Geography

North Myrtle Beach is located at 33°49′20″N 78°40′52″W / 33.82222°N 78.68111°W / 33.82222; -78.68111 (33.822216, -78.680974).[3] According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 13.5 square miles (35.0 km²), of which, 13.0 square miles (33.8 km²) of it is land and 0.5 square miles (1.2 km²) of it (3.48%) is water.

The area is divided into four separate areas based on its former municipalities. These are Windy Hill, Crescent Beach, Ocean Drive, and Cherry Grove, a spit bordering North Carolina. Atlantic Beach, which lies inside of North Myrtle Beach, chose to remain its own town during the merger. It is serviced by the greater city but is independently run.

The current city government has pursued a policy of growth through annexation and in October 2008 annexed 2.1 square miles (5.4 km2) that resulted in the city extending from the North Carolina state line to the city limits of Myrtle Beach.
