The ultimate physical and psychological game, Survivor UK, launched on BBC One last month and has seen 18 castaways take part in a variety of brutal challenges on an isolated island.


The new season promised viewers "a compelling test of brains, brawn and betrayal as players compete to outwit, outplay and outlast their rivals", in the hopes of being crowned the winner.

In the episodes, people from all walks of life are marooned in a tropical location where they are divided into two tribes. So far, multiple contestants have been ejected from the island, with things getting more tense every episode.

But where is this tropical location where all the action happens? Read on to find out where Survivor UK 2023 was filmed.

Where was Survivor UK filmed?

The rebooted season of Survivor UK was filmed in the Dominican Republic.

The 18 contestants were marooned to the remote location, with filming taking place over the summer.

Lee, who is one of the remaining castaways on Survivor UK, described the location as "absolutely amazing".

In an exclusive chat with, Lee explained that when he was told where he'd be spending his summer, he knew it was "the real deal".

He said: "I remember I got a call and he said, 'I've got some good news and bad news.' And I was like, 'What's the bad news?' And he's like, 'The bad news is you're going to be spending the summer with me in the Dominican Republic.'

"It was absolutely amazing. I was excited. I was nervous because I'm like, 'Okay, it's not auditions anymore. This is the real deal, and I've got to give it unlike anything I've done in my life.'"
