Surfside Beach, a small seaside community nestled into the southern edge of Myrtle Beach, encompasses two miles of pristine beach known as The Family Beach. It’s a small, laid-back town, proud of its child-friendly environment for residents and guests, but Surfside is also a thriving vacation destination. Family beach attractions include the Surfside fishing pier, its Wild Water & Wheels water park, a slew of restaurants and miniature golf courses. In the early 1800s, much of what is now Surfside Beach was owned by John Tillman and called The Ark Plantation. By the time Surfside Beach was officially incorporated in 1964, the quiet, clean community had already established its reputation as a family beach. And it’s all about families in Surfside Beach, where folks who visit find activities to please any age. Some places that you may need a Surfside taxi to includes:
- 36 access points to the popular beach – perfect for boating, swimming, fishing and surfing.
- The Surfside Beach Pier – originally built in 1953 and rebuilt at least three times (last in March 1993), where folks take sunset walks over the water or take in Sunday Serenades, a summer concert series. Fisherman who want to cast a line will find equipment rentals and bait available in the Pier’s tackle shop.
- Seven public parks, where visitors can enjoy a game of tennis, bocce, shuffleboard and much more. All Children’s Park has playground equipment made especially for those with physical challenges. The newest park, Passive Park, sits beside the Surfside Beach public library and offers a place to enjoy the beauty of nature in quiet contemplation.
