The Myrtle Beach lifestyle has not been overtly altered in recent weeks despite the current global pandemic. Travelers and locals can still bask in the soothing Carolina sunshine while splashing in the vast Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the sheer magnitude of the Grand Strand allots approximately 60 miles of pristine beach access. And, because of travel restrictions, there’s never been more space to spread out in the sand than right now as we approach summer 2020. We strongly urge all guests to heed the CDC’s social distancing guidelines this summer, which will likely be no tall task, thanks to our exclusive beach access here at legendary Sand Dunes Resort. There’s still plenty of beach fun to be had along this sandy paradise. So, pack your beach gear, hop into the car, and head to South Carolina’s crown jewel without a care in the world.

Summer Beach Fun: 20 Activities Fit for 2020

While we’re all focused on what we can and cannot do in 2020, it’s important to note that these 20 beach activities will remain relevant for decades to come. When Mom and Dad hear the phrase “beach fun,” memories of building sandcastles, searching for starfish, and lapping up ice cream are likely to come to mind. Beach fun, in and of itself, is all about making everyone in the family happy, from your glee-filled youngest to your skeptical teenager. Try sitting down with the entire family before your departure to go through these 20 activities. You might be surprised to discern that everyone can find common ground when it comes to basking in the glorious, mid-summer Myrtle Beach sunshine.
