After months of quarantining, we’re excited to see everyone venturing out of their homes and toward the ocean again – at a safe distance, of course. Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a vacation at the beach. With two and a half acres of waterscape beautifully set with an oceanfront view, North Beach Resort and Villas gives you plenty of space and options for a socially distant, yet absolutely ideal getaway to The Grand Strand.

The spacious pools at the resort make having a 6-foot personal bubble a breeze and make for a relaxing place to tuck away and spend a sunny day. Plus, there are plenty more opportunities to make the most of your trip to North Myrtle Beach while keeping your distance from other travelers and also discovering new experiences in the area.

Space out on the beach

Of course a beach vacation wouldn’t be complete without packing up those beach towels and chairs and camping out under an umbrella by the ocean. With a warm, salty breeze and an expansive plot of sand, it’s easy to set up camp for the day under the South Carolina sun.

Pack your sunscreen, towel, volleyball, and cooler and head out for a quintessential day of vacationing. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend time together with friends and family while also staying in your socially distant bubble.

Hide away in the gardens

Stay in touch with nature at a safe distance from other travelers when you get off of the beach to explore more of the local, coastal environment. Right down the road, find Brookgreen Gardens and Vereen Memorial Gardens, two great stops for a peaceful, relaxing afternoon.

Brookgreen Gardens has been named one of the Top 10 Gardens in the United States by TripAdvisor. Its beautiful botanical gardens are a mix of art, nature and history, featuring American figurative sculpture on an area of the Lowcountry that was formerly a rice plantation in the 1800s.

On the other hand, Vereen Memorial Gardens has been a hidden jewel. The park features hiking trails and boardwalks across salt marshes and small islands for a convenient yet tucked away expedition into the waterway.

Explore the wide-open waterways

Heading out for a new perspective of the coastal scenery on a kayak is always a fun experience. With a spacious kayak and lengthy paddle, the opportunity to get active while maintaining your own space has never been more ideal. Catch a sunrise from the Atlantic or spend the afternoon exploring the Intracoastal by water for a group activity that gives everyone plenty of space to maximize their experience.

Take a walk around town

Hop in a car for a quick ride to spend a quaint afternoon in Downtown Conway. With unique, local restaurants like Rivertown Bistro, Bonfire Taqueria, and Pickled Cucumber along with charming stores like Curtains N Things, The Trophy Place, Papa’s General Store and River City Christmas, Conway has the makings of a small-town Hallmark movie.

You can walk through the quiet blocks with ease and also discover delightful, hidden parks around corners and tucked away between streets. Take a stroll down the Riverwalk and end your day with a fresh smoothie from Costa Bowls Conway or a dessert from the Trestle Cafe Bakery.

However you like to spend time on vacation, rest assured there is plenty to explore at a safe distance on The Grand Strand. Your vacation away to reconnect and relax with friends and family is waiting for you in North Myrtle Beach. North Beach Resort and Villas is the perfect home base for all your unforgettable experiences. Ready for top notch accommodations by the ocean? Want an incredible deal with exceptional value?
