Surfside Beach


These South Strand communities have been family favorites for generations. Surfside Beach, in fact, proudly calls itself "the family beach." Incorporated as a town in 1964, Surfside Beach (population 4,425) is an active residential community and thriving vacation destination. Along its lovely beachfront you'll find beach houses, hotels, condominiums and a popular fishing pier. The town also has a large water park, along with numerous restaurants and other businesses. To the south is Garden City Beach (population 9000+), an unincorporated community that straddles Horry and Georgetown counties and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. The majority of Garden City's vacationers stay in beach houses, with condos coming in a close second. With access to the ocean and inlet, Garden City Beach is a hot spot for fishing, crabbing, and other water sports. The community has a fishing pier, marina, amusements, restaurants, and other businesses.
