Google Maps Locates King Kong’s Skull Island

In a clever marketing strategy, Google Maps has marked the location of Kong's home of Skull Island, and included a new website with additional information.

Ever wanted to take a trip to Skull Island just to see if maybe King Kong is there after all? Well now it looks like all you’ll need is the transportation. The fictional island featured in the upcoming film, Kong: Skull Island, is currently on Google Maps. According to this, Skull Island is located about 3000 miles west of the coasts of Ecuador and Peru.

In addition to just visualizing the location, users can view pictures supposedly from Kong’s homeland. Take a look at the screenshot below, or click here to experience it for yourself!

More information about the island can be found at This website includes audio recordings from characters in the movie along with field reports, a photo journal, a cryptozoology, and more information about locations on the island. It’s a pretty cool interactive marketing strategy if you ask me.

If you decide not to take the trip over to Skull Island (I don’t blame you), then you can still experience it second hand when Kong: Skull Island premieres on March 10. Here’s the synopsis for the movie:

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, Thomas Mann, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham, and Terry Notary in mo-cap as Kong himself.
