Top Three Beach Activities
It’s officially August; the pinnacle of summer here in Myrtle Beach and the temperatures aren’t showing signs of cooling off any time soon. Thousands flock to our pristine sandy shores each year to take advantage of our bountiful sunshine and glistening ocean. Besides just enjoying a lazy day on the beach, however, there are tons of fun activities that you can participate in to really make the most of your time at the coast. Here are three other fun ways to enjoy the beach:
What could be more “beach” than catching your own dinner? Whether you are a pro or a newbie, there is something delightfully refreshing about casting out into the open sea and waiting in anticipation for that bite. Great for a solo adventure or a group outing, fishing can be fun for everyone, even the little ones. Try your hand at surf fishing or head to one of the local piers, like the Apache Pier, to try your luck from above. Area piers that allow fishing offer bait shops that are fully stocked with everything you could need. Depending on the time of year, you can expect to catch everything from flounder and sea bass to trout and perhaps even a baby shark!
Take a break from the sand and splurge on a boat or jet ski from a local rental company. You can find everything from sporty boats great for riding the waves to large pontoon boats perfect for floating the inlets and creeks. Jet skis are a great way for the family to enjoy a little friendly competition and perfect for a shorter, afternoon adventure. If you are looking for something a little more wallet friendly, rent a few kayaks or paddle boards and lazily explore the area marshes and creeks. No matter what you prefer, beach rentals are a great way to have wet n’ wild fun with family and friends.
The soft, sandy shores are the perfect place to enjoy a little friendly competition. Traditional games, like ladder ball and corn hole, are always a big hit with families. Newer games, like Spike Ball and Ring Toss are also making their way to beaches in the area. Many people might not know that Myrtle Beach recently got their own beach game, called Myrtle Ball. To play, teams try and roll or toss balls of different sizes into corresponding cups that are buried in the sand. The beach is also a great place for a good ole fashioned game of toss football. Bring one or bring ‘em all and set up for a fun filled day at the beach!
