DEATH in Paradise is back on our screens TONIGHT (August 6) and with it comes some idyllic filming locations.
We take a look at the real-life locations used to create this island paradise.
Where is Death In Paradise filmed?
The cast and crew decamped to the French Caribbean region of Guadeloupe to film the murder-fuelled crime show.
Most of the filming takes place on location around the main island's Western side.
Fort Royal Hotel
Located at the northern point of the island, the Langley Fort Royal Hotel features heavily in the show.
Fans of Death In Paradise will recognise the beach and bar from the show, while other scenes have been shot at the hotel itself.
As well as doubling as a filming location, the Fort Royal also doubles as base camp for the cast and crew.
The small town, which is full of colourful shops and restaurants as well as a marina, doubles as Honoré, Saint Marie’s centre.
It’s where the police station and also Catherine’s Bar are located, and where the local market is erected should a storyline require it.
The police station is actually the office of the local priest, who helpfully vacates the premises.
La Perle Beach
The location of DI Goodman’s shack is one of the most beautiful spots on the island, with its miles of unspoilt beach fringed by palm trees.
Between shoots, the shack is taken down to prevent it being washed away – in their winter months the tide comes in and the beach is eroded.
The foundations are still visible, however, and you probably won’t find a more tranquil spot on Guadeloupe.
A short drive from the town of Deshaies is the breathtaking Botanical Gardens.
Featuring a quaint café perched at the top of a waterfall and paths taking you past tropical bird menageries and flamingo pools, it certainly seems like an ideal setting for paradise.
However, as ever its seen its own fair share of death, as it happens to be where DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) was killed in series three.
