Kayaking & Paddleboarding
If you want to get out on the water, there are few ways better than with a kayak or paddleboard! We highly reccomend you do this at least once during your visit to the beach. Use the Cherry Grove Boat Launch located on 53th Avenue North and go see the beautiful calm marshlands. You can rent kayaks and paddleboards from Great Escapes, J & L Kayaking or Kokpelli Surf & Rentals.
You can combine your kayak trip with a fishing trip too! The Cherry Grove Inlet is home to many types of fish including some with great table fare: Flounder, Redfish & Black Drum. Even without fishing, the trip is a great activity to enjoy during your stay at the beach.
Cherry Grove Oceanfront Park
If you’re looking for a small event space that you can rent, the Cherry Grove Oceanfront Park is available from the City of North Myrtle Beach’s Parks Department. The small gazebo can be used for parties, meetings, church gatherings and more after obtaining the proper permissions and permits.
Of course, the beach is one of the best things to do in Cherry Grove! It’s free, right in front of your hotel or vacation rental and is one of the top reasons to go to South Carolina in the first place. Some of our favorite spots to go to the beach are the access points across the street from Ocean View Villas in the very northern end of the beach and also the walkway between Sea Pointe and Sea Marsh II. There are lots of different points to walk onto the beach, but if you’re parking, these are good spots.
