“The Bahamas was just terrific. Bloody hard work, but terrific”, says Martin Campbell, the director of Casino Royale. Not only did the 2006 James Bond film rejuvenate the franchise, it also marked the return of His Majesty’s most loyal secret agent to The Bahamas. Whether the country and its islands provides by way of glamorous location, transcendent beaches or the exalted blues of it clear waters, The Bahamas has seen cinematic James Bond visit no less than 007 times! Thunderball, Never Say Never Again, Casino Royale, and underwater in You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only and The World Is Not Enough; indication enough for The Bahamas to be considered 007’s favourite destination, as this book will prove.
