The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway is a partially man-made body of water that runs from Boston down the east coast through Florida. Sometimes erroneously referred to as the Intercoastal Waterway, it was built in 1919 for government use, and is maintained still by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Carolinas have the good fortune to host a large segment of the Intracoastal, and there are many wealthy "snowbirds" that leave the north in the fall and travel by yacht south, to and through North and South Carolina to avoid the winter weather.
In parts of Florida, oceanfront condos are a dime a dozen. The Miami condos on the waterway that have boat slip access are at a premium, often priced in the millions. Myrtle Beach has traditionally been a beach resort, but recently, more Myrtle Beach Intracoastal Waterway condos and marinas are being built along our portion of the ICW. We feel that the future will see these properties increase in price the same way. Nothing beats stepping out your back door to your own boat slip, spending an afternoon in paradise... skimming along the calm blue Intracoastal Waterway in a pontoon or luxury yacht.
There are only a couple of waterway condo resorts in Myrtle Beach so far:
Waterway Village off 501
There are quite a few new North Myrtle Beach waterway condos, especially right across the bridge in Little River. Houses and condos line the Intracoastal below the bridge, too. The future will see many more condos built along the intracoastal in downtown North Myrtle Beach. The best waterway condos include:
Barefoot Resort (Our #1 Choice!)
Harbour Ridge (Little River)
Lightkeepers Village (Little River)
Harbourgate Marina (Cherry Grove)
Carolina Yacht Landing
