Throughout the Grand Strand area you will see Beach access parking along Ocean Blvd. art each street-end. Watch for "Public Beach Access" signs. Some locations are just a sandy path (watch out for burs) while others offer free parking. You may still find some parking spaces that are free, but for the most part, those days are gone.* Instead you will find parking stations and parking meters. The law stipulates how many parking spaces are allowed, determined by development and density. in recent years, many new parking meters have been installed in Myrtle Beach. Parking meters are removed on Oct. 321 and are re-iunstalled on March 1.
When heading to North MyrtleBeach, the signs at street-ends can be found along Ocean Blvd. on your right. Depending on the various areas, Myrtle Beach meters cost $2. hour ($10. per day) down to $1.50 per hour, $8. day.) per hour. See City of Myrtle Beach for more information.

All parking meters take U.S. coins, some credit and debit cards, plus pay-stations now accept coins, U.S. bills up to $10, credit cards and debit cards.

The Market Common Parking is free (see above) on all the streets. Also, there are two parking garages within The Market Common where it is also free to park. This may not last forever, but for now (2020) it is the current law. Also note: Do not park 2 motorcycles in one single parking space, even though you and I know they fit nicely. Unfortunately, this is against the law, so be aware you may get a pakrking ticket.
