Ready to Celebrate National Beach Day in Myrtle Beach? Here’s an Ideal Itinerary

For lovers of summertime’s signature elements and events, August 2023 is loaded with hot happenings. National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is set for Wednesday, August 2. A day later, National Watermelon Day follows on Thursday, August 3. For fans of sweets and campfire treats, National S’mores Day will be observed on Thursday, August 10. And the dog days of summer run through August 11.


But for many in the Myrtle Beach area’s coast-loving community, another August observance may be the month’s most anticipated — and for good reason. National Beach Day will be celebrated from coast to coast on Wednesday, August 30. And on the Grand Strand, you’re unlikely to be looked down upon if you observe this particular event all month long.


Consider this ideal itinerary for National Beach Day from the beach experts at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort — and feel free to use it on the big day itself or at any other point during the beach-friendly month of August:

Start Your Morning With Coffee on Your Balcony Overlooking the Beach

At Compass Cove, you won’t have to walk far to grab a great cup — the Compass Joe coffee shop in the lobby proudly serves Starbucks brand beverages.

Take the Kids Down to Build a Sandcastle on the Shoreline

When you’re staying at Compass Cove, the Atlantic Ocean and its white-sand beaches are just steps out the back door — and of course, sandcastle construction is highly encouraged.

Grab Lunch on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Found just up the beach from Compass Cove, the Boardwalk is filled with great spots to eat and exciting places to play, along with plenty of Atlantic Ocean vistas.

Compass Cove guests won’t have to venture far to grab the picnic’s to-go grub. The resort offers plenty of on-property food and beverage options, including The Crow’s Nest Restaurant, the Compass Rose, the Tiki Hut and Compass Joe.
