North Myrtle Beach, SC
This is our preferred beach area in South Carolina because unlike Myrtle Beach, weddings are allowed on the beach.
There are no permits required for having your wedding ceremony on the beach although beach rules must be observed. This is a public beach and no areas can be blocked off or reserved. There is public parking at most street-ends and the beach front parks are all public and cannot be reserved.
Here is a link to see the Rules:
NMB has several parks that are available on a reserved basis. Click here for information on reservations and to see pictures of the sites.
These are sometimes great backup locations in case of inclement weather because many have gazebos.
