Are you planning a beach trip to Myrtle Beach this fall?

The City of Myrtle Beach is introducing new off-season beach regulations. Please review the changes below to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.


During this time, dogs will be permitted on the beach and boardwalk at all hours, provided they are kept on a leash no longer than 7 feet.


Bicycles will also be welcomed on the beach and boardwalk without any time restrictions.

Tents and Canopies

Tents and canopies, up to 12 feet by 12 feet in size, are allowed, but they must be positioned at least 10 feet behind the designated umbrella line.

Kayaks and Surfboards

Restrictions on the use of kayaks and surfboards have been lifted, allowing their use without specific area or time limitations.

Splash Pad

Please note that the splash pad at Futrell Park will be deactivated until Memorial Day.


All visitors to Myrtle Beach will be required to pay for parking, regardless of the time of year. This is a change from the previous policy, where parking was free during January, February, November, and December.
