We liked that we could walk with our kids and grandson's from our rental to a quiet beach, five minute walk. There is a bike rental that will deliver and pick up the bikes. So our children and grandsons rode bikes to the candy shop, ice cream shop almost every day. Ice cream and sundae's were delicious and Candy Shop... More

My grandfather built our beach house in 1981 and this has been my designated home ever since. Forget the hustle and bustle. Forget the meat market of Myrtle, Daytona and Miami. This beach is safe for kids to go out at night. You can walk your dog in the morning. After a good storm, the sea shelling is epic. 34... More

Always a great beach trip. Our family goes every year. Week prior to Fourth of July the beach was not really crowded. We always go to the point and the sandbar which is part of beach and not restaurants! While I only went into ocean three times, I didn't encounter any sharks, thank goodness! They have been prevalent in the... More

My family has been coming here for years, and it's beautiful. The beach isn't crowded. We've found everybody here very friendly and hospitable. We've stayed in several houses, and while I could nitpick on each and every one, there's no point, because we've had great family beach weeks every time. However, at the time of this writing (June 2015) there... More

Have been coming to Holden Beach for 30 years, never had a "bad" beach house! 4 Crabs by the Sea 423 OBW oceanfront is a dump and literally stinks! Don't waste your money like we did! We rented to be near family in the house next door which is very nice, truly disappointed with this house, it is obvious the... More

My family and I have been coming here for awhile now and we love it. We normally come in late July or early August. The beach is great and family friendly. If you are looking for a quiet beach this is the place the further down the island you go the less populated it is and lets you have your... More

We arrive about 12 of us for a after dinner treat. Service was terribly slow. The menu shows only one sundae hot fudge. While that is a slim menu it was just what I wanted. So I asked for a hot fudge sundae only to be told they were not being served. Are you out of chocolate sauce? I asked.... More

Holden Beach is the best family beach around. The beach is not crowded at all. I've been coming for 6 years with about 40 people of all ages. The best part is that there are no McDonalds, Taco Bell, and other widely known restaurants. It's a family vacation with homes where you enjoy your time with family and make meals... More

Great family beach resort. A few restaurants, but no clutter (major hotel to crowd you) or distractions (vendors) near the beach. Convenient to fishing charters, golf and Myrtle Beach attractions without the congestion. Water is clean and warm - 82F in June. Turtles regularly come ashore and build nests.

Great beach in the fall, winter and early spring before the crowds arrive! Wonderful for walking, watching the surf, watching dolphins and pelicans!
