FANS of Death in Paradise has made a triumphant return to TV for season 11.
The show is popular as much for the incredible storylines as it is for the idyllic filming locations in the Caribbean.
Where is Death In Paradise filmed?
Death In Paradise is largely filmed in the archipelago of Guadeloupe, a French-Caribbean region.
Most of the filming takes place on location around the main island’s Western side.
Fort Royal Hotel
Located at the northern point of the island, the Langley Fort Royal Hotel features heavily in the show.
Fans of Death In Paradise will recognise the beach and bar fr om the show, while other scenes have been shot at the hotel itself.
As well as doubling as a filming location, the Fort Royal also doubles as base camp for the cast and crew.
The small town, which is full of colourful shops and restaurants as well as a marina, doubles as Honoré, Saint Marie’s centre.
It’s where the police station and also Catherine’s Bar are located, and where the local market is erected should a storyline require it.
The police station is actually the office of the local priest, who helpfully vacates the premises.

La Perle Beach
The location of DI Goodman’s shack is one of the most beautiful spots on the island, with its miles of unspoilt beach fringed by palm trees.
Between shoots, the shack is taken down to prevent it being washed away – in their winter months the tide comes in and the beach is eroded.
The foundations are still visible, however, and you probably won’t find a more tranquil spot on Guadeloupe.
A short drive from the town of Deshaies is the breathtaking Botanical Gardens.
Featuring a quaint café perched at the top of a waterfall and paths taking you past tropical bird menageries and flamingo pools, it certainly seems like an ideal setting for paradise.
However, as ever its seen its own fair share of death, as it happens to be where DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) was killed in series three.
