The coastal resort city of Myrtle Beach is situated in the state of South Carolina, on the USA’s eastern coast, north of Charleston, and south of Wilmington. Attracting over 14 million visitors per year the city makes a great holiday destination for those who want to combine wide sandy beaches with golf, shopping, entertainment, dining and family fun, so self catering accommodation in Myrtle Beach is suitable for many different tastes!
As the name of the city suggests, the beach is an important attraction in any Myrtle Beach holiday! Wide sandy beaches line the coast here, and there are plenty of holiday homes lining the beaches. Whether you choose a Myrtle Beach condo, villa, cottage or house you’re bound to enjoy many long days on the beach! The main beaches do, expectedly, get crowded during the summer so if you have a car you can travel a little way down the coast to Myrtle Beach State Park or the larger Huntington Beach State Park. As well as the beaches you can enjoy camping, fishing, walking, and more in these state parks.
Self catering accommodation in Myrtle Beach is also a great choice if you enjoy golf. There are numerous excellent golf courses in the area, plus for a more family oriented experience try putt putt as you’ll find the highest concentration of putt putt courses in the world here!

As if all of the above wasn’t enough to keep you occupied on a Myrtle Beach holiday you’ll find there’s even more places to visit! Specific attractions include the large Ripley’s Aquarium and the theme park Freestyle Music Park. Here you’ll find roller coasters, kid’s play areas and many other attractions, mostly themed around music. The Myrtle Beach Speedway is another popular place to visit, hosting stock car events and similar.
A Myrtle Beach holiday can be enjoyed year round on account of the warm humid subtropical climate experienced here. Summers are hot with July being the warmest month at an average high of 33C (91F). Spring and autumn are both very pleasant and warm, whilst winters are mild. Although a little on the cool side for enjoying the beach, winter could be good for golf.
