Played Bocce Ball on Crescent Beach. A bit windy in January but the sun helped warm up the day. Easy public parking and beach access. Just walking the beach in search of shells or shark's teeth is a good day at the beach!

Love the Crescent Beach Area. Been staying in the house for 27 years now. Is a nice family beach to go too. We did miss the family arcade when it was torn down. The kids loved it!

I have never seen so many storm drain pipes in such a small stretch. Drain areas are known to have higher levels of bacteria present and also harbor the storm water run off.

We tend to stay in the Crescent Beach section of North Myrtle Beach S.C. The beach is wide here and you're just minutes away from Cherry Grove pier. Main street where they do the shag is just a few blocks away also. You tend to...More

Have been visiting Crescent Beach in North Myrtle Beach for over 20 years. Came as a child with my parents and now visit as an adult. Enjoy the clean beaches - along with the uncluttered beachfront with no neon, boardwalk and retail outlets.

For 20 years, we've returned to this spot on the beach, a favorite, not crowded and gorgeous! Note this beach may be significanlty smaller during high tide, but is perfect in the AM.

Crescent Beach is one of the best beaches in the Grand Strand. Most of the GS beaches are pretty good except for MYB. We been visiting Crescent for many years and always have a great time. It not too crowded and has many beach accesses.

Plenty of places to golf carts and mopeds. Most hotels are right on the beach and a lot of home rentals
