The 1.4-miles stretch of beach along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk has become one of the area’s most popular spots since this revitalized promenade re-opened in 2010.
Stretching through the heart of downtown, the boardwalk is a divided into three parts.
There’s a paved southern stretch (from 1st to 8th avenues North) which winds through dunes and trees, a middle section (8th to 11th avenues North) which bustles with restaurants, bars and shops and a northern portion (11th to 15th avenue North) which features elevated wooden planks and sights including the SkyWheel, Pier 14 and Banditos Mexican Cantina.
The sport where the boardwalk crosses the former Pavilion site is one of the most well-traveled spots in town and offers a great opportunity to veer out onto the beach for a quick stroll down the sand.
Parking for the boardwalk includes a number of meters along 8th and 9th avenues North and nearby on Ocean Boulevard. Meters in the City of Myrtle Beach are in effect from March 1 through Sept. 30 and are enforced from 9 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week.
You can also park at the Pavilion Parking Garage at the corner of 9th Avenue North and Kings Highway. Rates change by season, ranging from $4-6.
