Some people call it the Intercoastal waterway, but it’s actually known as the Intracoastal Waterway. The IWC is a 3000 mile inland waterway that runs alongside the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast of the United States. It starts on the southern end in the Gulf of Mexico and ends north to Boston Massachusetts. There are many ports along the way, but it is water access that links many natural seaports and inlets with man-made canals. The South Carolina Intracoastal Waterway forms a roadway for boat transportation. Many people don’t know it, but the Intracoastal Waterway separates Myrtle Beach from the mainland and technically makes the Grand Strand an island. Locals affectionately call it the ‘big ditch’ or ‘the trench’, but this beloved water system is notorious with boaters, fisherman and watersport enthusiasts. In Myrtle Beach, the depth of the water is 12 feet, as per the federal project and the overhead clearance of fixed bridges in South Carolina is 65 feet.
In Myrtle Beach (Horry County) the majority Intracoastal Waterway homes are located just to the south in Socastee and Red Bluff which is further to the north past the swing bridge. Homes in this area of the IWC, range from simple 1000 square foot summer homes to 4500 heated square feet homes. If you are looking for a more luxurious lifestyle and have a large yacht then you may want to consider areas like The Grande Dunes, Barefoot Landing, Little River or Murrells Inlet. Each of these communities has a full-service marina numerous properties on the Intracoastal.
