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.

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.

We have stayed in Crescent Beach the past few years. Its nice to be away from the "big" Myrtle Beach scene. The beaches are not as crowded. You can go many places in a golf cart. Has a nice small town feel.

Easy access to all beaches, lots of umbrellas in the summer & plenty of room for everyone. Many resort accommodation on the strand. In winter it is empty and great for sea shell or shark took collecting and walking.

Crescent Beach is one of the favorites in this area. Not typically as crowded as South Myrtle Beach, but close enough to all the attractions. We prefer to go during the off season, when the crowds are gone.

I purchased a condo in Crescent Beach 27 years ago and have not regetted it at all. I have a beautiful view of the ocean waves on a continual basis. I love to see the ocean and all the people it brings each tourist season.

No need. House located right on the beach. Just walk out the front door.

There have been life guards all the time when we visit. I would think you could rent fishing gear at one of the piers.
