The opening scene in which the girls hop from bar to bar is clearly shot in Cape Town, South Africa, along Camps Bay promenade. The first bar is Café Caprice and the second is The Grand (previously Opium on the Beach). The beach on which they are sitting when they first meet the boys is on the Atlantic Sea Board as well.

The crew mention that the yacht is registered in Panama and therefore falls under Panamanian laws when in international waters, the port of registry on the aft of the yacht is visible, and it is mentioned as "Durban" which is in fact South Africa. The ship cannot therefore be Panamanian registered. See more »

I only watched this because it was on Film 4 last night, and wanted to see if it deserved the bad reviews, well it most certainly did.
I am astounded that Channel 4 saw fit to invest in this vile film that just set out to shock.
It also worries me that we have sunk as low as this in terms of humanity to consider this as entertainment,I love horror movies, but this had no redeeming features whatsoever.
As an aside, if the people portrayed in this film are an accurate representation of young Britons abroad, then I'm glad I don't bother with run of the mill holiday resorts with the binge drinking and all that goes with it.
