    The Myrtle Beach area is the jewel of South Carolina and is nestled along the mid-Atlantic region of the eastern United States. It's the place where time loses its meaning and cares slip away with the tide. Vacationers wake each morning to the bright yellow sun and drift off each evening to the soft sound of the ocean. Each day is filled with a fun adventure, a new memory, and sun-kissed cheeks. With 100km/60 miles of picturesque beaches and an average year-round temperature of 25° Celsius, luscious green palmetto trees, cloudless skies, and a touch of southern comfort, you'll easily understand what makes this place so amazing and why our visitors return to our shores year after year. From entertaining miniature golf to exciting waterparks to fantastic shopping, a vacation to Myrtle Beach offers something memorable for everyone.

    American holiday-makers 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 rivals many Florida resorts, not only for its beaches and watersports, but also for the high standards of entertainmentdining, golf, and shopping. The long hours of sunshine keep holiday-makers on the beach, but after dark, the Myrtle Beach area nightlife buzzes with restaurant conversation, dancing, and shows. We look forward to having you visit the Myrtle Beach area, and we hope you enjoy and savor every minute of your vacation in the Grand Strand.  Please Visit Responsibly.

    VISIT RESPONSIBLY: Please pack your mask as it is recommended at some locations throughout the Grand Strand. Please also pack your patience as many Grand Strand businesses are not fully staffed yet and are doing their best to take care of every guest. Learn more about how to visit Myrtle Beach responsibly!
