What you probably also know is that in the summer, it can get pretty hot temperature-wise here in Myrtle Beach. Luckily, we've come up with an awesome list of fun ways to keep you and your family nice and cool this summer.
Caravelle Water Amenities
If the summer heat has you feeling lazy, we don't blame you. Conveniently enough, you can cool off right here at The Caravelle Resort. Enjoy a block-long poolscape consisting of many outdoor pools, whirlpools, and a lazy river. The kids will absolutely love having their very own kiddie lazy river to float down as well as our Wild Water Pool, featuring fountains, sprays, and bucket dumps.

Looking to stay cool with a little more thrill? Myrtle Waves Water Park will certainly do the trick. As the largest water park in South Carolina, they have everything from rafter rides like the Lazy River and the Racin' River, to seven different water slides to choose from. They even have an Ocean in Motion Wave Pool and a Caribbean-themed Saturation Station with waterfalls, slides, squirts, and splashes. Younger guests can splash around in the Bubble Bay, specifically designed for toddlers. Get your tickets here.
