The weather in Myrtle Beach in September is amazing, with average highs of 85°F, and lows around 64°F. These summer temperatures are enjoyable to those who enjoy outdoor activities such as going to the beach, golfing, visiting the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, checking out the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, and so much more.

Beachgoers will love the fact that the average water temperature in Myrtle Beach in September is around 80°F. This creates perfect conditions for enjoying vacation days swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and basking in the southern Sun. Swimmers will also enjoy oceanfront pools at various Myrtle Beach hotels and resorts as well as waterparks that remain open until Labor Day.
