The most unique gift shop on the Grand Strand, it has twenty-six thousand square feet of fun spread over seven levels. Located directly on the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk between Mr. Joe White Avenue and 9th Avenue North, just south of Plyler Park. The Gay Dolphin is now wheelchair accessible! An elevator lift was installed in March/April of 2015, which allows wheelchair access to 85% - 90% of the store.

If you want to find a gift to take home, you will find it at The Gay Dolphin. They have everything. So have some time before going, because you will need it.

The location is nice too. It's on the boardwalk. The beach and ocean is right there. Also the Sky Wheel is there. Great location.

The Gay Dolphin is an interesting store. It has many levels, some seem like they have been forgotten about. There is a wide variety of souvenirs at this place. Some are new and some still have dust on them. There is a wall just as enter with a large variety of postcards. I almost always buy my postcard s here as they are a good buy and have a range of choices. There is a section in back with Elvis memorabilia, there are sea shells, and there are dog statues and toys for kids. Almost everything here is reasonably priced. This place has been around it seems like forever. You can enter from the street or from the new boardwalk. It is worth a visit when downtown to pick a few economically priced items for those back home.

Great gift shop right on the Boardwalk close to the big skywheel that dominates the view of the shoreline. This gift shop has everything you could ever think of.

It was very crowded, no room to move around. Way too much to look at. Prices were to high for the quality of merchandise....
