EVER since its premiere on June 17, The Summer I Turned Pretty has been every romantics’ summer dream flick.
The beautiful series not only captures the breezy and romantic summer love between characters, but also beautiful scenery.
Where is The Summer I Turned Pretty filmed?
As the adaptation of Jenny Han’s top-selling novel, originally published more than a decade ago, the series has rose to immediate stardom ever since its premiere.
Cousins Beach, which is the main romantic scenery in the series, is unfortunately not a real place.
“I had a lot of beaches in my head and I think that’s part of the reason why people can read the book and feel like [Cousins Beach] is their beach,” shared Han with Prime Video.
The actual location of the filming took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, including Carolina Beach, Fort Fisher, and Padgett Station, per Wilmington and Beaches Convention & Visitors Bureau.

What is The Summer I Turned Pretty about?
The series revolves around Isabel “Belly” Conklin, who has been visiting the Cousins Beach every summer since her birth, to spend some time with her mom’s best friend and their family.
The magical Cousins Beach builds heartfelt love triangles, and Belly is surrounded by summer romance as she finally turns 16.
The series captures Belly’s personal growth, new romance, summer beach life, and relationships with others, and gradually exhibits her bloom throughout the story.
“I love there being sort of two delicious choices, and then no matter what, you will feel devastated because you can’t have both,” shared Han with National Public Radio.

“And this particular love triangle is juicy, I think, in part because it’s with two brothers, and they’ve all known each other their whole lives.”
“And I would say each brother provides something different for her and answers a different, like, desire or need,” continued Han.
