch, guided canoe adventures into Hong Island and Panak Island and soft drink and water and return to hotel. The scenery is magnificent. We will definitely return to explore further.
  • Superb place . I wish could be here for a longer period of time but couldn't as we were given only 30ins to be there and where those 30 mins disappeared i still have no idea. This was one of the 5 islands that were included in our day pakage with this boat people .
  • 300baht per person!!! Wonderful national Park but many people.... waiting for one good foto..!!!
  • Phang Nga Bay - one of best heritage place in Thailand has to offer, experience it first hand and shouldn't miss it out on your visit!
