I think of all the beaches in the Myrtle Beach area, this is the nicest. White sand, large broad beach, good outside showers to rinse off,plenty of picnic tables, nice restrooms and changing areas. The adjacent ruins are also interesting.

Nice beach, not too crowded, clean, easy access. It's $5 per person to get in for the day. You can bring coolers, umbrella's etc...unlike Myrtle Beach where you can't.

We love getting away from the crowded beaches! Parking and restrooms are close to the beach. There are picnic facilities and a gift shop/store. Atalaya Castle is a nice added attraction. We also took advantage of the bike path through the park.

Which is the best picnic shelter to reserve close to the ocean but not a long walking distance from the parking area? Looking at a small wedding in September and need a location for older guest to sit for a short ceremony in the sand prior to the event.

There are nice covered picnic tables near the boardwalk that leads to the beach from the parking lot. Not a long walk!!
What is the temp like in mid-april? Is it warm enough for the kids to enjoy swimming? Would they burn by the sun at that time of year?

The water was cold my kids got wet but it was too cold to swim. We did get some sun though so yea you can still get a burn.
can you just go there and walk around even though you are not camping?
