Destination Basics

Myrtle Beach's proximity to the ocean gives it a moderate climate tempered by the sea breeze – making it a year-round option for travellers. Temperatures generally reach their highest during July (27 C monthly average) and lowest during January (7 C monthly average). The humid subtropical climate provides less extreme temperatures than the rest of the state and allows for a long summer.

The region does experience summer thunderstorms and has occasionally experienced severe weather patterns in the past during the hurricane season (June to November), but direct contact with a hurricane or tropical cyclone is rare. Winters are mild and when snow arrives, it's only as a topic of brief conversation.
