New Beach Shading Regulations
The City of North Myrtle Beach has voted to ban the use of shading devices, other than umbrellas, May 15 – September 15th annually along the city's nine miles of beach.

This new law describes acceptable beach umbrellas as having “…a center pole no greater than 7 feet 6 inches in height, and with a circular shade no greater than 9 feet in diameter.” The law also describes an umbrella as being “a collapsible circular shade consisiting of a natural or synthetic fabric shade stretched over hinged ribs radiating from a central pole without grounding lines or ropes.

The adoption of this new law was driven by public safety concerns. Over the past several years, the sheer number of tents on the beach has grown to the point where it has become increasingly difficult for public safety officials to respond in a timely manner to beach related medical and other emergencies.

“We understand why tents are so popular among some beach-goers,” said North Myrtle Beach Public Information Officer Patrick Dowling. “They are convenient and one tent can provide shade to many people, while also accommodating coolers, chairs and other beach equipment. When their collective presence on the beach creates congestion that seriously affects the ability of public safety personnel to respond quickly to medical and other emergencies, public safety has to outweigh convenience.” To read the ordinance please Click Here.

"We were down for a wedding party that consisted of about 75 guests. The staff was ready to help for all "problems" that would arise. The rooms were clean and the view is unbelievable! The pier is connected to the resort (but an additional fee is required to enter the pier). the food in the restaurant is great and the bartenders do a great job. Would recommend for a family trip. Be advised that the rooms across the street do have an ocean view also." Barbara Carver Boston,MA

Guest Comments
"Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit in the tower across the street. Unit was spacious, clean and stocked with all the items my family needed to enjoy the stay. Staff was very friendly and I look forward to coming back very soon to enjoy some warm weather!" mssb2013, Winston Salem, NC

"Just spent a week in a two-bedroom corner condo in Tower 1. It was quite spacious. The kitchen was open to the living area with a counter bartop. Standing at the kitchen sink you look right out the huge floor to ceiling windows at the ocean. There was a big dining table with chairs for six. Since this was a corner unit there is also a huge window on the south wall looking down the beach towards Myrtle Beach. The balcony can be accessed via either the main living area or the master bedroom. This bedroom was huge with the same floor to ceiling windows. You wake up seeing and hearing the ocean. The bathroom was large with a garden tub/shower combo. The second bedroom also had a big window with ocean views. There were two queen beds in this bedroom. The second bath is also quite large. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. So much better than a hotel room. It was also very quiet. We didn't hear any neighbors. Can't wait to go back!" VacationAce, Loveland, OH
