Take a tour of James Bond Island in Phuket, Thailand — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. Climbing out of the greenish waters of Phuket, Thailand are the unusual islands of Khao Phing Kan and Ko Tapu. Together, these islands are most commonly referred to as James Bond Island, because of their appearance in The Man with the Golden Gun. In this movie, Ko Tapu, the odd, pillar-like island, was the location of a large weapon. This island does exist in real life, but it is not possible to actually land on the island, though boat tours bring you close. Just a few hundred feet from Ko Tapu is the larger island of Khao Phing Kan.
Though this island has several steep shores, there are beautiful beaches on which to land, with many sights to see.

James Bond Island, known originally and locally as Ko Tapu or Nail Island, found fame through the 1974 Bond film “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
Ko Tapu is a steep rocky monolith, about 20 meters tall. This rock column lies approximately 200 meters offshore of the two-islet pair known as Ko Khao Phingkan.
the later 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies also includes a scene in Phang Nga Bay, close to James Bond Island.
