Have you ever wondered what the weather is like in Myrtle Beach throughout the year? Though most guests are familiar with the gorgeous (and hot) summer days, fewer are familiar with the agreeable spring and fall weather and the surprisingly mild winters that the beach actually offers.

Being more familiar with the seasons could help you figure out when the best time of the year is to visit (and could help you save money during an off season getaway).


Here's our rundown of Myrtle Beach weather throughout the year:

Myrtle Beach Spring (March – May) Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Though Myrtle Beach winters are rather mild compared to more northern states, things really start to perk up around March when spring rolls around. The temperatures are quite agreeable, with daily averages in the 60’s-70’s and the forecast typically includes a mix of sunny days and some spring showers.

Spring is a popular time of year for spring break vacations, Easter weekend getaways, and our St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Additionally, many Myrtle Beach attractions that close for the winter re-open their doors to greet springtime guests. 


Myrtle Beach Summer (June – August) 

Most beach visitors are familiar with Myrtle Beach summers. Abundant sunshine, warm temperatures, and the occasional beach thunderstorm are the top three things you can expect during your summer vacation. Temperatures are typically in the high 80’s – low 90’s during the day and mid-70’s during the evening hours, making it easy to soak up the sun during the day and hit the town at night. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and beach toys if you are heading to our coastline during the summer! 

Summer is the most popular time of year for beach vacations. Guests come to take advantage of summer breaks and to enjoy our many local events, succulent beach dining, and family friendly attractions. Popular summer events include the Hot Summer Nights series, hosted by the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, Myrtle Beach Pelicans Games (our local minor league baseball team), and various family activities and fireworks at Broadway at the Beach. 



Myrtle Beach Fall (September – November) Couple Walking in Myrtle Beach

The fall season in Myrtle Beach is often considered the most underrated time of year to visit. The weather is fantastic with temperatures typically staying within the 70’s and 80’s and far fewer rain showers than any other time of the year. Hotel prices are typically lower, the weather is still perfect for hitting the beach, and there are tons of local events and festivals to enjoy.

The fall is a popular time for Labor Day weekend getaways or for extended Thanksgiving vacations. Visitors often enjoy the empty beaches, the plethora of fun local festivals, and enjoying outdoor dining and entertainment at local restaurants. 



Myrtle Beach Winter (December – February)

The beach begins to cool off at the end of the fall season and temperatures can get quite chilly! Most days stay above freezing, though we have gotten as low as the single digits before. Still, temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s are what you can expect if you are in the area during the holiday months. Hotel prices are quite reasonable during this season and many “snowbird” guests get great deals on condos while they escape the brutal snow-season up north.

Winter vacationers are typically in town for a snowbird vacation or are enjoying a holiday getaway. Winter beach visitors like to take advantage of Myrtle Beach's indoor attractions and lively holiday related entertainment and events. 



Well, there you have it! Everything you need to know about Myrtle Beach weather to help you plan the perfect beach vacation.


We want to know – when is your favorite time to visit Myrtle Beach?


Fall is quickly approaching and now is the time to start planning your off-season vacation to Myrtle Beach! While a beach vacation might not sounds appealing at first, we promise that Myrtle Beach still has plenty of perks outside of the prime summer season.


Wide Open Beaches

 Myrtle Beach Off-Season Visitors

The fall and spring seasons offer pristine beach weather and empty beaches compared to the busy summer season. The temperatures remain enjoyable from April – October, a little known fact for our visitors. Guests still have plenty of time to avoid the crowds and take advantage of the sun and sand.


And, even when the water does get too chilly to jump in, the beach is always a great place to watch the sun rise, take a scenic evening stroll, or enjoy a leisurely min-day picnic. The off-season also tends to be more lenient when it comes to having pets on the beach, so pet lovers often enjoy the shoulder season where they can bring their favorite furry friend along for the adventure.



Great Deals on Oceanfront Hotels & Resorts 


Planning a summer vacation in Myrtle Beach can quickly escalate into a costly affair. Taking an slightly earlier or later vacation, however, can save big bucks all around. Prices in the off-season can be quite reasonable and can even enable you to enjoy a much longer stay for the same budget you’d spend in the summer. Fall, in particular, is a popular time for guests as the weather stays beach-worth through the end of October and visitors can enjoy all of the other perks of their off-season trip. 

Myrtle Beach is also a great destination for a holiday getaway for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, or even Easter. The area offers plenty of lively events and entertainment during the holiday season, so guests will still find plenty to do year round.
