Myrtle Beach has a favorite oceanfront resort. It’s Long Bay Resort. And after you visit this 286-unit luxury resort featuring nonstop family fun at its stunning north end location, you’ll make it your No. 1 South Carolina family getaway choice, too!
Why is this place so grand? Oh, we might say it has something to do with all the family-oriented options. For instance, the outdoor Silly Sub Waterpark has a super colorful submarine loaded with bucket drops and fountains. And – like something out of a movie – the expansive outdoor pool is surrounded by a sprawling sundeck. The loungers lining the deck go on for what looks like miles, waiting for you to stretch out on, with a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other. Ah…we’re getting away from ourselves. Besides enjoying the spectacular pools, hot tubs and lazy river, we know you’ll have big fun with the games – literally. There are giant poolside chess and checker sets! Spend your nights in one of the one- to three-bedroom efficiencies, rooms, suites condos and apartments with stunning ocean or city views. Make a family dinner in the full kitchen of dine at the onsite Martin’s Restaurant.
Long Bay Resort has 720 feet of beautiful Atlantic Ocean beachfront.
The Grand Strand has nearly 1,700 eateries serving up a variety of international cuisine and some of the world's finest seafood
