The sun is always shining on Myrtle Beach: Visitors come to enjoy more than 2800 hours of sunlight annually by golfing, sunbathing, fishing, jet skiing, and sand castle building.
With the main draw being the 60-mile drag of sparkling sand with waves lapping gently at the feet of the long-walkers on the beach, this view is mandatory when you visit.
So hop on a banana boat, hold onto your bikini top and get ready to explore our favorite oceanfront hotels & resorts in Myrtle Beach.
