Myrtle Beach is a great place to spend the day lounging on the shore. The beach does not allow overnight camping or sleeping; however, you are allowed to bring umbrellas for shade during your daily stay as long as they are within the following parameters - round umbrellas that are 7 feet, 6-inch in diameter or less. Tents, themselves, are prohibited from Memorial to Labor Day. With that, finding good shade during the heat of the day may prove a difficult task.
The Beach also has strict rules about the hours your pooch is allowed to walk the shores with you. Luckily, the allowed hours are before the heat sets in and after it starts cooling off in the warmer summer months. This makes for a great morning walk/run or a sunset stroll along the beach. Dogs must always be on a leash that is 7 feet long or shorter and must always be in the presence of and under the command of their owner. Please be sure to pay mindful attention to the designated endangered species areas to ensure there is no interaction between your dog and any other animals.
This is a great place to bring your pup for a fun, scenic walk. Be sure to remember that sand can be hot on puppies' paws and shade is necessary to keep them cooled off.
Also, your dog is your responsibility. It is required that you pick up and dispose of their waste appropriately to keep the beaches clean. Be mindful of those around you that may not like dogs. Keep your dog close to your side and away from other animals. They may be friendly, but you never know how they will react around a new dog.
