The Murder Mystery 2 Island Location

Murder Mystery 2 Island
The couple is invited by their friend, the Maharajah (played by Adeel Akhtar), to attend his wedding with a French girl, Claudette (Mélanie Laurent), on his private island.

This establishing shot of the island is a CGI composition that seems to be inspired by the scenic Pitons mountains.

The Pitons are two volcanic cones in Saint Lucia, an island in the West Indies in the eastern Caribbean.

Movie magic stunt
After the Spitzs get into the van, they go through the Champs Elysées. The chase scene was also recorded on Rue de Chaillot and Avenue Marceau.

At some point, the van enters the tunnel close to the Arc de Triomphe on Grande Armée Avenue.

Then, somehow it ends up (movie magic!) about 3 miles away from there, at the Port de Montebello with the Notre Dame Cathedral as a backdrop for the scene.
