☀️Atlantic Beach

Another one of the must-see North Myrtle Beach beaches is Atlantic Beach. Originally devised as a vacation spot for black families in the early 1930s, this destination became renowned for its thriving little community of black-owned businesses.

This heritage is still prevalent today, as it is shared and celebrated.

The beach is situated along a barrier island bordered by Bogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, serving miles of warm white sands. The most popular access point is The Circle at Atlantic Beach, which you can find across from the Atlantic Beach Causeway. Other access points exist in Fort Macon State Park and Picnic Street Park.
