Beach Information

Myrtle Beach State Park beckons visitors with its beautiful 1-mile stretch of relatively undeveloped beach. The park offers boardwalks to easily reach the beach as well as outdoor showers to rinse off. Plenty of bathrooms and changing facilities are available just a short stroll from the beach.

Handicapped Access

Myrtle Beach State Park has a beach wheelchair for handicap beach access, available on a first come, first serve basis to our visitors. The wheelchair is located at the fishing pier gift shop and must be signed out from that location during store hours. There is no charge for using the beach wheelchair, and, as such, we ask that it be brought back in a reasonable amount of time so that others may use it.  Feel free to contact the MBSP fishing pier with any questions:  843-238-5326
