Visit San Monique

Welcome to sunny San Monique, the fictional Caribbean island from Live And Let Die (1973). It may first look like a tropical paradise, but this destination hides a big secret.

Presided over by Prime Minister Dr. Kananga, San Monique is the growing base for hidden opium poppy fields. Kananaga leads a double life as Mr. Big, underworld boss and head of the chain of Fillet of Soul clubs. Creating a pipeline for heroin into the US, his devious plan is to flood the country with opiates and then monopolise the drug market. 

Fancy a visit? Go to the sinister paradise and take home a tourist souvenir with our exclusive range of San Monique t-shirts showing the nation's flag - available in three tropical colours.
