If you're craving a beach vacation or just a trip to somewhere warm but don't have time to travel right now, why not try a Netflix movie set in one of those locations instead?

Whether it's the tropics of the Caribbean or a deserted island in the middle of nowhere, these movies all have one thing in common: sun and warmth. Not all the movies are feel-good ones though — we had to include some thrillers! So scroll through and find the location and genre of your choice and prepare to be transported.
