|“||Flamingo Bay looked as ridiculously beautiful as every Caribbean island, the colours almost too intense to be true. There was the dazzling blue of the ocean, the immaculate white beaches, the rich, elemental green of the pine trees and rainforest||”|

The senior Drevin had a plan to build a space hotel, but when they threw him over budget, he decided to blow the space station out of orbit and crash land it on Washington D.C. When Alex was informed by MI6 that the pieces from the station would harm earth life, Alex set out into space to stop the explosion.
Flamingo Bay was the base of launches and operations for the building of the orbiting hotel. It's wildlife is extremley limited due to the near constant rocket launches which kill off the plants and animals.
The island is located ten miles off of Barbados in the Caribbean.
