Multiple global locations were used for filming locations during the production of the Pirates of the Caribbean films to provide the setting for the Pirates of the Caribbean world. Most locations were used to shoot principal photography with actors; more recently as digital filmmaking has become more common, some locations were shot with no actors present and digitally composited]] into the films to provide a backdrop of a story setting.
Listed below are locations used for filming of the following Pirates of the Caribbean films:
- Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
