Let’s have a throwback to over a decade ago with the movie “The Last Song” starring Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. This psychological film by Miley Cyrus has brought viewers to many different humanistic messages, from father and son bond, young love, and maturity. Adapted from the novel of the same name by American writer Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song is Miley’s second feature film since Hannah Montana The Movie.

The setting of this humanistic film was on Tybee Island, Georgia, near Savannah, Georgia. The Last Song was the first film to be shot on Tybee Island. 

Taking advantage of the peaceful rural areas in Georgia with many beautiful natural scenes, female director Julie Anne Robinson used many panoramic views to create a sense of immensity. Romantic scenes on the beach with the image of rustling reeds were other factors attracting young audiences of The Last Song. 

Impressively, the film crew created a light yellow tone throughout the film. They set the lighting composition and the color scheme of the actors’ clothes and the surrounding scenery carefully and consistently, bringing beautiful footage.

So where was The Last Song filmed? Fasten your belt, and let’s visit the mesmerizing filming mecca on this stunning island.

Where was The Last Song filmed in the opening scene? It is the shores of Tybee Island Beach, where two young lovers meet for the first time. Will (Liam Hemsworth) is playing beach volleyball when he accidentally bumps into Ronnie (Miley Cyrus), spilling Ronnie’s strawberry shake on her. In this somewhat embarrassing first meeting, Will has a favorable impression of this girl. Conversely, Ronnie is indifferent to this guy. She shrugs him off and walks away while many girls out there are crazy about this hot boy.

This background appears again when the duo plays on the beach after falling for each other.

The place is where Will met Ronnie again after their “memorable” first encounter. In the scene at North Beach Bar & Grill, the two only talk to each other for a moment, though Will has been watching Ronnie for a while before, even skipping hanging out with friends to approach this unsociable girl.

Combined with a Caribbean flair, North Beach Bar & Grill’s menu includes local, sustainable seafood and the freshest ingredients. It all makes for a superb menu that will please even the most discerning palates.
