Region in southern Spain where, near the city of Cádiz, filmmakers shot the scene of lovely Jinx (Halle Berry) coming out of the surf in a stunning orange bikini and meeting James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) in Die Another Day. The scene, actually set in Cuba, was written by Robert Wade and Neil Purvis as a nod to the famous introduction of Ursula Andress in Dr. No.

However, weather problems nearly destroyed the moment. For a few days, the temperature in normally sunny Spain was reduced to fifty degrees, with a forty-mile-per hour wind velocity—not the most ideal circumstances for a frolic in the surf by Ms. Berry. Fortunately for the production, the sun came out and 007 and Jinx had their day in the sun.
