Oceanfront Resorts in Myrtle Beach with the Best Beach Access

  By  Ashley Daniels

The Myrtle Beach coastline is lined with spectacular resorts, but we have decided to narrow them down to those oceanfront resorts that boast a little more private beachfront access in quieter sections of the beach and less crowds for guests who prefer that. Check out our top choices before you check in!

featured North Beach Resort & Villas
1. North Beach Resort & Villas

Located on a 7.5-acre island between the Atlantic Ocean and Whitepoint Swash, North Beach Resort & Villas towers over a sublime beach area. If that’s not enough, the property also offers a 2.5-acre, Caribbean-themed pool complex that raises the bar on relaxation, featuring swimming pools, an outdoor pool escape with private cabanas, swim-up pool bar, and lazy river. For even more relaxation, you can schedule a massage or facial at the onsite Cinzia Spa. And, for dinner, make reservations at the property’s award-winning steakhouse, 21 Main.

3. SeaSide Resort

Also in North Myrtle Beach, the oceanfront SeaSide Resort offers spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos laid out with a fully equipped kitchen and private balcony. In addition to access to a wide-open beach, the resort offers a full list of amenities to make your stay carefree and stress-free, including two pools (indoor and outdoor), a lazy river, two hot tubs, and a fitness center.

featured Beach Cove Resort
4. Beach Cove Resort

Just as its name implies, Beach Cove in North Myrtle Beach will give you access to unlimited beach time. Also featured on the property are four pools, including the tropical oceanfront pool deck that hosts three outdoor pools and a one-foot-deep kiddie pool, a kiddie pool beneath a mushroom fountain, a 350-foot-long lazy river, three oceanfront whirlpools, and indoor pool and whirlpool. Also inside and ready to entertain on rainy days is Beach Cove’s Town Center, home to the Winner’s Circle arcade, Grab N’ Go Grill & Coffee Bar, the casual Tipsy Turtle Beach Bar, and Tradewinds Café for a Southern-style breakfast buffet.


The northern end of Myrtle Beach is the place to be – especially at Caravelle’s renowned block-long poolscape that stretches from the beach access to the boulevard, site of a large heated pool, whirlpool, lazy river, more shallow kiddie lazy river, and the Wild Water Pool splash area. The resort also features a game room, the Marco Polo Pool Bar and Grill, and Pirate’s Cove Ice Cream and Sandwich Shop.


Feel the ocean breeze at Carolina Winds, tucked along the northern section of Myrtle Beach. A wide variety of accommodations await, from one-bedroom, angled oceanfront suites to three-bedroom condos that are each uniquely decorated for a distinct design that feels comfortable. Aside from being steps from the sand, take advantage of their massive 120-foot oceanfront outdoor pool that ranges from 3 feet to 10.5 feet deep – one of the biggest pools at the beach! There’s also a large outdoor kiddie pool and one inside, plus a lazy river, an oceanfront lawn for relaxing, access to tennis courts at the elite Grande Dunes Tennis Club, and the onsite Beach Pit Restaurant and Bar or the Snack Shack.

featured Sea Watch Resort
7. Sea Watch Resort

This resort tucked onto the serene north end of the beach has a lot to offer besides a peace-and-quiet beachfront for the entire family: six pools (two that are covered and heated), two lazy rivers, breakfast and snacks at Captain’s Cove and Captain’s Nook, the Loggerhead Beach playground, a fire pit for toasting marshmallows at night, a game room, and more.

featured DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront
8. DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront

You’ll feel like you’re on your own island in the newly remodeled and revamped DoubleTree. Set on 27 acres, the oceanfront resort sits on the southern end of Ocean Boulevard next to Myrtle Beach State Park and steps away from white-sand beaches and the Springmaid Pier. Rooms are gloriously updated and you can pamper yourself at the property’s amenities, including the restaurant, two lazy rivers, and indoor and outdoor pools.
