Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant.
Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.
Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.
If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.
Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.
Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.
Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone's to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports... and of course, nothing but relaxation.

Wonderful old beach house on the beach. Comfortable sitting areas, good beds,adequate showers, great sunrises. Had a birthday party with catering lots of room for the 35 people. The only complaint is that the kitchen was not ok. Refrigerator one had broken shelves and some of the eyes on the stove did not work. The tv’s were a challenge to figure out, but once we figured them out, no problem. The rental agency was always helpful and attentive.

Ocean Sands is in a great location right on the beach. Roomy with plenty of parking. Although the interior had been updated recently, there were some things that were not up to par: toilet seat that was loose (downstairs bath), no DVD player that could be connected to the TV in the living room - the only place we could all watch movies together, kitchen knives were very old - almost useless, headboard in upstairs bedroom was propped up with pillows. In addition, the AC stopped working our second day in the cottage when it was 90 degrees outside! Realty company had a maintenance man there within a few hours who was able to repair it, even though he was quite rude to all of us in the process.

Huge kitchen and great air condition, lots of parking. Lovely beach not crowded.
Rebooked same week next year. Kroger 3 miles, Painter Ice Cream by the Garden city pier is great. Tv in every room good WiFi. Check in took 30 min wait to get to counter was too slow not enough help.
