Myrtle Beach’s Best Beach is at Marina Inn at Grande Dunes!

Which Beach Would You Choose?

When you think of Summer, basking in hot sunny days and splashing around in the warm surf may first come to mind. We at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes realize that’s what you come here for so we strive to make these amenities the best during your Myrtle Beach vacation!

Let’s face it…Myrtle Beach gets crowded in the summer and when you go to the beach, you not only have to pay to park but often times there’s the headache of getting all of your gear together, dragging it to the surf and the trying to find a spot on the beach to set up your chair, umbrella. Even if you stay at another hotel or resort on the beach, you will still have to either bring your own beach gear or pay for pricey rentals for umbrella & chairs for the day or week!

Not here! One of the best perks of staying here at Marina Inn, is you get to enjoy the private sanctuary of our own uncrowded beach with all of these amenities included in your stay! Yes, that’s right!

Imagine this…all you need to take with you is your beach bag and some sunscreen.  You and the family can simply hop on our air conditioned beach shuttle for a comfortable 5 minute ride to the beach . Once there, a winding tree-lined path will guide you to beautiful coastal dunes covered in beach grass, guarding this quiet section of pristine beach.
