On the Tracks of 007: The Bahamas Simon Firth
The latest travel book from FSWL contributor Simon Firth is now available from the On The Tracks of 007 website. The book is filled with anecdotes, travel directions, maps, then and now comparison photos - the ultimate guide to James Bond's adventures in The Bahamas. Foreword by director Martin Campbell. Afterword by production manager Anthony Waye. Cover design by FSWL reader Jeff Marshall.

“The Bahamas was just terrific. Bloody hard work, but terrific”, says Martin Campbell, the director of Casino Royale (2006). 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 (1965), Never Say Never Again (1983), Casino Royale (2006), and underwater in You Only Live Twice (1967), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), For Your Eyes Only (1981) and The World Is Not Enough (1999); indication enough for The Bahamas to be considered 007’s favourite destination, as this book will prove.

Speaking to more than 30 people on both sides of the Productions, location owners and those who helped prepare the locations for filming, Simon Firth answers every question imaginable. Illustrated with images from both the archives of On The Tracks Of 007 and those interviewed from the films’ productions.


Filming James Bond in The Bahamas is the definitive work charting James Bond in film and book as his adventures take you through the beauty and romance of this stunning country.
