We camped at the Myrtle Beach KOA during this trip. It was a few blocks from the beach, but the beach there was a bit lacking for us (no public washrooms, no lifeguards). We decided to pay the small entrance fee and spend our beach day at this state park. We arrived before 10am, and had no trouble finding a nice spot. In fact, we rented an umbrella and two chairs from the lifeguards and it was definitely worth it! The cost was $30, but just to have a place out of the sun was more than worth it. The beach was clean, had plenty of showers and bathrooms, and several lifeguards. The lifeguards were constantly walking around and even cleared the beach (near the fishing pier) at one point because of a shark siting.
This beach also had a nice concession stand where we got some ice cream and few small souvenirs. The fishing pier was very busy with fisherman. We also saw someone who had gotten stung by a jellyfish, but we never saw any. There are plenty of signs posted, so make sure you take note of them.
