Exploring the beaches in Myrtle Beach
Things to see in Myrtle Beach
The area’s 60 miles of beach are packed with different activities. All manner of water sports take place out in the ocean—everything from kayaking and scuba diving to windsurfing and parasailing. There are also gentler sports to take part in; the area is renowned as a fishing spot and Myrtle Beach has been the location of many prized catches. It’s also possible to head out on a dolphin-spotting tour. The clear ocean waters are popular with paddlers and swimmers, and there are plenty of freshwater swimming opportunities in the area’s rivers and scenic marshes. Myrtle Beach’s Intracoastal Waterway is another fantastic place to enjoy kayaking, fishing, and sailing in more protected waters. Here you can spot a traditional lighthouse, sprawling marina, and many small harbors scattered along the waterway. Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is in the downtown area of the city—take an evening stroll here and stop off in the lively bars and restaurants.

It’s also a haven for water sports and nearby Surfside Beach is popular with surfers, sand castle builders, and sunbathers. Between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach you’ll find many hotels on the beach at Arcadian Shores. A fairly secluded area, there’s still a great choice of restaurants and bars. An area popular for fishing and golf, Cherry Grove Beach is slightly north of Myrtle Beach’s downtown area.
How to get to Myrtle Beach
Myrtle Beach International Airport is a large commercial hub for domestic and international airlines. There are several car rental businesses located in the airport, but it can be fairly cheap to jump in a cab to head into town. Many visitors drive to Myrtle Beach as the city is well served by the Veterans Highway, Carolina Bays Parkway, and Myrtle Beach Raceway. The closest train station is in Florence, SC—this is 70 miles from Myrtle Beach, so you will need to organize a shuttle bus to get from the station to your beach vacation.
