Summer has arrived.  Which means it’s time for you to depart.

You need the right vacation spot. Somewhere far away.  Somewhere sunny.

Maybe even somewhere with palm trees, Keira Knightley and a private cache of rum?

Here are five summer vacation spots from film & TV that you should consider for your next getaway.


1. Lord Howe Island – New South Wales, Australia

Lord Howe Island Australia The Shallows

Seen In: The Shallows (2016)
Selling Point: With a population of only 360 people, this little slice of paradise is perfect for those who enjoy their privacy (but not great for those with a fear of sharks).


2. Turtle Bay Resport – Oahu Island, Hawaii

Turtle Bay Resort Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Seen In: Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
Selling Point: Between the luxurious golf course and the fine dining options, you’re sure to find something to do – but we do recommend showing up with a believable sob story to tell.  They might comp you one of their premiere ocean villas.


3. Castell de Santa Florentina – Barcelona, Spain

Castell de Santa Florentina Game of Thrones

Seen In: Game of Thrones
Selling Point: The Throne Hall, with its magnificent decorations and imposing medieval atmosphere, is a popular spot for local weddings.  Just be careful who you invite.


4. Angel Falls – Bolivar State, Venezuela

Angel Falls Venezuela Point Break

Seen In: Point Break (2015)
Selling Point: This is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall.  It’s a tough climb, but worth the risk – after all, you can’t beat that view.


5. Guincho Beach – Lisbon, Portugal

Guincho Beach Portugal On Her Majesty's Secret Service


Seen In: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)
Selling Point: This secluded beach has ideal conditions for surfing, so grab your board and pitch a tent at any of the nearby campsites.  But be nice to the locals during your stay – they’re a temperamental bunch.
