Surfside Beach, South Carolina

A Town Where Quality Time Comes Easy

Incorporated in 1964, Surfside Beach has long been known throughout the Grand Strand as a “family beach.” For a game of tennis, bocce, shuffleboard and much more, you don’t have to look further than the town’s seven public parks. Surfside’s pristine beaches are cleaned daily and supervised by lifeguards and police, and there are several beach access points that offer showers, restrooms and accessible ramps for persons with disabilities. In 2016, the Surfside Beach town council signed a proclamation to make Surfside Beach the first autism-friendly travel destination, thus further establishing their reputation as a beach for families.
