Millions of visitors spend their vacations in Myrtle Beach each year to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, oceanfront pools, aquatic playgrounds, beach bars, live entertainment and family friendly fun. Guests at The Breakers Resort can enjoy all of the above without leaving the best backyard in Myrtle Beach.

Located on the longest stretch of oceanfront property in the downtown district, The Breakers offers a great vacation in a resort paradise, a place where you are only an elevator ride away from your luxury accommodations to the best amenities on the beach. Home to more than 19 water features and other offerings that include fun activities for the kids to enjoy and relaxing places for the adults to chill out, The Breakers provides guests the perfect environment for the ideal Myrtle Beach vacation.

A day at The Breakers is hard to beat for those who love sand, surf, sun and fun. With an oceanfront deck and tanning lawn that run the length of the resort’s five towers, The Breakers’ stretch of coastline is the longest on The Strip, and its selection of water features and leisure activities is the broadest. With easy access between the pool decks and the beach, guests can follow their own flow by soaking up some sun, resting in the shade or having a splashing good time.

Stroll from tower to tower and check out all the great water features The Breakers has to offer. The main deck hosts all-day pool parties that include live music and DJs, karaoke, dance contests and pool games. Guests can dance in the pool or on dry land as the DJ leads the group in doing the “Electric Slide” and other dance routines. Other poolside entertainment includes jugglers, magicians, stilt-walkers and additional unique attractions, so you and your crew can enjoy a poolside seat for the party or jump right in and join the fun.

The Breakers’ selection of water attractions also includes a 418-foot lazy river that allows guests to gently roll down the stream aboard a tube while letting their troubles float away. Hot tubs provide a great place to relax and mingle with other guests, and an indoor pool section gives guests a shady spot to beat the heat or enjoy the water on a rainy day. The spacious tanning lawn offers comfortable beach chairs where you can read a book or take a nap while you catch some rays in the summer sun.

For our younger guests, the on-site Pirate Ship is the centerpiece of the pool deck. Offering a splash pad surrounded by the hull of an authentic-looking pirate ship, complete with the Jolly Roger flying from the mast and cannons aimed over the sides, this two-story water attraction provides a safe and fun environment where kids can cool off or burn off some energy while using their imaginations. The Pirate Ship is also surrounded by pool chairs so parents can relax while keeping a close eye on their children.

The Breakers Kids Club provides additional activities to keep the kids entertained. Featuring pool games, arts and crafts projects, ice cream and pizza parties, and other activities, the Kids Club encourages children to meet and interact with others their own age — and maybe even make some new friends while on vacation. Most activities are free of charge, except for a few with small fees for materials. A full schedule of Kids Club events is posted in the lobby.

This all adds up to The Breakers Myrtle Beach Resort experience that has brought guests coming back time after time for more than 80 years. Make The Breakers your new vacation destination, and prepare to have a great time in the area’s best backyard.
