Are you an early riser? If so, you are in for a treat at The Strand resort in Myrtle Beach. While vacation is the time to turn off your alarm clock and just relax, waking up before 7 a.m. can have some major benefits that show you a whole different side of the Grand Strand.
Start your early morning off by grabbing a hot cup of joe from The Market Restaurant located at The Strand where breakfast is Free daily. You can also find local coffee shops and chain coffee shops such as Starbucks which is located within walking distance along Ocean Boulevard. Once you have some coffee in you, enjoy a nice walk along the beach or the Boardwalk. This is the best time to be down on the beach, because not only is the temperature cooler, but you will get to witness one of the best views in Myrtle Beach — the sunrise over the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
Even before the sun actually rises, the dark skies will begin to show vibrant colors, including various shades of pink, orange and yellow lining the beach. This is also the best time to look for dolphins out in the water. If you’re lucky, you will catch a picture-perfect moment as dolphins leap over crashing waves, with a beautiful sun beginning to peak over the horizon.
Once you catch a glimpse of one of these magical sights, you will want to see it every morning. If this is the case, be sure to switch it up a bit with where you decide to watch the day begin. The most convenient option for guests at The Strand is going to be from their private balcony. You can just crawl out of bed and enjoy the views, all in the comfort of your pajamas. If you get up in time, you may even be able to make yourself a cup of coffee, or head downstairs and grab a bite to eat at The Market Restaurant before seeing the sky begin to change colors.
The next most convenient and popular way to watch the sunrise is from the beach. Grab a blanket or towel, head on out to the soft sand, and get ready to witness what nature has to show you. This is even a great time to dip your toes in the water and walk along the sand, enjoying the sound of waves crashing, especially while the beach is practically empty. If you’re looking for a more active way to watch the sunrise, go for a run along the beach, the Boardwalk or Ocean Boulevard. Not only will the early morning breezes keep you cool, but you will get a show while enjoying your morning workout.
Now, if you really want to experience an unforgettable moment while visiting the Carolina coast, book a sunrise kayak tour with Express Watersports. You will get to enjoy the vast wildlife and listen to the fascinating history that your guide offers. You will definitely return home with amazing pictures from your journey.
Regardless of how or where you decide to enjoy the sunrise while staying at The Strand oceanfront boutique resort, you’ll create a memory that you’ll cherish for a lifetime!
