A lot of the shots - especially the night time ones - used Miley Cyrus's double. Cyrus was still technically a minor at the time of filming so the number of hours she was able to work was strictly limited.
Miley Cyrus worked with a dialect coach to help lose her Southern accent. She also learned to play a classical piano.
Nicholas Sparks wrote the screenplay for this movie as a vehicle for Miley Cyrus, and then adapted the novel from it. The novel was released shortly before the movie.
Liam Hemsworth's greatest fear was that he would not convince as a beach volleyball player, never having played the sport before and lying about it in his audition.
Liam Hemsworth won the part in the film after learning that he had lost the title role of Thor (2011) to his older brother, Chris Hemsworth. Liam had only just moved to the States from Australia at that stage and hadn't even gotten around to procuring an American agent.
Liam Hemsworth had to get scuba certification for the film.
Greg Kinnear had to leave the production for several days as his daughter Katie was born.
Miley Cyrus chose the name of her character Ronnie in tribute to her grandfather Ron Cyrus who died in 2006.
The first film Kelly Preston worked on after the death of her son, Jett Travolta.
The turtles proved difficult to work with as they only make their walk to the ocean at dusk. This effectively meant that the crew only had 15 minutes to shoot them before it got too dark, as the turtles didn't respond to artificial light, so it took 4 nights to get the required turtle shots.
Greg Kinnear, Bobby Coleman and Liam Hemsworth all attended workshops on stained glass window making.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth started their widely-publicized relationship during filming.
The church - a pivotal plot point in the movie - was actually a specially built prop. At one point, Miley Cyrus was interested in buying it.
The song "She Will Be Loved" by Maroon 5 is played on the radio. Kelly Preston appeared in the song's music video.
Director Julie Anne Robinson and her cinematographer John Lindley deliberately used a lot of longshots and wide shots to give the film a feeling of a lot of space. This was to emphasize how alone and isolated a lot of the characters feel.
Season 4 of Miley Cyrus's show Hannah Montana (2006) had to go on a slightly longer hiatus due to her filming commitments on The Last Song (2010).
The first movie to be shot and set in Tybee Island.
Tybee Island is a protected landscape. Permission had to be given every time someone had to walk on the dunes. The production found it easier to build their own which were rendered so perfectly and blended in so well with the real natural habitat that they were allowed to remain as part of the terrain after filming had been completed.
Thunderstorms, tropical rainstorms and jellyfish were just some of the natural difficulties the production had to contend with during filming.
The state of Georgia lobbied hard to host the filming, offering all sorts of tax breaks.
