In the thrilling adventure series “Naked And Afraid: Castaways,” nine brave participants are divided into trios, each assigned to explore distinct terrains on the same island. They’ll embark on a journey through a sun-kissed beach, a twisted mangrove swamp, and a dense, mysterious jungle. Their collective mission? To converge at a common extraction point on the 21st day and signal a boat for rescue.
The show “Naked and Afraid” has ventured to every continent except the icy lands of Antarctica. Its latest series unfolded in the wilds of Albuquerque, northern New Mexico, but its roots lie in the United States, primarily in the Atchafalaya Basin. Let’s take a peek into the filming location of “Castaways.”
Where Is Naked And Afraid: Castaways Filmed?
“Naked and Afraid: Castaways” was shot on the fringes of the enigmatic Bermuda Triangle. The contestants were left stranded on a tropical Pacific island devoid of maps, tools, weapons, or even clothing. It’s worth noting that the Pacific Ocean, where this adventure unfolds, is Earth’s largest and deepest ocean division, renowned for its isolation.
Though the Pacific Ocean as a whole holds the title of Earth’s largest and deepest ocean, it’s the central section—where our contestants were left to survive, that’s most notorious for its isolation.
The backdrop for the show was the woodlands of Albuquerque, northern New Mexico, but the heart of production beats in the United States, specifically in the Atchafalaya Basin. This Louisiana Wetland is the nation’s largest swamp, a labyrinth of twisting bayous, rivers, and the grandest river swamp in America.
Additionally, the filming crew has pitched their tents in Florida and Alabama. The latest spin-off, “Last Man Standing,” took place in the breathtaking Oribi Gorge in South Africa.
Where To Watch Naked And Afraid: Castaways?
“Naked and Afraid: Castaways” is available on the Discovery Channel. If you’re looking for more viewing options without cable, channels like Philo, FuboTV, and Hulu + Live TV have got you covered.
