Barefoot Landing takes a twist on regular outdoor malls. Surrounding a 27-acre lake, Barefoot Landing takes advantage of beautiful scenery utilizing docks allowing you to easily maneuver throughout.

  1. We love North Myrtle Beach. Conveniently located to Barefoot and Little River (where we eat every year). The Cherry Grove Pier is also a great attraction for our children and us as well. We can’t wait to come back next year!

  2. My buddies and I came down to Myrtle Beach. After driving around for a while we headed North to North Myrtle Beach. What a great idea that was. Great dining and atmosphere for us older folks. Grabbed a beer at a fun sports bar and even played some golf across the street. Might have to tell everyone that North Myrtle Beach is better than Myrtle Beach.

  3. The observation deck on the Cherry Grove Pier is a great attraction. Watched a fisherman catch something pretty decent size. The deck itself is a very cozy and relaxing area with a few benches for us to sit on. Great views!

  4. We stayed in a great condo just north of Little River in Calabash. THE perfect spot! We did several bicycle tours of the area: a local farm and a winery. We HIGHLY recommend the tour company: Bodacious Bob’s Beach Bicycle Tours. ABSOLUTELY the best time we’ve ever spent on the Carolina coast, We’ll never look at our beach vacation as just another beach getaway again! Very thrilled and much richer for the experience!

  5. Alligator Adventure and Barefoot Landing is an excellent place for the whole family. We rented a condo in North Myrtle Beach and went driving around the area. Just a few minutes down hwy 17 and we saw the signs for Alligator Adventure. Our son (who is 4) loved the snakes and the alligator show. Walking around Barefoot Landing is so relaxed with the water in between the shops with a foot bridge to get through. The water had the largest carp I have ever seen! We will definitely return next year!
