    The Myrtle Beach area is the jewel of South Carolina and is nestled along the mid-Atlantic region of the eastern United States. With 60 miles/100 kilometers of beautiful beaches and an average year-round temperature of 25° Celsius, the Myrtle Beach area is a great place to spend your next holiday in the United States.

    American holidaymakers have long been very familiar with the delights of the Myrtle Beach area but can no longer keep the secret from international visitors who, in increasing numbers, are now finding this stretch of the South Carolina coast.

    As a family destination, the Myrtle Beach area can rival many Florida resorts, not only for its beaches and water sports, but also for the high standards of entertainment, golfdining, and shopping. The long hours of sunshine keep holidaymakers on the beach but after dark, the Myrtle Beach area nightlife buzzes with restaurant conversation, dancing, and shows. A major claim for the Myrtle Beach area is that it is safe and that is borne out by the numbers of retired people and families with children who flock here every year and return again and again.
