North Myrtle Beach is the Grandstrand’s favorite beach

Why has the City of North Myrtle Beach continually outperformed its neighbors to the South? Is it good government, good community, good business owners, good investments, good luck, or a combination of all of the above?

Whatever it is, North Myrtle Beach is unquestionably the best beach along the 60 mile coast called the Grandstrand.

In February 2019, Tripadvisor named North Myrtle Beach’s Cherry Grove one of the top 15 best beaches in America. North Myrtle Beach was the only city beach along S.C.’s North coast (Grandstrand) to make that list. The North coast runs from Little River, S.C. south to Garden City Beach.
