Myrtle Beach Spring Break Activities

The biggest attraction in Myrtle Beach is the ocean, but during Spring Break, the ocean may still be too cold to swim in. For the days during your vacation that you’d like to put on your bathing suit and take a dip, consider heading downstairs and enjoying a day at South Bay’s indoor/outdoor waterpark and pool. 

South Bay has the Boardwalk’s only waterpark with two waterslides, a kid’s splash pad, a lazy river, and three hot tubs in addition to their large multi-depth pool. During Spring Break, the pool area will still be enclosed (walls are removed in May), but you will have plenty of sunshine with our fully glass walls and roof. 

South Bay Inn & Suites also has a Game Room and Fitness Center on the lobby level. Challenge your friends and family to a round of pool, ping pong, or foosball in the Game Room. You can work up a sweat in our Fitness Center using one of many pieces of workout equipment or free weights.
