Few combinations work better than the trifecta of ocean breezes, sand-covered toes and frosty beverages. And, of course, Myrtle Beach is a great place to catch all three of these in abundance, often in the same place.
Next time you and your vacation crew are ready to kick back and relax with a few cold drinks on the beach, check out one of these five great beachfront bars, all on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront and within an easy cab ride (or even a beach stroll) of The Caribbean Resort:
Bummz Beach Cafe: One of Myrtle Beach’s best backyards can be found just over a half-mile south of The Caribbean in this former beach house that’s now home to a great beach bar. The large patio deck at Bummz offers covered tables and sun-drenched lawn chairs so patrons can relax in the shade or soak up some sun, all while enjoying some suds and fresh seafood. Also offering a long list of tasty burgers and sandwiches, Bummz attracts crowds to enjoy live music on the outdoor stage.
Riptydz Oceanfront Grille and Rooftop Bar: Located 1.2 miles south of The Caribbean, this relatively new Myrtle Beach hot spot is part oceanfront restaurant, part beach bar. The rooftop bar here offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and live music nightly, all accompanied by a menu featuring seafood and prime steaks. This one also sits right on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, so it’s a great place to start or finish a stroll along the iconic 1.2-mile walkway.
Oceanfront Bar & Grill: Another beach bar located right on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, this bar and grill found 1.5 miles south of The Caribbean features a deck that’s right on the edge of the famous wooden walkway — offering a perfect place for people-watching and relaxing with food and drinks. Seafood and sandwiches take top billing on the menu here, while the bar offers a range of beer and cocktail choices.
Pier View Open Air Bar: While this bar isn't technically located “on the beach,” it's over it — and actually over the Atlantic Ocean, to be even more specific. Found on the Second Avenue Pier just over 2 miles south of The Caribbean, this open-air bar serves up a limited appetizer menu and a full bar menu, all complemented by great views of the ocean and beach. The relaxing atmosphere is enhanced with padded furniture and an indoor breezeway.
Sharkey’s Beach Bar: This bar/restaurant located 2.5 miles south of The Caribbean serves up seafood, sandwiches, poultry dishes and salads, all made with the freshest ingredients and accompanied by some of the area’s best Boardwalk and ocean views. The establishment’s new deck provides both shaded and sunny seating, all within easy reach of the full-service bar.
Once you’ve soaked up some seaside food and drinks, head back to your comfortable oceanfront accommodations at The Caribbean Resort & Villas to catch some rest and work up an appetite for your next Grand Strand adventure.
