Make boat tour around the island with your charter yacht to exploring its hidden caves, here’s what you need to know before you explore the mysterious James Bond Island.
James Bond Island is best known as the location featured in the 1995 movie “GoldenEye”. The island got its name after the debut of the movie, when an excited James Bond exclaimed “James Bond Island!” while seeing the stunning view of the island.
The island has another interesting history though. It was once used as an ammunition depot by the British Royal Navy during World War II. The British Navy used the island as a supply and refuelling base for their submarines so that it could stay up with the enemy and avoid detection by radar. When the war finally ended, the island was disbanded and was left abandoned. In the 1950s, Phuket was being developed as a tourist destination, and the island was purchased by the State for development as a resort. However, due to the high costs and technical difficulties, the development came to a halt.
Exploring the Hidden Caves
While the main attraction of James Bond Island is undoubtedly the stunning view of the island, one cannot visit Thailand without exploring the hidden caves. From exploring the subterranean river to exploring the cave with bats, this is an experience you must not miss. The local tour company that takes tourists to the island would offer an all-inclusive tour to exploring the caves. The tour would include a boat ride to the caves, where you can explore the caves with an experienced guide. However, if you would rather explore the caves on your own, you can hire a local guide to show you around the caves. The caves are not only visited for their stunning views, but also for the bat colony that lives inside the caves. The bat colony is one of the most unique and interesting wildlife in Thailand. The bat colony is home to more than 50 species of bats. As the name suggests, the bat colony is also home to several types of bats that can be found in only one or two locations in the world.
