The Town of Surfside Beach proudly proclaims itself "The Family Beach," and it's easy to see why. Even in an area like the Grand Strand that is dedicated to family fun, there are few places that cater to kids as Surfside does.
A quick drive through the area shows you that, unlike the high-rise-filled waterfronts of some resort areas, Surfside Beach has a more residential feel. We're not just speaking in terms of rental houses, either… people actually live here, and the family-friendly atmosphere is a direct result. Even though most of the rental properties are concentrated near the ocean, don't miss the areas numerous parks and lakes, many of which offer public access.
In the heart of Surfside, you'll find the brand-new-for-2024 Surfside Pier, a state-of-the-art concrete fishing pier that has been eagerly awaited since 2016. It's a perfect spot to catch the biggest fish AND see the best sights, and is surrounded by some of the area's best restaurants. River City Café, The Gracious Pig, Chimichanga LLama, Bubba's Fish Shack, Pizza Hyena and Neil and Pam's all make their home within a block, and an evening trip here is a must-do.
Perhaps the best feature of Surfside, however, is the fact that it offers all this… and is still just minutes from all the sights, sounds and attractions that made Myrtle Beach "America's Beach Playground." Come see for yourself… you'll be glad you did!
