This was the place where Ian Fleming wrote Goldeneye and hence the name of the beach. You have travel on a dubious broken road off the highway for a mile before you reach the gates to this beach. It costs $20 to get in. The...More

What can I say? Oracabessa is perfection, and James Bond Beach is my go to beach to sit and relax. The views of the mountainside in the distance and the vast ocean does it for me. I sit back, chill, and enjoy the music that...More

We stayed for about 10 mins. Big snorkelling group which took up most of the small beach. Loungers were falling apart, sand flies and couples enjoying the herb put us off. $10 entrance per person - you live and learn.

The bar/restaurant area is lovely. The beach is a bit small, but nice. Everyone who worked here was very nice, as was just about everyone we ran into! It was never crowded when we visited it and you can rent all kinds of gear there.

I couldn’t say more good things about James Bond Beach and the Moonraker bar. Maybe because it was slightly off season, there was no one else at the beach or the bar besides a couple of locals. Super cheap at $5 / per person to...More

This beach is on the GoldenEye property(separate from the resort), but Mr. Blackwell has this beach open to the public as a giveback to the community. My wife and I took a ride over to see it on a weekday, so it wasn't crowded, but...More

This beach is a stones throw away from Goldeneye and is all part of the same complex. It's the beach that has the famous scene, where the model is coming out of the sea with a shell in her hand and Sean Connery waiting.
