Walk, fish, dine and celebrate a lovely finish to the day with a beautiful sunset, all at the East Coast’s longest wooden pier.

Whether you’re camping in the adjacent Apache Family Campground or simply seeing the sights of Myrtle Beach, a visit to Apache Pier is fun for the whole family. Enjoy a casual stroll along this 1,206-foot (368-meter) wooden pier at the northern end of the beach. Cast a line for flounder, enjoy a meal of fresh local seafood and listen to live music every summer evening.

Among the pier’s biggest draws is the chance to fish for flounder, Spanish mackerel, and winter trout. Visit the full-service bait-and-tackle shop to pick up gear and bait then try your luck off the pier. When you haul in a big fish, have the on-site photographer document your trophy catch. Apache Pier is one of the best places in the Carolinas to reel in a king mackerel, with an exciting autumn competition.

A white-sand beach spreads out from the pier. Be sure to build time in your schedule for playing in the sand and waves. Rent a beach chair and umbrella from the fishing shop on the pier.

When it’s time for lunch and a cold drink, Croakers at the Pier awaits. This full-service restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the Atlantic. Savor locally caught shrimp, a juicy flounder sandwich or a burger. For lighter fare, stop at the snack bar on the pier.

Stay during the summer for the nightly live entertainment. Every show on the calendar is family-friendly, so bring the young ones along for line dancing, grooving on the beach and even karaoke. Summer typically also offers children’s activities, such as tie-dyeing and crafts.

Apache Pier is near the dining and live entertainment attractions of Barefoot Landing and the downtown Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Add the 1.2-mile-long (1.9-kilometer) promenade to your Apache Pier visit for its festivals and events throughout the summer.

Get to Apache Pier through the Apache Campground entrance, about 9 miles (15 kilometers) northeast of downtown Myrtle Beach. Nearby parking is available for fee. There’s a fee to walk the pier the fee is higher when live music is playing. Children have free access.
