This is the best beach on the Grand Strand! The beach is wide and well cared for, the people are friendly and the sunrises are incredible. The beach isn't as crowded as Myrtle or some of the others. Great family friendly area!

This beach is clean, well maintained, family friendly beach spot. Not too busy, definitely a nice place to sit and watch the tide roll in and wash back out again!

This beach is very clean with nice white sand. My grand children liked this beach. It was about 60 degrees, too cold for me!!!

Being surrounded by families and no tourist traps, this beach is a little slice of heaven. It's quiet, well kept, and relaxing. Drive 3 minutes from the beach to US 17 and you have every store you need. A great place to unwind.

Nice beach with some small inlet coves for nice wading and relaxing. Not too crowded. Of coarse you can reserve chairs and umbrellas but cheaper to bring your own and setup where you'd like.

Is it extremely windy on Windy Hill Beach or is that just a myth ?

We stay at Sea Villa in Windy Hill in all seasons and it is the same as any other place in NMB. You'll love it.

I would appreciate any information about this condo or the surrounding area. It's on Windy Hill beach. We've never been before. The condo is unit #308. The photos look pretty nice. Thank you!

Windy Hill is a decent section. It's the southern most section of NMB (closest to MB). The building is similar to many other condos in NMB...low rise and dated a little bit. It really depends on how the owners keep the unit up. If they keep it in good shape, then you'll be fine. I personally like the older, smaller condo buildings vs. the big resorts and high rises IF the units are clean and somewhat modern.
