Carolina Winds boasts 700-feet of oceanfront directly behind the resort property. Naturally, the sugary white sand stretches for miles and miles north and south of this high-rise and is perfect for enjoying long walks in the daytime or even under the full moon sky.

And there is no better seat for the sunrise than when you are planted on the white sand.

Take your beach chair and favorite book to the water's edge and sit so the Atlantic Ocean gently rushes over your feet. Kids love to play in the ankle deep water and fairy tale sand castles are easily sculpted in the sand before the tide washes them away.
The beaches in Myrtle Beach are naturally tranquil with the rhythmic sound of crashing waves and symphonic call of a seagull.
