Best Places for a Myrtle Beach Photo Opportunity

When you’re on vacation, you’ve just got to get a great photo to take back home—or, of course, to post for your friends on Facebook.

There’s lots of picture snapping that happens here in Myrtle Beach, but we thought we’d share with you a few favorite places for photo opportunities. These are the photos you’ll end up framing!

2nd Avenue Pier

2nd Avenue Pier

There are a couple of great shots you can get at this pier. One is on the pier—but you have to pay the $1 fee to walk the pier first. Still, it’s fun to stand under the 2nd Avenue Pier sign next to the replica shark and have your photo taken—and try to convince your friends back home that you caught the shark. Another great 2nd Avenue Pier shot is one you’ll have to get up early for: Wake up before sunset and head to the beach. Just north of the pier, you can get a great shot of the sun rising over the ocean, but you might have to fight it out with a couple of other photographers, that’s how popular the shot is!

The Boardwalk

The Boardwalk

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade provides great views, and it’s a great place for a Myrtle Beach photo opp. We love the distinctive look of the shade sails and the wooden sidewalks, along, of course, with the great ocean views.

The Beach

The Beach

Is it just us, or is every other photo on Facebook and Instagram these days a selfie shot of someone’s legs as they lay on the beach tanning? You’re welcome to take such a photo, but we’re partial to the “buried on the beach with just your head sticking out of the sand” shot.

Murrells Inlet MarshWalk

Murrells Inlet MarshWalk

This is outside of Myrtle Beach, south of town in Murrells Inlet, but this fishing village is perfect for photos. The Marshwalk has plenty of places to stop for a photo, and when you get hungry (or thirsty!) you can take your pick of watering holes and seafood shacks.
