Fresh water spring
|Behind the scenes|
- "There's a fresh water spring on this island. We can resupply there, and get back to shooting each other later."
- ―Will Turner[src]
Death of the KrakenEdit
Not much is known about the island prior to the Kraken's death, but it was well known for its fresh water spring. After Lord Cutler Beckett gained control of Davy Jones' heart, he ordered Davy Jones to have the beast killed. And so the Kraken was killed and left on its resting place in Black Sand Beach.
Betrayal in the islandEdit
Later, Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa and most of the crew of the Black Pearl arrived at this island following their return from Davy Jones' Locker. In search of water and other needed supplies, the crew happened upon the corpse of the Kraken. They soon found a second corpse: that of Steng, an East India Trading Company agent killed by Sao Feng. His body contaminated the island's fresh water spring.
Aboard on the Empress, Sao Feng launched an ambush on the Black Pearl offshore. Seeing these turn of events, Sao Feng's men, led by Tai Huang, took Jack, Barbossa, and the rest of the crew of the Pearl hostage. Feng delivered Sparrow to Lord Beckett, though ultimately forming a truce with Barbossa and allowing the Black Pearl to escape. Jack Sparrow escaped from the HMS Endeavour to the Pearl during the skirmish. The Endeavour was damaged during Sparrow's escape to the Pearl, forcing the crew to repair the main mast before giving chase.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Black Sand Beach was filmed in Londonderry Beach of Dominica in the production of At World's End.
- In the first screenplay draft of At World's End, this island is referred to as Black Sand Island.
- This island never made an appearance in the At World's End video game. So in the game, the Kraken's corpse rested within Davy Jones' Locker.
