Reminder: Umbrellas Only On The Beach May 15-September 15



From May 15 through September 15, only umbrellas may be used for shade on the beach in North Myrtle Beach, and they must stand upright. No tents, pavilions, sport-brellas, or other kinds of shading devices are allowed on the beach during this period.

According to the City law, umbrellas must have a center pole no greater than 7 feet 6 inches in height and with a circular shade no greater than 9 feet in diameter. The law defines an umbrella as being “a collapsible circular shade consisting of a natural or synthetic fabric shade stretched over hinged ribs radiating from a central pole without grounding lines or ropes.”

No umbrellas may be placed within the emergency vehicle access lane, which is the area approximately 25 feet seaward of the dune line and parallel to the shoreline that will be marked by city trash cans, pylons and/or flags.

Umbrellas or other items/equipment remaining on the beach between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. will be removed from the beach. All items removed from the beach will be marked with the date of removal and maintained in the City’s storage yard for a period of 30 days from the date of removal. If an item has not been reclaimed within 30 days from the date of removal, the item will be deemed forfeited and will be disposed of. A $40 administrative fee will be charged for items claimed from the storage yard.

Due to tropical storm Ana, the vendor portion of the festival and the community stage performances have been cancelled for this year.

We will update this status later today.
