Welcome to The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

What seaside resort is complete without a Boardwalk? Downtown Myrtle Beach is home to an award winning Boardwalk and Promenade!

North Dunes Walkway Section

The North Walkway extends from the Fifteenth Avenue North Park to Plyler Park at the foot of Mr. Joe White Avenue. It features a raised wooden deck and dune landscaping with vegetation which offers a serene, peaceful, and natural environment; a perfect beach experience. The walkway in this section is eight feet wide with connecting pathways to beach access points and adjacent accommodations and attractions.

Central Wooden Boardwalk Section

The high-intensity portion of the boardwalk extends from Plyler Park to Eighth Avenue North. This section adjoins beachfront stores and shops and invokes a carnival and nostalgia atmosphere with its sights, sounds, and energy with a more classic wooden Boardwalk surface.  This section ranges from approximately 26 to 50 feet in width.

South Promenade Section

The South Promenade continues from Eighth Avenue North to First Avenue North just south of the Second Avenue Pier. The South Promenade is a lineal oceanfront park with benches and natural landscaping. This section offers relaxing views of the beach and passive recreational opportunities. Main walkways are twelve feet wide, while secondary paths are eight feet wide.
