Extreme Activity Guide to Myrtle Beach

  By  Visit Myrtle Beach

Make a great day in the Myrtle Beach area's sun-laden tropics with a physically-challenging day tailored to your favorite exercise activities. There is so much to do! Start the morning with a swim in your resort's pool or in the ocean. Take your surfboard or bodyboard and ride the waves in and out on our white sandy beaches.

Take a long walk on Ocean Boulevard and see the sights! Anywhere from North Myrtle Beach right down to Garden City Beach, there are so many sidewalks to enjoy a brisk walk along our beautiful oceanfront.

Rent a kayak and paddle along the intracoastal waterway, coastal marsh, estuary, or oceanfront. Go with a guided group or off with a friend. Get that fantastic core and upper body pumping as you make broad strokes in the natural beauty of the coastline. You'll be glad you did.


Play golf to your heart's content at one of over 100 premier world-class golf resorts! Try Barefoot Resort or Grande Dunes for an incredible day on the links.

Go horseback riding on the beach with Inlet Point Plantation Stables in North Myrtle Beach! This popular experience is top-rated on Trip Advisor.

Go on a deep-sea fishing charter and take home that huge grouper for dinner!

Ride your bicycle up and down Ocean Boulevard or along one of the area bike trails. Take your bike to our State Parks' gorgeous shady wooded trails at Myrtle Beach State Park or Huntington Beach State Park and ride for hours in a peacefully-preserved maritime forest of pure South Carolina treasure!

The Myrtle Beach area also offers many opportunities for various seasonal 5k runs and marathons, as we are quickly becoming known as a runner's paradise. We also have many great public parks, State Parks, and green spaces for runners.
