Doesn't matter for how long you are planing on sun tanning do not forget to put a sunscreen... yes I know that you want to get darker skin faster and look good,but you don't want to be another red lobster on the street.
I see so many people in summer every evening after they spent time on the beach with a sunburn, so make your vacation more pleasant and use a sun lotion and you'll have more fun on your visit at Myrtle Beach.
Let's talk now about hurricane season which lasts from June through November. This means that during this period it is a little bit higher chance of hurricanes than at any other time of the year so there is nothing to worry about.
Many years go by without any hurricanes heading this way, and some years there are a few that we need to keep eye on it. However just to be on the safe side hurricane watches are often issued a few days in advance and you can stay updated by watching weather forecast.
