Dog Regulations at Surfside Beach, SC

We often get asked about dog-friendly vacation rentals. After all, who wouldn't want to bring their four-legged kids along on the family trip? Surfside Beach does have strict policies when it comes to dogs on the beach during peak months, however. This is not only for the protection of all visitors, but also for the protection of your beloved fur kids. The sand is hot and the summer sun is powerful, making it a tough environment for canines. Here's the scoop on year-round dog rules so you can plan your vacation accordingly:

May 15 - September 15

Dogs or other domestic pets are not permitted on the public beach.

September 16 - May 14

Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach.

So if you're looking for the perfect getaway for your family and looking for dog-friendly rentals in Surfside Beach, try looking for fall, winter or early spring dates so that your pup can enjoy the beach as well. And don't forget that your pet must be up-to-date on all vaccinations (always a good idea before you travel anywhere) and owners are always responsible for picking up after dogs. Please help us keep the town of Surfside Beach looking beautiful for future visitors! And for those who love the idea of horseback rides on the beach, Surfside does not permit this. Horses and other large animals are not allowed on the beach at any time during the year.

The Best Times to Visit Surfside Beach, SC

If you’re a lover of the beach, you’ve probably spent all winter trying to decide when you’re going to plan your next beach vacation. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Once you’ve decided on the beach rental that’s perfect for your family and are ready to choose a date, check out our list of the best times to visit Surfside Beach, SC.


April is the perfect time for those who just can’t wait any longer to escape the chilly weather. Spring is in full effect and temperatures usually rest in the 70’s, making for some great weather that allows you to fully enjoy the outdoors. If you’re a golfer, April is also the perfect time to visit Surfside Beach, SC and try out some of the best golf courses in the area. Though some attractions may still be closed in April, there is no shortage of festivals to enjoy like the Horry County Fair, SpringFest and SOS Spring Safari.


In May, you’ll find that the weather in Surfside Beach, SC rests at about 80 degrees and the water temps have increased as well. Not only will the weather be ideal, you’ll also find that there are less crowds as May is not officially considered summer for many. On top of the attractions that you’ll find just minutes away in Myrtle Beach, you may also find yourself in the midst of some fun festivals like the Blue Crab Festival or the Mayfest on Main. Additionally, rates for hotels and beach rentals won’t be nearly as high as they are in peak months like June, July and August.

June and July

June and July are considered peak season for Surfside Beach, SC and surrounding areas and though rates may be higher, all attractions will be fully operational. The hot summer days of June and July quickly turn into hot summer nights, making your night time adventures just as enjoyable as your daytime adventures. For many, it’s also fun to find yourself amongst a crowd of other families laughing, enjoying the beach and parading around the surrounding areas like North Myrtle Beach.


October brings chilly fall weather to many areas, but in Surfside Beach, SC temperatures are still averaging in the 70’s, which makes for some relaxing beach days. Though daytime temps are higher, you’ll find that nighttime temps can quickly drop, but for many, this is a perk. Hot cocoa, a blanket and the beach, anyone?

What months do you think are the best times to visit Surfside Beach, SC?
