City of Myrtle Beach Umbrella Policy now in effect

Myrtle Beach Umbrella PolicyNo. Not an insurance umbrella policy for your house. A Myrtle Beach Umbrella Policy about actual beach umbrellas. The city of Myrtle beach has declared that canopies, tents, and other shading devices, not including umbrellas and small toddler tents are restricted during the summer. Beach Umbrellas should be no bigger than seven and a half feet in diameter and should be in line with, or behind, the established umbrella line. After Labor Day and until Memorial Day, tents and canopies are allowed.

Myrtle Beach Umbrella Policy

City officials say, although tents are convenient, there were so many of them that they blocked the ocean view, which affected public safety and inhibited people from enjoying the beach. “During summer months, umbrellas up to seven-and-a-half feet in diameter are allowed in line with or behind the established umbrella line, but no other shading devices are permitted. Tents up to 12-by-12 feet square and less than nine feet tall may be used from the day after Labor Day until Memorial Day, behind the umbrella line and 10 feet apart.”
