Marina Inn – Myrtle Beach’s Hidden Gem

Experience Myrtle Beach at Marina Inn

One of the best reasons to visit Myrtle Beach, SC is for its wide variety of vacation experiences and recreational opportunities. From beautiful beaches and attractions to world-class golf and fine dining, there is truly something for everyone here! If you are searching for a Myrtle Beach resort that checks off all the boxes on your family’s vacation wish list, then look no further than the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. Located along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway and just one mile from the beach, this 2,200-acre landscape is one of the area’s top communities thanks to its elegant accommodations, fun amenities, and central location between North and South Myrtle Beach. Popular attractions are just a short drive away, such as Broadway at the Beach (5 miles), Barefoot Landing (4.5 miles), and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk (6 miles).

Play Where You Stay

By far, the hub of activity for Marina Inn is its beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired pool area located right next to the water. Head out for a refreshing swim in the indoor and outdoor multi-level pools, or soak in the hot tub while watching boats cruise in the marina and along the Intracoastal Waterway. Golf enthusiasts can brush up on their golf game at Grande Dunes’ championship golf course, which is just a quarter-mile away from the Marina Inn on the opposite side of the Intracoastal. Guests can also grab a bite to eat at the popular on-site restaurants Waterscapes and Ruth’s Chris Steak House, as well as two full bars – one indoor bar and one outdoor bar near the swimming area (outdoor bar only open in summer season). Additional amenities include a fitness center/sauna, tennis courts, and watersports rentals conveniently located down at the marina.

Whether you are a seasoned shagger, shag newbie, or willing spectator who just wants to learn a step or two, you will love this laid-back party atmosphere. Be sure to stick around for the huge parade that will be held on Main Street at 1:00 p.m. on the final Saturday of the event (April 29th).
