The Beautiful and Historic Myrtle Beach Piers
There are quite a few piers in and around Myrtle Beach. Piers are a great place to admire the view and to fish! Piers are widely popular for their photographic opportunities and many people even get engaged on piers!
Second Avenue Pier is the southern anchor to Myrtle Beach’s very own Boardwalk and serves as one of the Grand Strand’s landmarks. Home to Pier House Restaurant and the open air bar and loung, Pier View, Second Avenue Pier is fun for all ages! Watch the sunset from Pier View and you may never want to have a cocktail anywhere else!

Apache Campground Pier, located on Lake Arrowhead Rd, is the longest wooden pier on the East Coast and is open all year round!

Myrtle Beach State Park is three miles south of Myrtle Beach, depending on where you are staying and is located on business 17. It is free to walk on the pier with paid park admission and a fishing pass is only $4.50 and you can rent a rod for $4 with a $20 deposit!

Springmaid Pier captures the title for longest pier in Myrtle Beach and is also a Myrtle Beach landmark. Many fishing tournaments are held at Springmaid Pier through the year and holds the state record catch for Spanish Mackerel! This pier is at the quieter end of the beach and has BARnacles Bar and Grill attached to the pier. Walk right off the beach and grab a quick lunch or cocktail!
Cherry Grove Beach Pier is on 35th avenue north and the home to the world record catch of a 1780 pound Tiger Shark! Cherry Grove Pier has weathered many hurricanes and survived at least one rebuild and lengthening due to Hurricane Floyd. The Prince family has owned and operated the pier since 1965, one of the longest standing ownerships in Myrtle Beach.
