How to have a romantic Myrtle Beach getaway

Do you and your dearest have that spark going? Whether it’s burning strong or maybe needs a boost, a Myrtle Beach getaway might be just what you need.

Some couples are happy to hide away in a coastal paradise, just for 2. Others want to venture out and find fun in the sun together. Either way, a jaunt to Myrtle Beach can offer plenty of options for a romantic vacation.

The beaches are wide and dreamy in Myrtle Beach. They’re perfect for a sunrise together seaside or a table for two in an oceanfront restaurant at sundown. It’s a memorable location for a marriage proposal too. We’re not pushing, we’re just saying.

Why take a romantic getaway?

Life gets busy. With the hustle and bustle of jobs, juggling responsibilities, handling kids and/or pets, and simply making it day to day in today’s world can be a lot. We often lose sight of the good things in life – namely, our significant other. Having an escape to look forward to together – like a weekend in Myrtle Beach – gives you a little lift to your day. Such a trip can produce lasting memories, or just be a chance to recharge and reconnect with your boo.

Here are suggestions for taking a romantic beach vacation in Myrtle Beach.

Romantic things to do in Myrtle Beach

At the Resort

The first thing you’ll want to do is have a plan. We recommend a look at one of the Brittain Resorts properties. They provide an array of possibilities for every couple, introverted or extroverted. They’re centrally located and yet secluded enough for a Myrtle Beach escape.

Start your day with sunrise breakfast on the balcony for 2

In properties where room service is available, there’s nothing like ordering the night before to surprise your mate. Or show off your culinary skills by whipping something up in your kitchenette. Say “I love you” with crepes. Tell her she’s perfect with a parfait.

Take a long walk on the beach

Venture out to watch a Myrtle Beach sunrise or walk together after dinner at sunset. You could take a picnic and go midday, or for dinner. Go hand-in-hand, and bring a blanket so you can find a spot to stop for a while. Take the phone out for a selfie, then go on ‘do not disturb.’


Picnics at the state park

Pack a picnic and head to Huntington State Park or Myrtle Beach State Park. Keep it light: skip the main course and focus on appetizers and desserts. It’s easy to pack crostini, prosciutto, your favorite cheeses, and chocolate-covered cherries are just classic.

Parasailing for 2

For the adventurers out there. You have a few choices in Myrtle Beach, including Downwind Sails Watersports, Atlantic Watersports, and Shoreline Watersports. Ride above the waves with your love for a unique view of the shoreline.

Brookgreen Gardens

Take your time amid the sights at Brookgreen Gardens. With more than 2,000 works on display around the plantation grounds, along with indigenous flora and fauna, this place is a perfect setting for a romantic day. Get a table for 2 at the cafe for a snack or lunch.


Rooftop drinks at Tin Roof

Go up on the roof for an oceanfront evening under the stars at Tin Roof. You’ll have a sea breeze and astonishing view of the Myrtle Beach skyline. Come for happy hour and appetizers from a unique menu. Tin Roof has live music and nearby metered parking.

Walks on the Marshwalk

Now, this is romance. The half-mile wooden boardwalk in Murrells Inlet provides a step away from the buzz of Myrtle Beach, in a historic fishing village on a saltwater estuary. Stop for dinner on the Marshwalk at one of a handful of restaurants on the waterway.
