- Plan a Dawn Visit: The best time to visit any famous spot is either very late in the evening or at sunrise; in this case, as the island is most splendid sopping in sunlight, a pre-dawn trip will be most rewarding.
- Check in When the Island Undisturbed: Arriving early in the morning on the James Bond Island means, you will not find the usualexcitement, there will be a couple of visitors sweeping up around the souvenir stalls and the ticket window will remain closed.

- Spend Time Relaxing On the Beach:Relish being the main guests at a site that would some way or another overflow with heaps of travellers. Enjoy the early morning sun, take a seat on the shoreline unwind and perhaps feel like James Bond.
