For years, North Myrtle Beach has stood in the shadow of its neighbor to the south - a beach town made famous by hopping nightlife and a bustling boardwalk. But therein lies the key to North Myrtle Beach's appeal - this laid-back city is a place to sunbathe, swim, fish in the ocean, and find the ultimate in relaxation at our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals.
Formed in 1968 when Windy Hill Beach, Crescent Beach, Ocean Drive Beach, and Cherry Grove Beach joined together, North Myrtle Beach sits in the upper reaches of the Grand Strand - a 60-mile stretch of beaches on South Carolina's Atlantic coast. This city of 15,000 year-round residents lies 16 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach, 57 miles southwest of Wilmington, NC, and 115 miles northeast of Charleston's historic harbor.
Whether you're traveling with friends or little ones, you'll find ample opportunities to get outdoors at our North Myrtle Beach vacation homes. With 240 public access points (and 54 summer lifeguard towers) along its nine-mile ocean shoreline, North Myrtle Beach is a haven for beach-combers, swimmers, and boogie-boarders.
Book a deep sea charter at the marina in Cherry Grove, cast fishing lines with your kids at the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier, and take a stroll along Main Street to watch spring and autumn revelers do the Shag - the state dance of South Carolina that originated in North Myrtle Beach.
Like its neighbor, Myrtle Beach, to the south, North Myrtle Beach is also an ideal escape for golfing, whether you choose to tee off at Tidewater Golf Club, Barefoot Resort & Golf, or Surf Golf & Beach Club.
