Travel Guide
North Myrtle Beach showing a beach, a coastal town and general coastal views
Appreciate the tranquil beach atmosphere, stay at one of the golf resorts and watch exciting performances in this quiet bay area.

North Myrtle Beach is a relaxed haven of sandy bays, piers and golf courses. The birthplace of South Carolina’s iconic “Shag” dance is an eclectic hub of restaurants, shops and picturesque stretches of sand, a calmer option than nearby Myrtle Beach. Enjoy the serenity and the slower pace of life in this pretty South Carolina town.

The western section of North Myrtle Beach contains some of the city’s most luxurious and relaxing sites. Play a few rounds and sip drinks from the elegant bar at Barefoot Resort and Golf. Head to the nearby Barefoot Landing shopping center, where you will find many bars with live performances and upscale boutiques.

For fun dining, bring your family to the House of Blues Myrtle Beach. Watch the rock-and-roll shows on the deck and attend the Gospel Brunch all-you-can-eat event on Sundays. For a different type of dramatic performance, visit the Alabama Theatre. Enjoy its unique brand of flamboyant and extravagant musicals.

Rent Jet Skis from one of the tour operators near the beach for a thrilling trip on the Atlantic Ocean or go parasailing or banana boating. Dinner cruises and other trips are available from agencies near the beach. During the hot summers, sunbathe on the sand before cooling down in the ocean.

Among the most acclaimed North Myrtle resorts is the Surf Golf and Beach Club, which combines the area’s favorite pastimes. Consider attempting the courses at the Beachwood Golf Club, the Azalea Sands Golf Club or Mayday Golf.

Fly to Myrtle Beach International Airport and drive north for about 20 miles (31 kilometers) to get here. Walk along the beach promenade or get around the city by taxi or bus. Myrtle Beach is just 15 miles (24 kilometers) southwest along the Grand Strand coastline, with Charleston another 100 miles (160 kilometers) farther.

For a serene beach hub with eclectic shopping options, resorts and entertainment venues, come to North Myrtle Beach.
