You Are Here

umbrelliesPlaying in the ocean surf is sure a lot of fun. But, when you’re all tagged out and you need to take a break, you discover that you’re a good distance from where you started. Your beach chairs, towels, and cooler are a hike back up the beach. Mixed among sunbathers, children playing, and other beach lovers it’s not an easy task to spot your stuff.  Here are two tips to help you get back to the things you know:

Use bright-colored beach towels to cover your beach chairs. The more outlandish the towel’s colors, the easier it will be to spot your spot.

Tie a balloon to the handle of your beach chair. The balloon will be a high-flying signal as to where you left your things.

Since, the city of Myrtle Beach has approved a change in beach regulations that restricts the use of tents and other shading devices, except umbrellas, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, it shouldn’t be too much of a task to see your markers.

Instead of tents, the city does allow umbrellas up to seven-and-a-half feet in diameter, but no other shading devices are permitted during those summer months.  But, from the day after Labor Day until Memorial Day, tents up to 12-by-12 feet and less than nine feet tall may be used behind the umbrella line and 10 feet apart.
