Between Cherry Grove Beach and downtown North Myrtle Beach, lies a wide open public beach access point. With ample parking, an oceanfront bar, grocer, pizza and ice cream places, those choosing for a fun-filled family day at the beach can find a lot of good choices here.
Downtown North Myrtle Beach can be aptly defined by its Main Street scene. The heart of and soul of NMB, Main Street offers a collective mix of restaurants, nightlife and amusement rides. What’s more, the Main Street beach access has one of the biggest beach attractions: A giant inflatable water-slide.

Probably the most crowded location in North Myrtle Beach, Main Street’s beach access point is vast. While parking can be more difficult to find, once parked, you can truly pack a full day of events while there. First, and perhaps most importantly to the kids, is the inflatable water-slide. The “Trippo” slide is 36 feet tall and 180 feet long, this Goliath can be seen from all over North Myrtle Beach. Offering two curved side chutes and one straightaway main chute, this 7000 lb. slide, what person wouldn’t like this? The Trippo slide is open from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day. You can purchase single slide rides all the way up to season passes.
For those interested in hitting the beach without kids, Main Street offers a bevy of bars all within walking distance. Just a short walk from Main Street, Coconuts, is an oceanfront bar connected to the Maritime Resort that locals and tourists alike enjoy. Located right on Main Street, Pirate’s Cove and International Cafe are also great places to enjoy a drink and childless atmosphere.
