Situated in northeast South Carolina, Myrtle Beach is a major East Coast holiday destination, with vacation rentals scattered along the coast, a midst large dunes and sea grasses. As the main city centre for the Grand Strand, a nearly 100-kilometre long stretch of coastline, Myrtle Beach is home to wide, sandy beaches that are ideal for swimming, sunbathing, and building sandcastles. In and around Myrtle Beach, a number of recreational pursuits are on offer, including: surfing at Myrtle Beach State park; boating, paddling, and fishing along the Intracoastal Waterway; hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding on trails and paved paths; and, playing golf at over 100-locally based award-winning courses.
Steeped in the colourful history of the storied American South, Myrtle Beach offers Southern culture in its plantation tours, regional cuisine, and arts scenes. Supporting a number of art galleries, museums, and performance venues, as well as the Brookgreen Gardens—with the largest collection of outdoor American sculptures—Myrtle Beach is equally blessed in terms of its recreational and cultural activities.
Myrtle Beach offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is accessible from its International Airport, or from Charleston, a two hours’ drive.+ More
