About The Area
Travel to the northernmost part of North Myrtle Beach and you will find yourself in Cherry Grove, a residential area located between the beach and a salt marsh inlet. In 1968, Cherry Grove joined Ocean Drive, Crescent Beach and Windy Hill to form the City of North Myrtle Beach. Cherry Grove is known for the Fishing Pier at the Prince Resort, the widest beach along the Grand Strand and saltwater channels.
You will have a fabulous water view no matter where you stay in Cherry Grove. Bring your fishing equipment on your Cherry Grove vacation because you can fish from the dock of your channel vacation home, a charter boat or the pier.
Cherry Grove has a large grocery store, hardware store, a few restaurants, shops and seafood markets. Stop by an oceanfront bar for Happy Hour. When everything you need is right around the corner, why would you stay anywhere other than Cherry Grove?
