Contrary to what the name suggests, Myrtle Beach is not actually a beach, but rather a small city which lies on the east coast of the U.S. in Horry County, South Carolina. That said, beach lovers need not panic because fans of sun, sea, and sand will be pleased to hear that Myrtle Beach is, of course, a beach-side location within very close proximity of the Grand Strand, which provides miles of soft sand and makes a perfect destination for beach lovers. Combine this fact with the subtropical climate found in this part of the world and it’s no wonder that millions of visitors pour into Myrtle Beach every year looking for an unforgettable holiday break.

Beach holidays are obviously a great way to relax and unwind and to get away from the daily stresses of work or life in general, but if you are anything like my husband and I, you might find that as great as lying on the beach is, after a while it’s nice to take part in something a bit less passive. Myrtle Beach is a fantastic holiday choice because there are a wide range of exhilarating activities which can be undertaken from the Grand Strand.

Obviously, many of the available activities involve getting your feet wet, which, in the case of my ex-Marine husband, is fantastic news. One option, for example, is to try your hand at surfing, a skill I tried to learn earlier this year with very mixed results. That said, I throughly enjoyed putting my balance to the test and, with a large number of surf schools offering board-hire and lessons, it would be a shame not to give it a try.
Alternatively, try your hand at windsurfing, something I personally haven’t had the pleasure of attempting. It looks to me like a slightly less intense experience for those of us who don’t particularly enjoy eating sand and drinking salt water.
For those who enjoy a life on the ocean waves rather than in them, a number of great options exist. For example, you could try your hand at canoeing or kayaking. However, as with surfing, such activities tend to require a degree of balance. Otherwise, you might find yourself under your canoe or kayak rather than in it — not a great feeling from my experience!
Visitors to Myrtle Beach who have no wish to find themselves submerged in the ocean might instead prefer to hire a boat from one of the many boat rental companies in the city. This option might be particularly welcome for those wishing to spend some quality, peaceful time with their families — something which can be a real struggle in today’s hectic, Internet-obsessed world.
If you find yourself in need of a holiday location where you can get away from it all and enjoy some sand, sea, and a range of adventurous activities, Myrtle Beach could be the perfect destination for you. The only question now is, when are you going to book yourself a hotel in Myrtle Beach?
