With its striking limestone cliffs, hidden coves, and pristine beaches. This very unique island caught the eye of Bond producers years ago. This prompted them to film the James Bond movies on the island. The famous movie that was filmed there was, The Man With The Golden Gun, it stood in for the fictional Island of Khao Phing Kan where Bond’s friend winds up getting captured.

Also in the movie “In Tomorrow Never Dies”, Bond arrives by boat at the island’s famous limestone climbing beach that’s surrounded by towering cliffs on three sides.  Which is what made the island more famous than what it was back then. He explores the unique beach setting and emerges from between two “pillars” in one of the film’s most memorable scenes. Instantly recognizable to Bond fans, this beach alone is worth the trip, and many visitors adore the island and enjoy being on the island, shopping, and getting many photos on the island so they can show how beautiful the island.

Getting There & What to Bring
To visit Khai Nai Island, you’ll need to book a long-tail boat or speedboat tour from Phuket, Krabi, or Khao Lak. A lot of tour companies can book for you or you can use Google to find a good booking agent to book for you. Most tours hit several picturesque islands and beaches in a single-day trip. This means waking up extra early to get on your bus and then to the pier to catch your boat to nearby islands, and also some of these use speedboats as well from island to island. Once you arrive at each island you can go ahead and begin your photo ops on each island.

But some things we must remember are, when packing for the island, be sure to bring proper swimwear, aqua socks or sandals, sunscreen, a hat, snacks, and plenty of drinking water. Even though most boats provide ice water and ice drinks, some people opt to bring their favorite water. A dry-water bag helps keep phones and cameras safe, those are very important to bring with you, if you do not like to carry anything outside of the boat that will get wet.
