Jamaica’s James Bond

| February 24, 2019

Most of us know that James Bond was connected to Jamaica…courtesy of news.com.au, here’s how…

After visiting Jamaica for a naval conference during World War II, Ian Fleming decided then and there that island life was going to be for him. Three years later, when the war was over, he kept his word and bought a house in Jamaica, where he decided to “swim in the sea and write books”.

From his home, which was called GoldenEye, Fleming penned the James Bond series that brought fame to both him and Jamaica. The first Bond film, Dr. No, was also filmed on location there. Fleming’s house is now a boutique hotel that goes by the name GoldenEye Hotel & Resort, so you can return to the source of where it all started.
