James Bond 007 Bahamas Getaways

 

To celebrate the British spy 007’s 50th birthday and the release of the latest James Bond movie Skyfall, we are sharing with you those memorable Bahamas locations featured in the blockbuster movies over the years with our James Bond 007 Bahamas getaways.

James Bond 007 Bahamas Getaways

Sir Sean Connery in the Bahamas

The Bahamas has enjoyed a long relationship with the Jame Bond movie franchise going back some 47 years so its only fitting to celebrate 007’s golden anniversary in the Bahamas.  As the Bahamas is the embodiment of exotic and exciting destinations. 

I am hoping that as we celebrate this amazing franchise that has grossed over $15 billion from 22 movies that you will seize the opportunity to release the “Bond” in you and come see us in the Bahamas.
