While it can be easy to set aside your healthy habits when taking a vacation — which is perfectly acceptable, of course, since giving yourself a break from the usual routine is one of the keys to a revitalizing getaway — on the Grand Strand, there are also plenty of opportunities for those looking to stay the course to maintain a healthful lifestyle.

If you’re determined to avoid too many splurges and maintain your good health habits during a getaway at Caribbean Resort & Villas on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, consider these great health & fitness-related resources available on the Grand Strand:

On-site fitness room: First, for guests staying at Caribbean Resort & Villas, our on-property fitness room features treadmills, a stair machine, elliptical machines and cardio step benches, all in addition to a universal gym. It can all be found on the fourth floor of the Cayman Tower.

On-site spa: At the on-premises Mist Spa, Caribbean Resort & Villas guests can enjoy a little pampering with services such as individual and couple’s massages, facials, body treatments and scrubs.

Yoga: For those who like to nurture their bodies and souls on the mat, there are plenty of yoga-studio options in the Myrtle Beach area. Among them, The Market Common’s Yoga in Common offers a range of classes geared toward yoga veterans and newcomers alike. Looking to put a truly Grand Strand spin on your yoga session? Jack’s Surf Lessons offers SUP Yoga sessions in conjunction with Yoga in Common — so you can grab a few zen moments while floating atop the local waters on a paddleboard.

Bay Naturals: This “healthy market and kitchen” found about 10 minutes north of Caribbean Resort & Villas focuses on providing healthful offerings such as raw and organic foods, herbs, nutritional supplements and homeopathic medicines. For grab-and-go prepared meals with an eye toward health and avoiding additives, the organic kitchen is also a great option. To learn more, visit com.

Kindbelly Café: Found on 79th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach, Kindbelly strives to offer a healthy alternative to the typical breakfast and lunch eatery options. The fresh, nourishing and wholesome dishes found on the menu here include soups, salads, bowls, omelets, acai and pitaya blends, smoothies, and more, all featuring organic, non-GMO and responsibly sourced ingredients. Check out the restaurant’s full range of healthy offerings at com.

Bike rental: See the Grand Strand sights by pedal power — and get some exercise while you’re at it! Found just a couple miles south of Caribbean Resort & Villas on Broadway Street in Myrtle Beach, Beach Bike Shop offers cruiser, hybrid and road bike rentals by the day or week, and they’ll even deliver (for an added fee) when guests rent their bikes for three days or longer.

These are just a handful of the healthy-living options found on the Grand Strand — if you’re looking for more, don’t hesitate to ask one of our knowledgeable and friendly staff members for additional recommendations.
