Winter serenity at Cherry Grove Beach

Posted By ShoutCarolina,Date: 02.12.2009

Cherry Grove Beach in North Myrtle Beach is where the Intracoastal Waterway meets the Ocean. It’s breathtaking. Winter is my favorite time at the beach. It’s so peaceful. You’re completely detached from every day worries, free to think, watch and just breathe.

Some come to fish from the famous Cherry Grove Pier, home to world record catches (i.e. 1780 lbs Tiger Shark), others for kayaking and bicycling. Most spend time collecting shells or hunting for treasures. I’m just happy to be there.

Where to stay at Cherry Grove Beach
Prince Resort it’s right at the pier and one of the best kept secrets in North Myrtle Beach as far as ocean front accommodations. You can enjoy luxurious lodging for $60 a night!

We stayed there twice in a brand new 2BR/2BA/huge balcony oceanfront condo featuring king master bed, large kitchen equipped with top of the line appliances, modern furniture, sparkling bathroom fixtures with enough towels to please an entire football team. We were right at pool floor so we indulged in the hot bubbling water while gazing at the blue ocean waters and the people on the pier.…
