List of locations in Pirates of the Caribbean

This is a complete list of islands and other locations in the Pirates of the Caribbean films series. Some locations in the series of films are real, others are fictional. Port Royal and Tortuga are the only locations to appear in more than one of the films in the series.

  • Port Royal: Port Royal was a city located at the end of the Palisadoes at the mouth of the Kingston Harbour, in southeastern Jamaica. Founded in 1518, it was the centre of shipping commerce in the Caribbean Sea during the latter half of the 17th century. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1692 and subsequent fires, hurricanes, flooding, epidemics and another earthquake in 1907.
  • Isla de Muerta: Isla de Muerta is a fictional island featured in the 2003 film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It is a mysterious land where the Black Pearl’s pirate crew hide their looted treasure. It is filled with the cursed Aztec treasure that the pirates returned.
  • Tortuga: Tortuga is a pirate island off the northern coast of Haiti, out of the jurisdiction of the Royal Navy and the East India Trading Company. While it remains a free port where traders can escape the high East India tariffs, it is a dangerous one where illegal transactions are common. Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, in hot pursuit of Captain Hector Barbossa, moor their stolen ship, Interceptor, there to recruit a crew. Their conscripts included Joshamee Gibbs, Anamaria, Cotton, and Marty.
  • Pelegosta: Pelegosto is a fictional island. The relevant scenes were actually filmed on the lush, tropical island of Dominica.
  • Isla Cruces: Isla Cruces is a fictional island. The relevant scenes were actually filmed in Dominica and
  • Singapore: The Singapore of the movies differs markedly from historical Singapore. The modern port of Singapore was founded by Stamford Raffles in 1819. In the period depicted in the movie, there was only a Malay fishing village called Temasek on the island, not the old Chinese city depicted in the film. (See Early history of Singapore.)
  • Davy Jones Locker: Davy Jones’s Locker is a fictional place first mentioned in the film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl by Will Turner. It is a purgatory where anyone sent confronts his personal demons. It is Davy Jones’s favoured punishment for those who attempt to cheat him. Even supernatural beings, such as Calypso, can be sent there, unable to escape while trapped in human form. The only condemned person known to have escaped the Locker is Captain Jack Sparrow. However, as Sao Feng’s map does give directions to World’s End and an exit route from the Locker, it is conceivable that someone else previously escaped.
  • Shipwreck Cove: Shipwreck Cove is an inlet on the fictional Shipwreck Island in the 2007 film, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. The island is unique in that its land mass in the interior is composed entirely of shipwrecks. Shipwreck Cove is considered to be an impregnable fortress, well-supplied, and able to withstand nearly any siege. Shipwreck Cove, the meeting place for the Brethren Court, is also the location of the town of Shipwreck.
  • Parley Sandbar: Also not the actual name. Because Davy Jones can only step on land once every ten years, he and Lord Cutler Beckett meet with Elizabeth Swann and Captain Barbossa there (while Jones stands in a wooden tub filled with water). While there, they swap Will Turner for Jack Sparrow, and Elizabeth vows to Beckett to avenge her father’s death. It is seen only in At World’s End. This sandbar is not something done in a studio. The sandbar itself is a mile or so from Disney’s private island Castaway Cay, which is also the final resting place for the actual movie prop “The Flying Dutchman”.
  • Frozen Ocean: An ocean filled with icebergs and glaciers that the ship that Sao Feng gave the crew must sail through on their quest to rescue Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones’ Locker. The special features on the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End DVD suggested that this may have been the Caspian Sea.
  • Dead Kraken Island/Black Sand Beach: The island that Jack’s crew finds themselves after returning from Davy Jones’ Locker. As the name implies the Kraken is found dead here, killed by Davy Jones at Beckett’s order.
  • Black Sam’s Spit/Rumrunner’s Isle: The island that Jack finds himself marooned on twice and made “governor” of by Barbossa.
  • Caribbean Shoals: Shoals that the crew Interceptor attempted to get to so they could avoid the Black Pearl during a chase, but Barbossa and the cursed pirate crew caught the Interceptor before the crew of the Interceptor made it to the shoals.
  • Sola Fide Beach: A small island in the Caribbean sea that Jack Sparrow found. He marooned Angelica there.
