Where is Welcome to Eden filmed? We discuss the popular Netflix series and its filming locations. We do not discuss spoilers. 

Netflix series Welcome to Eden was initially titled Bienvenidos a Edén and is a Spanish thriller created by Joaquín Górriz and Guillermo López Sánchez.

The popular show follows Zoa and four other young people who are invited to an exclusive party on a secret island through social media, a plot which already has a lot of red flags if you ask me.

The party, organized by a new brand of drink (no, it’s not Prime), promises to deliver them the time of their lives. However, the supposed paradise ends the exact opposite as the truth of their visit unfolds.

On the plus side, there are a lot of beautiful sets and scenery on display, leading us to the question that everyone is asking, where was the series Welcome to Eden filmed?

Where was Welcome to Eden filmed – a breakdown of filming locations

Puerto del Carmen, Spain

A lot of the main location work would be done in this beautiful location. The town lies on the southeast coast of the island of Lanzarote and was an ideal location for much of the production.

For season 1, the cast and crew would find themselves on the beach at Playa Chica, but it seems that it was not plain sailing as planned shots on the Caletón Blanco beach would not go ahead as issues regarding the required filming permits meant the crew was not allowed to continue working where they had planned.

Barcelona, Spain

The show is a Spanish production, so it’s no surprise that the production team shot a significant part of the show in Barcelona.

This stunning city is situated on Spain’s Northeastern coast and is the capital of Catalonia, known for its architecture, art, and beautiful scenery.

Aragon, Teruel 

Other cities in Spain would be used for some locations, including Teruel, located in the autonomous community of Aragon.

Oddly, this area is often associated with some harsh weather and is not highly populated, but it was one of the locations the production team knew would work for certain shots for the show.

Don’t confuse Aragon the area with Aragorn from Lord of the Rings, as I did, and spend an hour looking for a connection between the two, as there isn’t one.

Donostia, San Sebastian

The rugged yet beautiful landscape of San Sebastián was used to film several scenes. Also known as Donostia–San Sebastián, the city and municipality is located in the Basque Autonomous Community and lies on the coast of The Bay of Biscay, making this another amazing beach for those island scenes.
