Max and Lola's beach house was built from scratch on a beach.
The pier to which Max (Pierce Brosnan) ties the inflatable boat was a set piece fabricated just for the film. However, there was once a pier at this location (Sycamore Cove State Beach) in a different location. Occasionally the old pier pilings are visible protruding through the sand.

Talking about joining the movie, Brett Ratner said: "I love caper films. There are so many great films in this genre, but what makes After the Sunset different is that it's a heist movie that has a combination of great relationships, heart and comedy."

When Max and Stan are fishing on the boat Max catches a shark, once Stan touches it and finding out it is still alive he shoots it several times while telling it the Mirada rights. The bullets should have gone through the fish and penetrated the floor and hull of the ship. Next scene you see them pulling into the dock with seemingly no issues with the bullet penetrations.
