Colonial Place is a residential neighborhood in Norfolk, Virginia. It is a peninsula bordered by 38th Street on the south, and surrounded on three sides by the Lafayette River. It is a relatively racially mixed area that includes mostly single family homes and a few apartment buildings. Many large homes front the water and Mayflower Road arches around the shore of the river.

The Colonial Place Historic District is a national historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. It encompasses 1,090 contributing buildings and 4 contributing sites in a primarily residential section of Norfolk. It is a middle-class and upper middle-class residential neighborhood that largely developed during the period 1903-1941.

James Bond Beach is a beach that sits on a small peninsula at Oracabessa Bay, about 10 miles (16 km) from Ocho Rios on Jamaica's north coast. The beach has brightly painted changing rooms, a water sports centre, a bar, and a restaurant. It is surrounded by crystal clear water on three sides, and the mountains of St Mary reach straight down to the sea, a sight which serves as the beach's backdrop. Its expansive lawns are a regular venue for concerts by international artists such as Rihanna, Ziggy Marley, and Lauryn Hill.

Scenes from the James Bond movie Dr. No were filmed at the beach. The two-story Moonraker bar, open on all sides, can hold up to 200 people; however, the only time it becomes full is during occasional jazz, blues, soca, and reggae concerts. The Bond-related décor is subdued, obvious only in the names of movies painted on small bamboo pieces that hang over the first-floor bar. There are no Bond souvenir stands. Celebrity friends of owner Chris Blackwell are known to stop by.
