Leave your sandy flip-flops on the wooden boardwalk and kick back on a bar stool while the ocean breeze blows through your hair. Order up a round of your favorite frozen drink or wash away your thirst with an ice-cold beer. You can come as you are at the local beach bars, where anything more than a bathing suit is considered overdressed.
The 60-mile stretch of white-sand beaches known as the Grand Strand is dotted with these diamonds in the dunes, ranging from large party spots with live music to quaint and quiet cafes where the only music is the sound of crashing waves. Whether you are looking for a place to get a drink and a tan at the same time during the day or a front-row seat to watch the moonrise over the Atlantic, Myrtle Beach has you covered.
Party the night and day away at Ocean Annie's or the Ocean Drive Pavilion; grab a beer and a burger for a break from the beach at Beach Bummz Cafe or 8th Avenue Tiki Bar; or kick back on the patio pool deck at St. Clement's Beach Bar & Cafe or Mango's on the Beach. It's all good in the neighborhood when the beach is your backyard.
