Disability Resources at The Beach

Myrtle Beach, The Beach, is a place where you can belong, a place to relax, and a place to be your true self with the people you love most. We know that traveling with disabilities can be challenging, and we, along with the City of Myrtle Beach, strive to equip you with the resources you need to enjoy the beach vacation of your dreams at The Beach. 

The City of Myrtle Beach provides a multitude of accessible beach access points and offers beach wheelchairs for those who need them free of charge. These beach wheelchairs have large tires that can easily maneuver on the sand as well as a standard wheelchair seat.
