The series is set on Cousins Beach, where ‘Belly’ and Jeremiah and their families visit every summer. However, Cousins Beach doesn’t actually exist.

Writer Jenny Han told Amazon Prime she ‘had a lot of beaches’ in mind when writing the story, saying in an interview with Today she was inspired by Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, the Hamptons, and Nags Head in North Carolina.
