Myrtle Beach Area Public Beach Access Parking
Myrtle Beach City Parking Meters
Throughout the Grand Strand, you'll see signs for beach access parking along Ocean Boulevard at each street end. Watch for the "Public Beach Access" signs. Some locations are pathways only; others offer paved or unpaved parking. The law specifically designates how many feet apart public beach access areas must be, based on development density. In recent years, meters have been added to some, but not all, of these parking areas. These meters are removed during off-season.
